We strive to become part of the family. Just pick up the phone and know, without a shadow of a doubt, we will take care of your needs.

What is Home Watch?

Home Watch is defined as “The visual inspection of a property, looking for obvious issues.”

Fact!
One small, overlooked problem can cost the homeowner thousands of dollars.

Our customers range from small condos to multimillion-dollar properties. Each home is unique in the service we provide. We can design a service that fits your specific requirements. Our prices are very reasonable for the service we provide.

We will provide you with a weekly, biweekly, or monthly, professional report depending on your choice of service. We use a home watch software that uses GPS to capture the time and date we visited. Or, if you prefer, we can just pick up the phone and give you a call, text, or email. No need to rely on your neighbor or brother Steve. They have their own life and might forget to check.

Properties in Florida are different from other parts of the country. Our heat and humidity can wreak havoc on your home. Rain can cause roof leaks which can bring about mold, mildew, and damage. Poor circulation and warm air can cause a white mold that can cover everything inside. We’ve seen it happen. 

Insect, termite, or rodent infestations, oh, the stories we can tell. Not good and scary. See pictures.

Here’s a new one, squatters. There’s been several reports here in Florida of people just moving into unoccupied homes destroying the property. Don’t think it couldn’t happen to you.

Let’s not forget about the big one, hurricane season. While living in and visiting Florida offers many benefits and advantages, it’s important to keep in mind severe weather hazards and potential threats. Hurricanes, tornados, and flooding is a huge stressor. Don’t wait until disaster strikes. Develop a plan. Act today.

Like we say here in Florida, pray for the best, and prepare for the worst. As we mentioned before, we have the experience to give you that peace of mind. We will do a pre and post-hurricane evaluation of your property. We will prepare your property by removing furniture, and potted plants, from balconies, patios, and around the pool area. If we can’t move it we can tie it down. Many condo associations require owners to remove items from balconies when a hurricane watch is issued. 

Remember, stress kills. Essential Home Watch Services is here to help eliminate some of that stress. So, it’s Essential that your home or condo is monitored in your absence. Again, the stories we can tell.
