Frequently Asked Questions About Paper Shredding Machines
Paper shredding machines can effectively destroy sensitive documents for privacy reasons. You can buy a small one for your home, to use for expired bills or credit cards, or you can buy a large, heavy duty, commercial grade machine for office use to destroy confidential papers. Many machines not only shred, they also strip or chop credit cards, and even make paper into fine bits of confetti. Here are some frequently asked questions about paper shredding machines and services:

Do you offer mobile paper shredding services?
Many companies offer mobile paper shredding services, where they will visit your office on site to perform the shredding there. At your request, they can also take your documents to a secure shredding plant to perform document destruction.

What are the different kinds of shredders?
There are many different kinds, such as strip and cross cut shredders, with the main difference involving level of security. A strip cut machine simply produces long strips of paper, while cross cut machines produce confetti-like particles, thereby offering much higher security. They are also more expensive, so budget accordingly.

What do I need to do to maintain the shredder?
If you have a small residential use shredder, you probably don’t need to do much at all. If you have a large office machine that sees plenty of daily use, you may consider using an automatic oil applicator to keep it lubed up and running smoothly. Also, if your machine doesn’t feature an automatic shut-off, turn it off when not in use to save the motor and electricity.

Paper shredding machines help individuals and businesses protect the security of their documents. Heavy duty, industrial machines can quickly turn reams of paper, old credit cards and other difficult to dispose of items into confetti, rendering them unreadable. Whether working in a commercial environment in which paper shredding is a legal requirement or shredding personal bills to secure private identifying information, these devices are essential to keeping personal information safe. There are a few types of shredders that are available on the market. Modern, electric models can quickly cut through papers with little manual effort, requiring nothing more than to feed the document into the top of the machine. Within the machine, blades rotate which will cut through bank statements and other papers, turning them into cross-cut strips which are difficult to reassemble. The capacity of each shredder varies, and users should be aware that feeding too much paper at a time may require a visit from a technician for repairs. Shredders are primarily designed to provide a great level of security to one's trash. While they work much in the same way that a mill grinder would, the cross-strips that they produce make discerning the original text of a document undecipherable. After being passed through a shredder, paper and plastic items may be disposed of with the regular recycling without worry about security. With regular use, parts of shredders can begin to show signs of wear. Blades may chip and rotating mechanisms may begin to burn out. Office supply stores are a good source of information, both in terms of purchasing a new model or for finding technicians who can repair a current one.
