Overfeeding the shredder can cause damage to the shredder teeth or burning out the motor.
Disintegrator shredders provide the highest level of security since the paper is reduced to tiny pieces or even powder, but they are very expensive for home use and are not usually necessary for household security.
Paper draws moisture out of it's surroundings, therfore, the shredder's teeth should be lubricated regularly to keep the machine operating smoothly.
