Live rock

I have a couple of large pieces of live rock that was in my tank at one point. I removed it about 8 months ago. It has been sitting in my basement next to the furnace since then. I want to reintroduce it but am unsure how. Can I just put it back in and assume everything on it is dead? Should a acclimate it in a bucket until ammonia/nitrate is gone?

Thanks,

I would re cure it. We have an article in our SW articles section about curing rock.
