Home Watch Eliminates Worry When You’re Away

November 3, 2021


Are you one of those people who can close up your home and eliminate worry when you’re away? It so, you’re likely in the minority. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve worried whether I locked all the doors, left the oven on, or unplugged an appliance…and that’s just an ordinary day when I’m out at work!

When you leave home for an extended period of time, there are even more things to worry about. And that’s why people call us. At Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge, we’ll check on those little worries to make sure you’ve turned off the lights and locked the windows. Just let us know if you think you’ve forgotten something.

Even better, we go through a complete checklist of items every time we check on your home. We look for things like whether your main systems are functioning properly—like your heating and cooling, or plumbing systems. In the summer, your AC may go out and your home could get uncomfortably hot and damp—creating mold and mildew issues. In the winter, a pipe could burst. If you’re not there to catch these things, disastrous and expensive results could occur. Our job is to eliminate that worry.

Eliminate Worry with a Home Watch Professional

Golden Rule Home Watch & Concierge is an accredited member of the National Home Watch Association which provides training and standards for home watch companies like ours. We’re also licensed, bonded and insured for your protection. And over the years, we’ve honed our home watch services to provide exceptional value for homeowners who don’t want to worry about their houses when you’re away.

Our services include:

  • A personalized internal and external inspection of your home with time, date and GPS reporting. You’ll receive a detailed report after every visit to your house.
  • Home systems management. Let us check your home systems, perform regular maintenance tasks like filter changes, or line up technicians to repair or service your systems. If you don’t have a regular serviceperson, we can recommend one from our vendor/contractor relationships.
  • Houseplant care, with regular watering and maintenance.
  • Mail & package management. Instead of leaving packages on the front porch open to thieves, let us pick up packages and store them or arrange for delivery to your location. We can arrange for package pickups as well.
  • Post storm assessment. You’re keeping an eye on the weather back home and worrying if a storm has hit your area. We’ll check your home following a storm to assess for any storm damage and can arrange for clearing of downed branches or roof or gutter repair if necessary.
  • Alarm responses. If any of your alarms are tripped, we can serve as your designated responder to check out the situation. We’ll arrange contact and access for first responders as needed.

No matter what service we provide, you are always kept in the loop. If we do happen to find an issue, you’ll be notified immediately, with photographic evidence and options for remediation. If you choose to have services done, we’ll arrange for the visit and stay with the service personnel to ensure your home’s safety and that the job is being done right. It’s another way to provide you with peace of mind.
