Although every investigation is different, the information on this page will provide
a high-level understanding of the process.
When we receive an investigation request, someone will call you to conduct a brief
phone interview. We will review your situation, answer any questions as honestly
as we can and, if appropriate, set up a time for a preliminary meeting. During the
"Prelim", someone will come to your location to get a tour, further discuss the activity,
and speak with the family members. We will go through the details of what is involved
in an investigation and decide if that is the appropriate course of action.
Our investigations are typically on Friday or Saturday nights from 7:30 p.m. until
around midnight, although we are flexible depending on the needs of the client and
the specifics of the situation. Many people assume that if they are only having activity
at specific times, say 3 a.m., that we need to be there at that time. That is usually
not the case. If there is a paranormal presence in the home, we usually get the evidence
we need without an overnight stay, but each case is different so investigations are
planned on a case-by-case basis.
On the date of your investigation the team will arrive in unmarked cars and with
as little fanfare as possible. The size of the team is dictated by the size and layout
of the location, but is typically two to six investigators. We will have you give
the team a brief tour, then will set up our equipment and go lights out. We ask that
you keep the number of people present for the investigation to a minimum as large
numbers of people can contaminate our evidence. Once we have concluded for the evening,
we will collect our equipment and leave your home exactly as we found it.
We will then review all of the evidence we gathered. Typically this takes about 3
to 4 weeks. After we have analyzed all of our evidence we will contact you to schedule
a review of our findings, also known as the "Reveal". We will provide both a written
report and a digital copy of all the evidence, as well as any other pertinent information
we may have gathered. At that time we can talk about potential next steps, if desired.
