Exceptional Care for Your Home

Hi Tech – Our team utilizes portable, hand-held environmental sensor technology to validate the conditions of your home.  These include:

  • Temperature  – Should be high enough in winter to prevent frozen pipes and low enough in summer to avoid damage to household items.
  • Humidity  – A well functioning HVAC system may help to achieve an optimal level that avoids the growth of mold in summer.
  • Moisture/Water  – There should not be water outside the plumbing.

Hi Touch – A Golden Rule Home Watch team member visits your home weekly or bi-weekly to check everything on the exterior and interior to make sure that all is in order.   Using a custom checklist developed for your home, our team members visually check for any irregularities, issues, or problems.  Nothing replaces the hi-touch element of home watch…the eyes and ears of trained people.
