Is Your Home Safe When You Leave? | Southwest Florida Home Watch Service

Whether you stay at your Florida home all year round, or you only come and visit during the holidays, it’s important to make sure that your home is safe and sound when you’re not there.

Even if your Florida home is your primary residence, there will be times when you won’t be home – and your home will be all by itself. And even if you have a neighborhood watch, most of the time when you’re gone there won’t be a watchful eye on your property.

Unless you use a home watch service, that is.

With my home watch service, I make sure your home is taken care of and safe when you’re not there. A big part of that is checking your exterior for general security – is everything where it should be and in good working order?

For example, your doors and windows are the most vulnerable parts of your home. They’re frequently ports of entry for would-be burglars and criminals. An unlocked – or worse, broken – door or window is an open invitation for anyone who would come by and steal your valuables.

I make sure your doors and windows and sliders are all securely locked and intact. If they aren’t, I rectify the situation, even if it involves calling a contractor to fix damaged ones.

All of this is something you simply can’t – or shouldn’t – worry about when you’re away from the home, especially for an extended period of time. You have other things on your mind; what is going on with your home shouldn’t be one of them.

I encourage anyone who lives in the Southwest Florida area to employ a home watch service. If you are interested, contact me – I’m more than happy to help.
