What is a Home Watch Service?

A home watch service is exactly what it says – it is when experts keep an eye on your home and take care of its general maintenance when you are unable to. A home watch service provider will ensure enhanced security first and foremost. Aside from conducting routine inspections, it should also respond quickly to any security system alarms – day or night, throughout the year. However, a home watch service is about more than just ensuring the protection of your home. It is also about ensuring that your home remains in tip-top condition.

What Does A Home Watch Service Include?

A home watch service should include the following:

  • General routine inspections,
  • Monitoring your home for pest problems and dealing with them if and when they arise,
  • Monitoring for any weather and/or water damage and conducting repairs if necessary,
  • Ensuring proper upkeep of the heating & air conditioning system,
  • Keeping an eye on the functionality of the electrical system,
  • Keeping an eye on the functionality of the plumbing system, and
  • Pool and landscape maintenance.

If there is a warning about any severe weather, your home watch service provider should also take it upon themselves to ensure proper preparations to protect your home and to keep damage to a minimum.
