Rexel’s guide to shredding at home

Most offices have various tech tools they use every day. However, the paper shredder is one of those tools that often get looked over for use in the home, even though it can have many benefits.

Shredders provide a sense of privacy that is hard to find with other types of technology. When documents are put through a shredder, they can no longer be the targets for identity thieves; shredding technology provides the peace of mind that the sensitive information is properly destroyed and irrecoverable. Although in the office this is regarded as vital protocol, it is also important to protect sensitive information in the home, such as personal mail, old credit cards or account statements.

Furthermore, with the May 2018 GDPR deadline nearing, shredding your documents is becoming exceedingly important because privacy laws are becoming more stringent. As businesses take steps to ensure they are in line with the new data security policies, why not take similar steps in your home?

With these benefits in mind, most people wonder what type of shredder they should buy. This blog will explore which shredders are best suited to the needs of you and your home.
