You want to know your house is in good hands and that you’ll come home to a place that’s clean, comfortable and in great shape. That’s why we created the Home Watch program.

Neighbors say they'll keep an eye on the house, family plans to drop by a couple times over the winter and some of the utilities are off, but leaving home for an extended period of time is still stressful. What if a pipe breaks? Or the roof starts leaking?

To ease that stress, TruBlue Total House Care has developed a new Home Watch program. As part of Home Watch, clients can have a TruBlue technician conduct a weekly or bi-weekly interior and exterior check-up of the property.

“You can stop your mail and ask your neighbor to keep an eye on your house, but that doesn’t mean your home is safe. Getting an emergency house call while you’re on vacation or when you’re staying at a summer or winter home is terrible, but coming home to a serious home disaster is much worse. You want to know your house is in good hands and that you’ll come home to a place that’s clean, comfortable and in great shape. That’s why we created the Home Watch program,” TruBlue President Greg Platz said.

With Home Watch, a TruBlue technician will bring in any newspapers or mail left out, adjust window shades and lights, check for any plumbing leaks or problems, flush toilets and run faucets, make sure pool maintenance has been consistent and thorough, and even run vehicle engines. Finally, with Home Watch, TruBlue can get the house ready for return by setting up a house cleaning, adjusting the thermostat and even stocking the refrigerator by request.

“We’ve put together a comprehensive list of Home Watch and TruBlue services, but if there’s something else you’d like us to do or a project you’d like us to oversee while you’re away, talk to your local TruBlue Total House Care team,” Platz said.

Platz added that the Home Watch program was built based on the services TruBlue Total House Care of Jacksonville Beaches has been providing for years. John Waldrop, the co-owner of that franchise, said his company has been offering customized and affordable Home Watch services for clients – whether they need it for a week or a season – since the beginning and that it has been successful.

“Home Watch is a popular program here in Jacksonville Beaches because it really does ease the stress of being away from your home. Even homes with smart programs or security systems are at risk for unexpected maintenance issues we can catch with a simple walk-through inspection,” Waldrop said.

Outside of Home Watch, TruBlue specializes in providing handyman services, maid and cleaning services, lawn care, emergency repairs, seasonal projects, a senior accessibility program and more. TruBlue also partners with home owners and realtors to get homes ready to sell, prepare new homes for move in and complete home inspection punch lists. By having a single source like TruBlue handle these tasks, home and business owners can save time on property maintenance and spend more time doing the things they love.

TruBlue Total House Care, which was founded in 2011 in Cincinnati, was recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as the 15th fastest growing franchise in the nation. TruBlue Total House Care is part of the Strategic Franchising Systems family, which also includes, Caring Transitions, Fresh Coat Painters, The Growth Coach and Pet Wants.
