3 Reasons You Should Choose Home Watch Services

Updated: Apr 17, 2021

Just imagine what can go wrong when you leave your home unattended. Many people make the inaccurate assumption that nothing can be amiss when you live in a gated community or a low-crime area.

But are you sure? And are you willing to take the risk?

You invest so much effort, time, and money into creating your ideal home or vacation house. Investing just a small fraction more into ensuring your home is safe and well-cared for in your absence just makes sense.

So, let's explore the top reasons you need to hire home watch services in Marco Island.

3 Reasons To Invest in Home Watch Services

1. Vandalism and Burglary

It is one of the major threats to unattended houses, as criminals are well-versed in recognizing the signs of a vacant and unprotected home and the opportunity that provides them. These crimes can occur quickly and in stealth, often going unnoticed until your return week to months later. Even a gated community cannot guarantee that there will be no theft or vandalism. It could be anyone who you may not suspect that may have easy access to your home, such as a contractor working in your general vicinity or even on your property. But you can easily ensure your unattended home's safety even when you are away by hiring home watch services.

2. Water Leaks

There are so many ways in which water can get into your home, with the potential to cause significant damage very quickly. This can be due to leaking HVAC lines, roof leaks, broken pipes, flooding, etc. Or your property may be located in a multi-level location, and the property above yours could leak down to your home, causing unforeseen damage. Just imagine if the HVAC system froze while your home was unattended - drain lines could start to drip on the floor, causing extensive damage to your property, particularly if continued unbeknownst to you for days or weeks on end. You could return to a money pit of mold and damage. With regular and thorough visits to your property, you can ensure the safety of all the equipment on your property. And you can rest assured that such unforeseen incidents will be promptly identified and remedies before causing significant headaches.

3. Climatic Wear and Tear

Climatic reasons like high humidity and frequent storms can damage your property. Excessive UV rays can cause rapid roof damage and leakiness. If you’ve been a homeowner for long, you know that there are sundry elements of your home that can go awry, particularly at the most inopportune times. You might have noticed a slight musty smell when you return from your vacation to your own home. Imagine that you are away for weeks and multiply that smell, with mildew, mold, etc., building up at your residence. The slow decline or damage to your property due to these climatic effects can significantly raise repair and upkeep expenses. Recall the saying, ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’ Take the preventive route by trusting a trained individual to monitor your vacant home on a regular basis to avoid minimal damage over time evolving into vast costs.
