Our Study Methodology

After helping our customers complete hundreds of thousands of home improvement jobs across the country, from carpet cleaning to plumbing, SERVIZ created the Home Safety City Ranking pages. 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 concerns about who is coming inside their home. With that in mind, we created our Home Safety Ranking pages to help all homeowners understand how their city and state ranks for home safety.

Our methodology was as follows: We sent out a survey to 65,000 of our customers asking them how safe they feel in their homes, how they protect their homes, and what their biggest concerns were regarding safety 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 pages include 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. Which 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, family, and friends safe.

Our San Mateo Home Safety Ranking is a result of our proprietary data collected over the last 5 years serving over 150 thousand customers, half a million home improvement jobs, and other publicly available sources.

“At first i was skeptical about using Serviz because I saw some unfavorable ratings on Yelp, but I decided to give them a try anyway..I was glad I did..we needed our refrigerator fixed before a big event at my home this weekend..the service technician texted me that he was on his way, and when he arrived, he resolved the problem, and was only charged the $39.00 service fee...you can't get that any cheaper elsewhere!! I will plan to use Serviz in the future and hope that they continue with their excellent service and low prices!!”
