Are there \'talking marks\' around words that people say? When I read my writing, do I have a comma or a full stop when I pause? Is it neatly written? The next two deal with helping to make the reading of your writing more interesting and meaningful. Do I have sentences that begin with \'And\', \'Then\' or \'But\'? These words did not improve your writing. Do I have interesting sentence beginnings? Have you used phrases containing adjectives and adverbs to help add interest to your writing?
The checklist should be in writing. If some representing themselves as a home watch company cannot produce a written checklist, save your time and money. These are people who will \'work from memory\' to accomplish what they do. How can they show accomplishment of each item? Just ask them! Without a written checklist you have no idea what was actually done. They may have run through the property and ensured there were no fires, and left. Without a written checklist, you have no idea. A good company will keep the checklist for reference in case they believe there may be a problem in the future.
