Another Reason to Go Digital: Office Clutter Attracts Pests.

If having all of your company’s vital records scanned for easy and secure digital storage isn’t enough to convince you to free up office storage space, maybe the fact that paper clutter can attract pests is enough!

Pests of all kinds love our messes. Even if all of your paper files are neatly organized in cardboard boxes, they’re not immune to intrusion from insects, spiders, and rodents. Typically, these animals are looking for a place to call home – and they might just find it in your storage room.

If that wasn’t bad enough, some animals like cockroaches, termites, and silverfish can metabolize the cellulose in cardboard and paper. This means leaving boxes of papers around not only provides them with great places to hide, but also with the food they need to survive and raise thousands of offspring!

Hiring an exterminator will only help you deal with a pest problem once it’s there, but it won’t resolve the root cause. It’s even likely that an exterminator will advise you to remove paper and clutter from your storage spaces to prevent new occupants from moving in.

If hearing rodents scurrying around or seeing dozens of bugs scatter when you flick on the light doesn’t sound appealing, perhaps it’s time to consider scanning and digitally archiving your records. Not only will you remove the incentive for pests to stick around when they’re house hunting, but you can also free up storage space around your home or office and reduce fire hazards.
