Frequently Asked Questions

What is Home Watch?

Home Watch is a visual observation of a home or property, looking for obvious issues. A service offered to people who own multiple homes, it is popular in areas that have a large percentage of part-time residents like Florida with a heavy seasonal, and tourist, population. 

Coastal Winds Home Watch provides home watch services in the Fort Myers, Florida.

How frequently do you make a Home Watch Visit?

This depends upon each homeowners’ specific needs. Some people prefer more frequent visits than others.

Coastal Winds Home Watch offers visits:

  • Weekly (4-5 visits per month)
  • Bi-Weekly (2-3 visits per month)
  • More Frequently
What are some of the things you do on your Home Watch visit?

On each visit, we do the following:

  • Cycle the water, which includes brushing and flushing toilets, running water in sinks, tubs, and showers to ensure drain traps remain wet to prevent smells or drain flies.
  • Check for visible leaks.
  • Run the dishwasher and washing machine on a regular basis. 
  • Use a flashlight to look at ceilings, visible walls, and baseboards for signs of water or other damage. We are trained to identify irregularities and to catch a damaging situation in the early stages. 
  • Check humidity levels, and, if humidity is above 50%, we adjust the thermostat so the AC operates properly to draw humidity out of the air. This is especially critical in a tropical climate, like Southwest Florida.

Note: All procedures vary by climate, type of home, and equipment.

How do you handle a problem or damaging situation?

Every situation is unique, and we handle each situation with a tailored approach.

Coastal Winds Home Watch has vetted an extensive pool of licensed, insured and bonded trades people that can be scheduled quickly to remedy any situations in the home. 

We provide regularly scheduled visits and reports to our customers about how the property is doing, and how repairs are progressing. Each visit is paired with an app that uses a digital GPS reporting system, providing you with reports, photos, geo-location, and updates in real-time. 

If Coastal Winds does find an issue or potential problem, we immediately notify the homeowner, troubleshoot appropriately, and provide suggestions to remedy the situation. From there, the homeowner decides how to proceed, and our team will make that happen.
