By hiring a home watch company in Palm Beach Gardens for your vacation home, you eliminate the stress of owning more than one property. Say goodbye to emergencies in the middle of the night, onerous searches for competent contractors, and sleepless nights fretting about the house being unoccupied.

The Vulnerability of a Vacant Home

The longer your vacation home is uninhabited, the greater the risk of major damage caused by crime, weather, pest infestations, or fire.

Signing up for a professional home watch service safeguards your property – thereby also protecting your investment.

Crime

Having licensed, bonded, and fully insured specialists conduct weekly inspections of your property ensures that you always enjoy peace of mind. A thorough check of your home includes:

  • Looking for broken windows and other security breaches.
  • Examining doors and windows for signs of intrusion.
  • Removing mail, flyers, packages etc. from your mailbox.
  • Testing your home security system.
  • Checking for telephone dial tone, and more.

Weather

The weekly inspections also check the exterior and interior of your home for any maintenance related tasks caused by weather, such as:

  • Apparent landscape issues.
  • Dirty or murky pool and spa concerns.
  • Unfamiliar noises coming from pool equipment.
  • Perished fences, and more.

Furthermore, because Florida has the highest frequency of tornadoes/ 10,000 miles2 of all states, hurricane preparation policies identify potential risks and initiate precautions to protect your property.

Pests

Considering that Florida is the worst state for insect problems, home watch inspectors are sure to check for any signs of infestation by pests like cockroaches, termites, and rodents. If necessary, pest control measures are arranged.

Fire

Faulty electrical systems and failed appliances can lead to fire and devastating damage. Because visual inspections done by a professional home watch company include checking for tripped breakers, identifying loud noises coming from A/C units, etc., these issues can be addressed before further damage occurs.
