Why you need Home Watching Services
Our clients who were fortunate enough not to have had a problem leaving their home unmonitored, ultimately realized that they were leaving one of their greatest assets unprotected. With the belief that their homes should have the same safeguards as any other major investment, they hiredSnowbird Caretaker Services to be that protection, and ultimately achieved total peace of mind. Returning home after a lengthy absence and hoping nothing has happened is a risk, and one you should not take.
Prior to employing Snowbird Caretaker Services to watch their homes, many of our current clients told of major catastrophes that occurred when they left their home unattended for an extended period of time. Some of the problems and outright disasters that they encountered were:
- Air conditioning systems that broke down during the course of the summer, resulting in thousands of dollars in mold and mildew damage and remediation
- An air conditioning drain line that became clogged, pouring gallons of water into the home every day for an entire summer
- A burst water heater that flooded a home
- Roof leaks that went unchecked causing major damage
- Pest infestations
What’s worse, at least one of our client’s damages were not covered by their homeowner’s insurance, due to the fact that their insurance policy required that the home be monitored if left unattended for any lengthy period of time.This resulted in thousands of dollars of out of pocket expenses to repair the resulting damage to make their home habitable again. All insurance policies are different. Check with your agent and read your policy to ascertain if your policy has the same requirements.
Your investment in Snowbird Caretaker Services will pay for itself. Regular inspections can save you money by:
- Ensuring that your air conditioning is properly set; too high and you have a large power bill, too low and you have mold and mildew issues to contend with
- Ensuring security systems are operational preventing unwanted intruders (we are available for emergencies 24/7)
- Ensuring contracted services (pool, lawn, pest control) are doing their jobs, lessening any problems before they become a major issue
- Monitoring your vehicles for full operational status, lessening expensive repairs upon your return
