Paper Shredding For Residential

Posted by Dustin Rushing on May 9, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Many people may assume that residential shredding isn't as important as commercial shredding. They may think that a major company has far more to protect than the standard citizen. But this train of thought is exactly what leads to the nearly 60 million reported cases of identity theft in America. From medical to financial fraud, there are an infinite number of ways for criminals to take advantage of your documents. To make matters worse, it doesn't take much for criminals to start unwinding your life story. A stray receipt or an old bill from your doctor may be all they need to start chipping away at your information.

Commercial Vs At Home Shredders

Posted by Dustin Rushing on Apr 23, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Some people may think they don't have a use for professional shredding if they have an at-home machine. Or they may think it's cheaper over time to pay for a single shredder than multiple commercial shredding sessions. Others may think that just ripping important papers up by hand is more than enough to protect their information. And while this may be true in some circumstances, it's not a long-term solution that will really protect your privacy. An at-home shredder can only handle one (or, at most, a few) sheets at a time. It shreds papers into length-wise strips that can be put back together without a lot of effort. Commercial shredding services can not only handle large volumes of papers, but it destroys them in such a way that no one can get their hands on them for their own gain.
