JUST THE FAQ's about Sarasota / Bradenton Home Watch Services
A Home Watch service is designed to give you peace of mind while you are away from your home. Your home is inspected by professionals looking for any potential problems. Most companies will design a checklist based on your individual needs and concerns. If a situation does arise, you will be notified so the problem can be dealt with in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Actually, the question is, how can you not have one? So many things can happen to your home in your absence: break-ins, water leaks, electrical problems, insects, mold, and storms, to name a few. Conversely, preventive measures such as storm preparation and pro-active maintenance should prevent many situations from arising. Even if you have a trusted neighbor or relative nearby, having a professional acting on your behalf is a much better and more effective option.
Not as a rule; however, having a visible presence in your empty home may act as a crime deterrent. Most Home Watch companies answer alarm calls and are familiar to local law enforcement.
Each company is unique. Most offer a variety of services, such as lawn care, concierge, handyman - even pool services. If they don't provide it, they can certainly arrange for any service that you might need, using their knowledge of local contractors.
