House Sitting Services Are A Worthwhile Investment

…. Annie comes with outstanding references over many years of service and can customize a plan to fit your needs.

Fairly common situations a Tucson house-sitting or home-watch service may encounter are unwanted critters in an undesirable space, a light left on, or perhaps a garage door being left open upon departure. Seemingly minor, but if left unaddressed, can become problematic. Having an experienced house sitter watch over your home in any absence can often prevent or drastically reduce expenses occurring from all kinds of unforeseen situations, such as fire, appliance and equipment failures, plumbing issues from burst pipes, swimming pools, water heaters, toilets, irrigation systems, broken windows from storm damage, dead car batteries, and at the very least, burglary. Having Annie from All About Services as your experienced and reliable house sitting service can’t prevent a break in, but it will certainly help deter.

Do you know most burglaries happen during the daylight hours when we are all at work? One incident can run approximately $1,600+ in property damage or loss, not including repair of locks, doors, windows, and other destruction. Home alarms are great, but a loud noise can be quieted simply by removing a battery. But, if you have someone house sitting for you and a potential burglar sees activity in your home, they are going to move on to seek an easier target.

So consider running off to cooler climates and wonderful destinations by hiring All About Services by Annie as your experienced and reliable house sitting service to keep watch. She’s licensed, insured and bonded to assure your peace of mind. Your absences will be handled discretely, your privacy respected, and your home cared for as if it was hers.
