31 Aug Emergency! Protecting Your Property in a Crisis
Quick – you’re away from your home, either on vacation or back with your primary home up north, and something goes wrong.
What do you do? How do you handle a crisis with your property? And how do you make sure your home is protected?
If you don’t have someone watching your home, you’re in trouble. Anything – from a water leak to an electrical fire, a hurricane, or some other emergency – can spell disaster for your property if it isn’t taken care of promptly.
Fortunately, there’s one way you can ensure your home is safeguarded in the event of a crisis: partner with a dedicated home watch service.
How a Crisis Should Be Handled
A home watch service works by keeping tabs on your home when you’re away.
We inspect your home to make sure everything is working as it should be. This gives us an opportunity to quickly spot anything wrong or broken that can damage your home. For example, if a pipe bursts, you want to fix it right away before it destroys parts of your home. If you’re away, you’ll never know – unless you have someone on watch.
If a crisis happens, your home watch service should:
- Be on the scene to supervise
- Immediately contact a specialist (plumber, electrician, etc.)
- Communicate with the specialist on your behalf
- Call the authorities if necessary
- Make arrangements in a timely manner for prompt action
- Communicate with you as soon as possible to keep you in the loop
The goal is to act quickly and get the situation under control. You can’t do that because you’re not there, but we will be there and can act as your representative on the scene.
Finding the Right Help
When a home emergency happens, you want someone you can trust by your side. You want someone who has the experience necessary to take care of whatever may happen – not someone who just watches homes “on the side” or doesn’t specialize in home watch services.
Plus, the person in charge must be calm, professional, clear-thinking, and able to handle pressure. Bad things can happen to a home when the owners are away, and every action matters. Only the best home watch services can ensure your home is protected.
