14 Mar Top Reasons You Need a Home Watch Company in SWFL
If you’re on the fence about hiring a home watch company, you should know that the decision to do so comes with several benefits. This is especially true if your SWFL vacation property (or winter home) is often left unattended for months at a time.
Below are just a few of the reasons you should hire one.
We’ll be here if an alarm goes off
If your alarm system is triggered, you’ll be too far away to deal with the issue yourself. At Gulf Shore Home Watch & Concierge it’s our job to be your eyes and ears on the ground.
We can make sure your home is secure
It’s natural for people to be frazzled when it’s time to pack up and head to the airport (or start an hours-long drive to another state.) As such, it’s not at all unusual for people to forget to lock doors and windows, and in some cases, forget to turn the HVAC system off. When you hire a home watch service, you can rest assured that someone will be in SWFL who can attend to anything you might have forgotten to handle yourself.
We’ll be here to spot rodents and/or bug infestations
Bugs, mice and squirrels can do quite a bit of damage. If the damage is left unchecked for too long, you could find yourself dealing with thousands of dollars in repairs. A home watch company knows how to spot these types of infestations early on. The sooner you catch it, the better off.
We’ll monitor your home for leaks
Tropical storms and in some cases, thunderstorms can do quite a bit of damage. When you work with Gulf Shore Home Watch & Concierge, we’ll keep an eye on your roofing system and we’ll inspect your home for signs of damage. We’ll also check to make sure that the pipes underneath your sinks, and your hot water heating system aren’t showing signs of failure. Much like rodent damage, if water damage goes unchecked for too long, it can cost an arm and a leg to repair.
