How often should paper shredder blades be oiled?

Category: Office Supplies


Paper shredding oil is recommended for use on all high security and high volume paper shredders. In fact, all paper shredders should be oiled regularly in order to keep them operating properly. The frequency of oiling your shredder is the key and that will depend on how regular you shred documents and the type of shredder you use.

For all cross-cut shredders, oiling every 50-100 sheets is recommended. Make sure that the manufacturer recommended shredding oil is used. Paper shredding oil is a unique mixture that creates little to no residue. Using a non-approved lubricant will create paper dust which may clog the blades and possibly void the warranty on your shredder.
