About South Sound Paranormal Research

South Sound Paranormal Research serves homeowners and businesses in Southwestern Washington and Northwestern Oregon. 

As paranormal investigators, we document everything. If it moves, makes a sound, causes ambient temperature/pressure changes, or even if someone sneezes... it's documented. We seek natural causes first by whatever means possible before turning to paranormal explanations

We consider our client first and use the time allotted to us as efficiently as possible. We are dedicated to client confidentiality. We normally wear shirts with our logo in front and "SSPR" across the back but can be discrete at the clients' request.

A Paranormal Research Team You Can Trust

As paranormal investigators, it is our mission to be client focused. We conduct a criminal background check for all of our team members. We want you to feel safe when we come into your home or business, so it is important that each of our team members is an honest person with a great deal of integrity. Many of our investigators hold positions of trust in their day jobs, working for government agencies, police forces, and child advocacy groups, among others.

When SSPR investigates your location, we do so after a comprehensive consultation. Following the investigation, we provide a detailed report that includes any audio, video, or photographic evidence, as well as documentation of personal experiences. All of our findings are confidential.

At SSPR, we never charge for paranormal investigation or research. We seek to educate our clients and help them find ways to manage the anomalous activity they experience.
