Safe Documents Storage

Anyone with important documents that they cannot afford to lose should keep them safely. There are many methods to protect sensitive data from environmental damage. Some of the most commonly used methods include digital and physical storage.

Most people store their most important documents in the filing cabinet at home or in a box that is locked. A small safe with a lock can offer extra security for the most important documents such as marriage and birth certificates. Social Security cards, title to the house, and insurance policies. These safes are built to withstand extreme temperatures as well as water damage due to fire. These safes are often equipped with a lock of high quality that is able to resist being broken or pulled. Certain safes have a particular design which insulates their interior to protect against heat damage to documents.

Some individuals choose to go digital and create secure folders on their computer or external drive. This can also reduce the amount of paper clutter and make it easier for users to access. It also offers the added benefit that the file is secured and you can track who has viewed it. Digital storage is more reliable and affordable than paper.

If you’re looking for an extra layer of protection it is a great idea to place the documents in protective sleeves or containers made from archives material. These materials are lignin-free which means they last longer. You can also keep your documents in the refrigerator or freezer to shield them from heat and moisture.
