Your home is likely the most valuable asset you own.
If you own a second home in Southwest Florida, it can be difficult to stay on top of things like repairs, swimming pool maintenance and lawn maintenance. If a hurricane is in the forecast, dropping everything to drive in (or fly in) may simply not be in the cards.
If you’ve been thinking about hiring a home watch service but you’re still on the fence, below are just a few of the advantages this type of decision will bring.
Repair issues can be handled in a timely manner
People who aren’t at their home all the time won’t be able to keep tabs on things in and around the home. For example, if your swimming pool filter stops working and no one is around to notice, you’ll likely find yourself dealing with a massive algae bloom once you return.
If you left in a hurry and you didn’t close the refrigerator, or you didn’t turn one of your faucets off all of the way, these types of things can wreak havoc on your electricity and water bills.
A home watch company can also help you deal with unwanted furry tenants. If rodents make their way onto your property in your absence, we can help ensure the issue is dealt with promptly and effectively.
If the power goes out, a home watch company can help ensure your security system, light timers and clocks are reset.
As you can imagine, there are any number of things that could go wrong in your home when you’re not there. When you work with a reputable service provider, you can rest easy in knowing you have a licensed professional who is there to help handle the types of things you’re too far away to handle on your own.
Keeping your home from looking vacant
One of the most important reasons to consider a home watch company in Southwest Florida relates to keeping would-be burglars at bay.
When junk mail starts to pile up, trash cans are left out at the curb or if light timers aren’t working properly, would-be wrongdoers will be far more likely to target your home for a break in.
