FAQs

FAQ 1: What is Home Watch?

The National Home Watch Association defines Home Watch as “A visual inspection of a home or property, looking for obvious issues.” It is a service provided to inspect your property while you are away, look for potential problems, and report back to the property owner in order to prevent or mitigate issues and provide peace of mind.

FAQ 2: Is Home Watch a security service?

No, although many people mistake it as such. However, Home Watch can provide a visible presence in your home to help thwart any criminal activity. Your Home Watch professional can also be in communication with local law enforcement and emergency services, should the need arise or an alarm be triggered.

FAQ 3: Do I need a Home Watch service?

Yes. As you know from experience, anything can happen to your home at any time. The HVAC system could go down and create overly cold or too hot conditions, an electrical problem may occur and potentially spark a fire, storms might wreak damage, or thieves could break in when they know you’re away. A Home Watch professional looks for potential or current issues, performs preventive and proactive measures, like in the event of an oncoming storm, and can help with regular maintenance that may help prevent unpleasant situations.

Many insurance policies state a vacant home must be checked within every 10 days or a claim can be denied.

FAQ 4: What if the Home Watch professional finds an issue?

Key To Key Home Watch has the experience and judgment to take care of just about any situation. If there is an emergency, we will handle it in the fastest and safest way, keeping in mind cost-effectiveness. For a non-emergency issue, you will be contacted to decide on the appropriate course of action.

FAQ 5: Should I check for any kind of accreditation or certification with my Home Watch professional?

Yes. Not every company that claims to be a Home Watch company is a member of an accredited association, and many of them may not qualify to be a member, since there are strict Code of Ethics requirements and standards to be followed. For your peace of mind, rely on a member who has went through the necessary steps.This ensures the company is insured, bonded and has had a back ground check.
