You’ve made a major investment in a vacation home in one of the most beautiful regions of Florida. Your plan may be to visit for a few weeks or even a couple months every year with the goal of maximizing your leisure time while you‘re here. Is this goal realistic? It is if you plan wisely.
By choosing Aloha Home Watch Services, LLC, your plan to return to a home in good order with no unexpected surprises has just increased. Experience has taught us that even unoccupied homes still need to be regularly watched. Unexpected things do happen!
Having a home watch company visually inspecting your home or property, for obvious issues prevents those small problems that arise in your absence from becoming bigger problems requiring more difficult and expensive resolutions when you return. Who wants to deal with home problems when they return? Besides, do you even know who you would call for help? Let us take these concerns off your mind. With our regularly scheduled visits, we can help your home receive the attention it deserves.
HOW CAN WE HELP PROTECT YOUR HOME AND RESOLVE ISSUES THAT COULD ARISE WHILE YOU'RE AWAY?
Storm and Wind Damage The severity of Florida storms can be very unpredictable. Better to know immediately if your home has experienced storm damage than being surprised months later when undetected damage has led to even bigger problems. Home watch services take the guesswork out of the condition of your home after stormy weather.
Insect and Pest Infestations Reporting on the observation of pests can prevent you from experiencing an overrun of insects and possible damage by pests making “their home” in your home or attic. (See tips for preventing rats in your attic on our blog page.)
Vandalism or Forced Entry Removing papers, fliers and other throwaways gives your home the appearance that it is occupied. Maintaining a “lived in” look helps your home not stand out to potential thieves. In the event that a break-in were to occur, a quick response would ensure your home is secured immediately and may increase the chance of finding the intruders. Having someone respond to an alarm at your home is crucial to maintaining the security of your property.
Appliance Failures Leaking hot water tanks, malfunctioning dehumidistats and broken A/C units are problems that can be quickly identified and resolved before causing more expensive damage when left unnoticed for weeks or months. Air conditioners can break down allowing humidity levels to rise, increasing the chance for mold and mildew growth. A clogged A/C drain can inhibit condensation water from reaching the outside drain causing it to backup and leak from the unit inside the home. Imagine that surprise you when you arrive months later if your home is not monitored. We can also help extend the life of your dishwasher by regularly (monthly) operating the rinse cycle to avoid damage to the rubber seals preventing costly repairs or replacement.
Monitoring of Maintenance Services Do you know if the regular home maintenance services you have contracted, such as lawn and pool care, are being done HOW YOU WANTED and WHEN YOU WANTED? We can visually observe that regularly scheduled work is being completed and be on site to document (sending pictures) the progress of home maintenance projects.
Servicemen Working on Your Home We can be at your home to meet and provide entry to servicemen and ensure the safety and security of your property when workers are performing services inside your home.
At Aloha Home Watch Services, LLC, we like to say that hiring a home watch company to watch your home is such a small price to pay to gain so much peace of mind.
