Our Study Methodology

After helping our customers complete hundreds of thousands of home improvement jobs across the country—from carpet cleaning and plumbing to appliance repair, electrical services, and more—we created the SERVIZ Home Safety Ranking Index. What we have learned over the years is that customers, more than anything, want to ensure they maintain a healthy and safe home. Home safety is not just about adding an alarm system or having smoke detectors; it is also about keeping your home well maintained.

Homeowners increasingly want to keep up with their home maintenance to reduce the risk of fires, floods, earthquake damage, and even break-ins. The independent professionals in the SERVIZ network have helped thousands of customers reduce fire risks in their homes by replacing dirty vents and identifying improperly installed electrical switches and outlets. They have also reduced flood and earthquake risks by inspecting and repairing broken water pipes, sewer mains, and making sure water heaters are earthquake strapped and have properly installed overflow vents.

Consumers are also rightly concerned about who is coming inside their home. With that in mind, we created our Home Safety Ranking index to help all homeowners understand how their city and state ranks for home safety.

Our methodology was as follows: We sent a survey to 65,000 of our customers asking them how safe they feel in their homes, how they protect their homes, and what are their biggest safety concerns in their homes and neighborhoods. We took our survey responses and used the U.S. Census data that ranks each city on a crime index of 1-100 (100 being the safest). The two data points were then combined to determine our own proprietary safety grade for each city.

Our Home Safety Ranking Index includes actual survey results, quotes from our customers, and the percentage of professionals who sought to join our network that have failed our background check.

We understand how important it is to trust someone who is working to make your home safer. This is why our standards for accepting professionals into our network are high. Since 2015, we have rejected over 15% of professionals seeking to join the SERVIZ network.

We hope that by providing this level of detail for each city we serve we are helping communities better understand how they can keep their homes, families, and friends safe.

Our Huntington Beach Home Safety Ranking is a result of our proprietary data collected over the last 5 years serving over 200 thousand customers, and 300 thousand home improvement jobs, and other publicly available sources.

What Do Locals think?
What do the residents of California have to say about home safety?
I live in a building with a doorman so I feel fairly secure. My biggest concern are the mentally ill that walk around the neighborhood, some with severe schizophrenia. Mostly they are not a threat but sometimes they act out and throw garbage cans, shout, etc. And I'm mostly concerned that other people in the building will bring some element in with them that might endanger the rest of the tenants. We had someone get shot in the hallway over a drug deal and it was someone that came in with the tenant who was shot. An isolated case, but when you live among people you don't know, you can't be sure what environments they have around them.

As a small building apartment dweller fire isn't as much of a concern and floods are not an issue where I live. Living on a major Los Angeles, CA street my biggest concerns are crime safety as many people pass by my home daily so break-in robbery is more of a concern than anything else. Earthquakes are a likely part of life in California and I don't live on a hillside or in a building of questionable stability so that doesn't factor into my perception of safety in my home.
