What is Home Watch?

Paradise Home Maintenance - Home Watch Security Services

Home Watch is known by many names: house watch, house check, home concierge, caretaker, absentee home service, property watch, and so on. Regardless of the name, a Home Watch service performs scheduled inspections of unoccupied or vacant properties while the owner is away. The National Home Watch Association describes Home Watch as “a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.

At Paradise Home Maintenance we look at the house, condominium, or property with a trained eye, making sure that everything is satisfactory. We look for leaks, pests and mold, all of which can be present in homes left alone for even the shortest interval. We check interiors and exteriors of properties, dependent upon service specifications provided for within the contract with the property owner.

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 proactive 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.

Should we find an issue or potential problem, we will immediately notify the homeowner. From there, the homeowner will instruct the us as to how they want to proceed. By removing junk mail and flyers and creating a presence in the home, our home watch service adds a level of security to any vacant home or property. By having this line of communication to the homeowner, Paradise Home Maintenance provides peace of mind during their absence.

At Paradise Home Maintenance, we offer weekly or twice a month inspections, while most of our competitors only offer monthly inspections. In our experience, too much can happen in thirty days. A minor leak can turn into major water damage, a small animal or pest intrusion can turn into a full-scale invasion, a broken or malfunctioning appliance can become a fire hazard. By choosing a professional home watch service provider like Paradise Home Maintenance you can be assured that your property will be cared for, maintained and protected while you are away.
