What is Records Cleanup?

Records cleanup refers to the process of systematically reviewing, organizing, and managing a company’s records. This involves determining which documents should be retained, archived, or securely destroyed according to a retention schedule. The aim is to keep only records necessary for legal compliance, operational needs, or historical significance.

Why is Records Cleanup Important?

Records cleanup is crucial as it ensures that only necessary documents are retained while obsolete or redundant records are securely disposed of. It’s a critical step in maintaining an organized and compliant records management system. An organized records system improves the accessibility and usability of important documents, enhancing overall operational efficiency and productivity.

By eliminating unnecessary records, companies can free up valuable storage space, both physically and digitally. Cleanup also improves data security, as proper records cleanup involves the secure destruction of sensitive documents, safeguarding your organization against potential data breaches and identity theft.
