Our Home Watch Services
There are many things that we check for in an unoccupied property. We have a checklist that we’ll use to assess both the interior and exterior of your home. The following are some of the items our checklist includes:
- Do weekly and bi-weekly checks.
- Accept deliveries on your behalf.
- Hold your keys and allow service and maintenance providers to access your property.
- Carry out pre and post-storm checks.
The following are areas that will normally be inspected during the weekly and bi-weekly checks:
Unless your home is a condo, we want to inspect the exterior to catch any problems that may arise while you away. That’s why we check:
- The condition of your home’s roof.
- Points of entry, such as doors and windows to ensure they are securely locked.
- Your sprinkler system to ensure the heads are working efficiently.
If we find a potential problem, we’ll bring it to your attention right away!
We also want to ensure that the interior of your home is protected. If we can spot the issue early then it can be dealt with before they cause too much damage. We like to check the following when inspecting the interior of your home:
- Electrical Systems: We will examine every circuit box, wiring, and outlet to ensure everything is running smoothly.
- Plumbing Systems: Our plumbing system inspection includes checking anywhere the water runs through your home. Including, tubs, toilets, sinks, and fixtures. In addition, we’ll also examine the floors and ceiling for potential signs of leaks.
- Environmental Systems: Here, we’ll primarily check your heating and air conditioning units. We’ll examine whether they are working as they should be.
- Security/Safety Systems: Besides ensuring your alarm system is working as it should, we’ll also inspect smoke detectors for issues.
- Mold Issues: Mold spread quickly, and it can lead to thousands of dollars in repair costs. We’ll look for potential signs and make you aware if something comes up.
- Pests: Our pest inspection includes searching for bugs and other creatures that may cause damage to your property’s structure.
Why Can’t My Neighbor Check in on My Home?
This is risky for many reasons, but mainly because may not have the proper training to know what exactly to look for when inspecting your home. So, if an issue was to arise, they may not be able to know how to resolve it the best way possible.
In addition, while they might stop by once in a while, they may not be able to carry out detailed interior and exterior inspections. Failing to catch small issues early on may result in very costly repairs.
Can My Security System Company Do the Same Thing?
No, an alarm company will only monitor your home or fire alarms. However, they won’t “watch” over your home for potential issues that can occur while you aren’t there. They won’t check for things such as mold, pests, squatters, or broken pipes.
A home watch company like Income Realty Home Watch will identify such problems and let you know when something needs attention.
