Home Watch Inspection

Home Watch

While you’re away for the summer or cannot be there to monitor your home or investment property, let Bill’s provide you with peace of mind knowing that your property is safe and healthy. Each year, thousands of homes across Southern Arizona fall victim to burglaries, moisture damage, irrigation failure, appliance failure, and pest infestations. When you’re home, these problems can be caught and addressed quickly, but if you’re away for an extended period of time, these problems may go on and on without your knowledge. The experienced and trained inspectors will schedule regular inspections of your property and structure to ensure you know exactly what’s going on with your home while you’re away.

Why use a Home Watch service:

  1. Moisture damage – Every year serious damage occurs to homes due to roof, plumbing and irrigation leaks. Prevention and early detection are the keys to minimizing the costs involved.
  2. Appliances – It’s important to run and maintain your appliances throughout the year to ensure they are and remain in proper working order. Non-use can lead to many issues that often involve repairs or replacement.
  3. Pest Issues – Due to the extreme heat and rains, summer is when pressure from our desert pests is at its highest. It’s important to identify and eliminate any pest problems early before they become costly and serious infestations.
