A Note About Home Safety

We always keep your keys secure. Keys are kept unlabelled, with only an identifying code. After your trip, we can either return your key to you or keep it for future services. We do not leave your key at your home on our last visit in the event we need access to your home should you not be able to arrive as planned. Accommodating last-minute requests is always easier if we have your key on file.
