Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Home Watch service?
    A Home Watch service is designed to give you peace of mind while you are away from your home. The official definition of Home Watch is “a visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.” Your home is being inspected by professionals looking for potential problems. We’ll customize a checklist based on your individual needs and concerns. If a situation does arise, you will be notified so the problem can be dealt with in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
  • What services does a Home Watch company offer?
    Each company offers a different mix of services. We offer a variety of services to keep your home safe while you’re away. Check out our complete list of services. Don’t see what you need? We customize our services based on your needs. Get in touch with us! We also offer concierge services to make things even easier for you.
  • Why do I need a Home Watch service?
    So many things can happen to your home in your absence: break-ins, water leaks, electrical problems, insects, mold, and storms, you get the picture. Preventive measures such as storm preparation and proactive maintenance should prevent many situations from arising. Having a neighbor or relative nearby works for some but not all situations. An experienced professional acting on your behalf who knows how to handle any situation quickly and efficiently can not only save you money but also prevent strained relationships.
  • Do you provide care for animals?
    We do not provide care for pets. A home watch professional is not a house sitter or a pet sitter. Please note, we do not stay in your house, and do not take responsibility for the care of your pets.
  • Is a Home Watch service a security service?
    Security companies install and monitor a home’s alarm system, and notify you when the alarm goes off. That’s not what we do. We are the people you call after your alarm goes off. We will get to your home quickly to assess any immediate needs and secure your home once again. Additionally, having a visible presence in your empty home may act as a deterrent against vandalism and squatters.
  • What’s the difference between a Home Watch Service and a Home Inspection?
    A home inspector provides a one time detailed report of the major structure, systems and components of a home and then provides recommendations. A home watch service is a daily or weekly visual inspection looking for obvious issues.
  • How does a Home Watch company qualify to become an Accredited Member of the National Home Watch Association?
    Not all companies qualify for membership in the National Home Watch Association. Members have been carefully screened, references checked, and insurance, bonding and licenses (if applicable) have been verified. Members agree to abide by our Code of Ethics and Best Practices. Membership in the NHWA can be verified by visiting the NHWA Accredited Member Locations Page.
  • Do you provide hurricane services?
    Storms - especially hurricanes - can be stressful, particularly when you’re hundreds of miles away and can’t get home. Contact us about our pre and post storm services to help keep your home secure and ease your mind. We’ll customize a storm plan with you before you leave, and House Check Guys will start preparations when a major storm has been forecast.
