Home Office Paper Shredding and Security

Why You Should Consider Professional Shredding for a Home Office

July 29, 2016


Working from home can be very rewarding. Not only do you never have to worry about getting stuck in traffic on the way to work, you can do your tasks at times that work best for you.

But, no matter how much time and energy you put into making your home office an efficient, well-equipped workplace, you usually can’t replace all the functions of a real office. From calling the guy in IT when your computer dies, to having to do your own office cleaning, there are more than a few things that are either difficult or impossible to have in a home office.

Corporate Security in the Home Office

Whether you work at home for yourself, or you do so for a company, there’s one area that most homes are much less well-equipped to handle than most regular places of business.

Security. Think about it. You can probably figure out a way to get into your locked house through a basement window. But you probably can’t do the same for most professional offices. And most home office workers don’t have any sort of security system around sensitive corporate documents – whether for their own business or the company they work for, or for their customers.

Here’s why, if you work in a home office, either for yourself or for a company, you should consider a professional shredding service for your corporate documents.

1. Your Home Office Shredder Doesn’t Cut It

We mean that literally. Many small office shredders do not shred paper into small enough bits to completely secure the information that’s on the document.

2. Customer Protection

If sensitive documents are lost during a break-in, it could affect more than your company. Any customer information on those documents would suddenly be in the hands of criminals and you would then be responsible for the misuse of the information.

3. It’s Easier and Less Expensive Than You Think

Professional shredding services aren’t the big, complex operation that many people think them to be. In fact, some paper shredding services let you bring your documents to a convenient location for immediate destruction that you can witness. That means that you can include shredding along with your other errands.

Shredding your business and personal documents isn’t a costly chore. It’s peace of mind.
