For seasonal residents of Boca Raton, or those using their second home only occasionally when on business or holiday, having a home management service is advantageous in so many ways. Not only for the security that comes with having your property monitored and checked weekly by a professional team, but for the additional services of having your home checked for weather damage, pest infestation, pool or spa maintenance and landscape management. Knowing your asset is in the hands of a professional team, dedicated to protecting your investment, can bring enormous peace of mind.

A typical home inspection starts with your mailbox being emptied, after which the inspection specialist will don protective footwear, before entering your home. They will check the locks and handles of your door, as well as the security system, to ensure everything is in good working order. The interior inspection of the home starts with a walk around the walls, from floor to ceiling, checking for condensation or mould, or any signs of insect infestation. Light fittings must be secure, with all light bulbs working. Smoke detectors and AC vents are monitored, while windows and other doors are checked for security. In the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms, all water sources are checked for leaks, to make sure none have developed, or any mould started to grow. The fridge is inspected, to make sure there are no nasty surprises and thermostats are reviewed to ensure they are on the correct setting. Phone dial tones are verified, as well as the circuit breaker, to see if there have been any electricity trips. If there is a car in the garage, the inspector will check for flat tires. Outside, the pool or spa and all equipment is seen to be in good working order, with the landscaping and irrigation system monitored as well. An exterior check of the walls and windows for any weather damage or pesky bird or rodent activity ensures your home is in tip top condition at all times.
