Many Canadian homeowners have accumulated piles of paper, old electronic gadgets and even computer hard drives. All of these documents and products contain a lot of personal information. With secure document destruction, you can enjoy a home that is free of paper and electronic clutter. The secure document shredding also provides you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing your information has been safely destroyed and cannot be accessed by unauthorized users.
Erases Archived Data on Old Hard Drives
If you have one or more old laptops, desktop computers, tablets and other electronic devices, hard drive destruction is important. The archived data can be accessed by experienced hackers even if you thought that you had wiped the hard drive clean. Erasing the archived data helps to get rid of digital clutter that contains important personal information, such as your bank account, driver’s license number, date of birth and other identifying information.
Eliminates Old Files and Piles
Perhaps you have old files of receipts that contain your credit or debit card information, or a stack of old manuscripts that you no longer need but are unsure of what to do with them. Paper shredding services make it easy to clear your home of these piles of unneeded papers. Old piles of paper are attractive to insects and can generate a lot of dust. By having these old papers shredded and recycled, your home will be much cleaner. You will have more space in your filing cabinets to store and access the information that you use on a regular basis.
Gets Rid of Unneeded Confidential Information
Many people have confidential information that they no longer need, but are unsure of how to safely dispose of so that nobody can see the information. Secure paper shredding allows you to get rid of the confidential clutter such as old summaries from medical visits, past bank account statements that you have already reconciled, years-old credit card statements and your old delivery receipts with your bank account information recorded on them. Safely shredding these old documents gets them out of your way so that you can use the space in your home for other things. Your home will be tidier and easier to clean when the no longer needed papers and files have been removed.
Paper clutter can be one of the most challenging things to keep out of your home. Even old hard drives contribute to the clutter of information that is no longer useful to you. Secure document shredding and hard drive destruction make it easier and simpler for you to maintain a clean and peaceful home.
