Residential Shredding During Times of Self-Isolation


If you have the capability to do so, working from home is great. You have ample flexibility in terms of how and where you work, you can wear what you wish, and there is essentially no commute time (other than the walk from your bedroom to your office or the kitchen!).

On the flip side of things, some people struggle to remain productive when working from home because, well, there are so many distractions. You have access to your TV or maybe you have to care for your children.

During this time, given the recent events of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of us are self-isolating or working from home.

While working from home feels much different than working in an office, measures still must be taken to protect yourself, your business and your clients. If you’re a business owner or an employee, eliminating confidential documents properly is essential.

At Safeshred, we provide residential shredding services, which can help businesses who have employees working from home during this time.


It’ll Give You and Your Employees Peace Of Mind

The pandemic is at the forefront of everyone’s minds right now. People may be worried about their finances or health. One of the last things you want to worry about is someone stealing your identity. Recent studies have shown that 1 in 10 people fall victim to identity theft. In 2019, California was the most popular state in terms of identity theft attacks.

While cybercrimes have been the more recent trend, physical document destruction can help protect you, your employees, and your clients.


It’s Easy

These days, most of us are fortunate to have the option to do most of our tasks from home. We’re able to order groceries online, conduct business, and stay in touch with those we care about.

Using residential shredding services while working from home is one of your most effective methods to maintain compliance.

A positive aspect of residential shredding services is that you don’t have to leave your home, which is critical during these times of self-isolation and physical distancing.


What Documents Should I Shred?

  • Documents that contain personal information such as name, birthday, address, phone number or email
  • Employee pay stubs
  • Void checks
  • Credit card information
  • Copy of Sales Receipts
  • Copies of sales receipts
  • Confidential client information
  • Employment records


How Does It Work?

The process is simple, affordable, and worry-free.

While working at home, you may feel as though you have more time on your hands. We will work with you and your schedule to get the job done as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

Schedule an appointment with us and we’ll stop by in our mobile shred trucks or our rapid response shred truck. All you have to do is have your documents bagged and ready to go. We will then shred all your documents right there, on-site. Feel free to watch as we shred your documents.


Don’t Forget About Product Destruction

When it comes time to get rid of your documents, don’t forget about product destruction. Now that you’ll be home more often, you may also be taking the time to go through items you’ve stored over the years. Did you know that simply wiping a hard drive of all its contents doesn’t ensure your protection? We also offer media and hard drive destruction services to help protect you.


We’ll Make The Process Simple

One of the last things you want to do is be out and about in public.

Safeshred is here for you to help you maintain compliance while staying at home. We continue to provide our on-site and residential shredding services to customers who need it.

Don’t Just Shred. SAFESHRED!
