When your laboratory needs to move, is being downsized, or is closing altogether, you will need the services of an experienced lab packing company like AEG. Before we arrive to make sure that your lab packing experience goes smoothly, we’re going to take you through what lab packing is and how you can prepare for it. Let’s get started.
What is lab packing?
Lab packing is not necessarily packing up a laboratory, as you may think. Lab packing refers to the disposal of hazardous chemicals via a drum or large pail. If your company is a lab, a hospital, semiconductor plant, or machine shop and you have many small containers of waste that you need to get rid of, then you may benefit from lab packing services. We can take those chemicals, segregate them, and transport them safely for disposal.
Check your lab’s inventory.
It may seem like a simple task, but taking inventory can often be a very time consuming task. If you know that you are going to need lab packing services in the next month, then start taking inventory as early as possible. Make sure that all items including chemicals, storage, utensils, tools, and labels are accounted for. We offer inventory taking services, but it’s always good to double and triple check to ensure that nothing gets left behind. You should also take care to differentiate what you are going to keep and what you are going to dispose of before we can begin the lab packing process. Again, we will be handling much of this ourselves, but your added eyes can only help the project.
Clean your lab.
When it’s time to move your lab, you don’t want to spend extra time making sure that the facility is left in good condition. Try to clean it up early and then keep it that way until your moving day comes. Things like counters, floors, walls, and even furniture pieces can all use a good scrub now and then, but you want to leave the facility looking its best when you go. This is especially true if someone else is going to be moving into the space after you. When it comes to the dangerous chemicals, however, you should leave that to the professionals.
