Frequently Asked Questions

+What is a home watch service?

Home watch is an essential service consisting of regularly scheduled check-ups of both the interior and exterior of unoccupied homes and rental properties. HHHW offers a variety of services from home watch to project management and rental property oversight.

+Why not have a neighbor watch my home?

Neighbors are wonderful and typically free of charge. However, most of them do not have the necessary expertise to check your home. Often times, neighbors will pick up the mail and newspaper, maybe take a quick peek inside your home, and then watch your home from across the street. We are trained, insured, and bonded professionals that will provide you with a full report (including timestamped photographs) after each visit to provide you with peace of mind.

+How often do I need home watch services?

This is both a personal and insurance decision. For safety reasons, we believe every ten days is sufficient. Less frequent visits do not provide the level of security needed to ensure that our clients’ homes are properly taken care of while they’re away. However, some insurance companies require an insured and bonded person check an unoccupied home once or twice a month. Other insurance companies do not have this requirement. Please contact your insurance company to find out the specific requirements of your policy before making a decision on the frequency of visits.

+Can you visit my home after severe weather?

In addition to regular home watch visits, we offer add-ons such as storm services. We conduct a pre- and post-storm visit to our homes. These visits are conducted at a special rate and are designed to prepare the home for the storm and to ensure that there are no leaks or property damage after the storm.
