What Does a Home Watch Service Do?

What Does a Home Watch Service Do?

As a homeowner, you understand that there are any number of problems that can arise in a household. Pipes break, water heaters fail and there are times when ants, mice or other types of rodents try to move in.

And while these types of problems are a nuisance, if you live in a home full-time, you’ll notice something is wrong as soon as things are amiss. If you’re away for an extended period of time, you run the risk of having what may have been a small problem turn into a much larger one.

This is where having a home watch service can come in handy.

Home what?

A home watch service (aka house watch, home concierge, home check, property watch and/or absentee home service) will help monitor a home in your absence. They will perform regular inspections of your household to make sure that mail is collected, your plants stay watered and that everything in your home is in working order. If they notice that something seems off with your HVAC or central AC unit, or that there may be a problem with your swimming pool, they’ll alert you right away, so you can work to have the problem repaired.

They’ll also keep an eye out for water damage, leaks, mold, bugs and other types of pests. When you hire a home watch service, you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that someone is looking after your vacation home when you’re not around to do the job yourself.

Other services provided

Some home watch companies also provide light concierge services, such as making sure someone is at the home to receive a furniture or appliance delivery, arranging to meet sub-contractors at your home and light grocery shopping. The latter is ideal when homeowners will be arriving late, because they’ll have some food in the refrigerator when they arrive. If your vehicle engines need to be started periodically, or you want someone on the ground to make sure your home is prepared in advance of a hurricane, a home watch service can help with this, too.
