When things are going well, you may not consider having a home watch service. But just one burglary or some other major damage to your vacation home will have you Googling home watch providers.

For decades homeowners have trusted Gardens Home Management Services for peace of mind that their unoccupied homes are safe. Isn’t it time you also took advantage of our professional home watch service?

A Vacant Home is a Vulnerable Home

Sadly, one of the top reasons to hire home watch professionals is to minimize criminal activity.

According to the National Home Watch Association, home watch services include “a visual inspection of a home or property, searching for obvious issues”. Your home watch service provider is also a line of contact between seasonal residents like you and your security company that offers peace of mind when you are away.

Additionally, your home watch company provides a layer of protection to your residence by reporting broken windows or fallen trees and establishing a presence by removing junk mail and flyers.

Faulty Electrical Systems and Failed Appliances

Following on from the point above, professional home watchers check your home’s electrical systems – including your home security system.

One sure way to depreciate your valuable asset is to let potential issues morph into serious damage. Prevention is always better than cure, which is why regular inspections are so important to look for:

  • Tripped breakers that can disrupt your refrigerator and other appliances. If found, look for water leaks and signs of mold.
  • Unusual noises coming from your air conditioner or HVAC system.
  • Correct settings for your thermostat and water heater.

Additional services our fully licensed, bonded, and insured team offer:

  • Checking for signs of rodents or insect infestation.
  • Turning off water at toilets.
  • Examining all shower heads and faucets for dripping, and ceilings for leaks or mildew.

Hurricane or Storm Damage

Prepare your home for natural disasters. We inspect your home inside and out as soon as a Hurricane Watch is issued, taking all appropriate measures to protect your home from as much storm damage as possible. After the hurricane, our services continue, with our contractors ready to repair any wind or water damage.
