Things you should consider: if something happens at your home, how much time would you like a water leak to create havoc in your home before it is discovered? It doesn’t take long for a small leak to quickly soak an area rug or damage your cabinetry. A small amount of water can quickly produce a large amount of mold and mildew which is costly to clean up and repaid! The sooner they are discovered, the less the amount of damage.
One of our colleagues reported that one home, which had their water turned off during the homeowners’ absence, discovered a large amount of mold created by a faulty sprinkler watering one of the home’s windows. This then ran down the windowsill and saturated the carpet. When it was eventually discovered, there was mold everywhere.
So, our response is that we recommend weekly home visits and most of our clients follow that schedule. Some are happy with bi-weekly if you are willing to accept the risks!
Home visits range in duration from 15 minutes to over an hour depending on the services you have contracted and how frequently we are in your home. You will know we were in your home based on the time-stamp included on each computerized report sent to you–in fact, we welcome you checking your alarm system logs and/or security cameras to verify we were there. We show up! Optionally you can request your visit report be GPS stamped to show we were physically at your location.
