PREPARATION FOR HOUSTON PARANORMAL RESEARCH TEAM INVESTIGATION
HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE AN INVESTIGATION TAKES PLACE
HIDE OR REMOVE ALL VALUABLE OR SENTIMENTAL ITEMS.
Do this - not because we're thieves. We recommend this because this ensures we can't get blamed for valuable items during investigation.
HPRT DOES NOT INVESTIGATE HOMES OR BUSINESSES SMALLER THAN 1000 SQ FEET
We just can't fit our team and all the equipment in anything smaller than 1000 sq feet. We have tried it before and it just doesn't work.
RESIDENCE MUST BE CLEAN.
We ask this because of camera wires, walking, safety and analysis of evidence.
ONLY PERSONS WHO LIVE IN THE HOUSE SHOULD BE AT AN INVESTIGATION.
We try to have as few people around because of many reasons:
-the more voices on a recording, the harder it is to find evidence
-fear feeds fear - the less people there are, the calmer people are
-video gets contaminated with people and movement
-entities don't like a crowd, they hide or become intimidated
-atmosphere needs to be calm, quiet and controlled
WE WILL CONDUCT AN INTERVIEW OVER THE PHONE WHEN MAKING AN APPOINTMENT.
We ask questions such as: What activity has occurred? When did the activity start? What would you like HPRT to do? Where is the activity happening? How many people live there? Do you feel threatened? etc... )
HPRT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY PROPERTY DAMAGED DURING AN INVESTIGATION.
We are not going to wreck your house, we just we have to protect ourselves.
HPRT IS LIMITED TO THE HOUSTON/GALVESTON AREA BUT CAN MAKE EXCEPTIONS, CALL US.
DURATION OF INVESTIGATION:
4hrs - 7hrs
HPRT WILL KEEP A COPY OF ALL AUDIO AND VIDEO FILES OF INVESTIGATION FOR ARCHIVING AND FOR EVIDENCE PURPOSES.
HPRT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO POST OR PRINT ANY EVIDENCE OBTAINED AT A CLIENTS HOUSE DURING AN INVESTIGATION.
HPRT understands that some clients DO NOT want their homes, names, belongings and personal lives displayed all over the world wide web. Because of this, HPRT will NOT post, print or speak of any information AT ALL of an investigation upon client's request.
HPRT NEVER POSTS A CLIENT'S FIRST OR LAST NAME, ADDRESS, EXTERIOR PICTURES OF RESIDENCE, OR EXACT LOCATION.
We try hard not to alert the public of location of investigation for privacy of client unless the client wishes otherwise.
HPRT WILL NEVER BRING MORE THAN 7 MEMBERS TO A RESIDENTIAL INVESTIGATION.
BE AWARE THAT HPRT HAS NO CONTROL OVER AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AN INCREASE OR DECREASE IN SPIRIT ACTIVITY.
Remember, ghosts are just like the living. Not every person likes someone recording and taking pictures of them unexpectedly. For that reason, rarely (but sometimes) an entity will try to fight back or scare the living as punishment. Or they may hide.
HPRT CANNOT REMOVE AN ENTITY FROM A RESIDENCE.
Removal is not our line of expertise. We can have a "sit down" with the entity, but ultimately, whether it stays or leaves is up to it. Demonic entities won't listen to reason so for that situation a religious or magical practitioner should be summoned.
HPRT IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY RELIGiOUS OR MAGICAL ORGANIZATIONS OR PRACTITIONERS.
In other words, we CANNOT find clients religious help.
HOUSTON PARANORMAL RESEARCH TEAM DOES NOT CHARGE FOR SERVICES.
All services are completely free of charge.
HPRT WILL DOCUMENT HAUNTING WITH AUDIO, VIDEO, EYEWITNESS TESTIMONIES & LOCATION HISTORY.
We use a wide range of equipment and techniques.
HPRT MAY TAKE UP TO 3 WEEKs TO ANALYZE EVIDENCE
-We have day jobs and have to go over all the evidence in real time.
-We will research any names, places or topics picked up through evidence analysis.
-Patience is important.
BECAUSE A HAUNTING DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND, SOMETIMES HPRT HAS TO MAKE MORE THAN ONE INVESTIGATION OF A LOCATION.
We can't always diagnose a haunting in just one visit. This is not what clients want to hear but it is the truth. Remember, this is not a TV show. Real time research takes real time.
BE OPEN MINDED.
Sometimes it's hard to understand what is happening when paranormal activity occurs. The person has lived their whole life not believing in an after-life and suddenly their whole point of view is changed. Open- mindedness helps to digest & make sense of experiences.
Remember, a ghost was once a person, too. Just like you and I, they had a family they loved, friends, problems, and ambitions. The majority of them are NOT evil or negative. Many times, a ghost might appear to be trying to scare you but is really trying to make you aware that it is there.The only way it has found to communicate is to flip off the TV, knock on walls, shut a door, etc. They are trying to get your attention. Also remember, many ghosts want to leave your location as badly as you want them to leave. They just don't know how.
