Where are you going? Heading back up north for the summer or taking the kids on a trip out west for a month should have you considering how to properly protect your home while you are away. Lock it up and run, right? Wrong.
Without a doubt, spend some time not only planning your trip, but plan who will look after your home while you are away. Hire a professional Home Watch service to make sure the job is done right. Diane Pisani with Your Home Watch Professionals says "a vacant home is a vulnerable home", and we could not agree more. Diane can help you find a trustworthy professional to manage your unoccupied residence.
Not only will a home watch professional check to make sure your AC is running properly, they will also check all water sources for any signs of leaking, pool equipment, hot water heater, doors and windows, etc. A home watch professional will contact you if there are any problems so that you can mitigate any further damage. Insurance policies are becoming more restrictive and many now require that you turn off the water and drain all appliances when you will be away for an extended period of time for coverage to apply.
Don't leave your home to chance. Hire a trusted home watch professional to keep eyes on your home so that you can return home with peace of mind knowing that all is in good order.
