House Watching Services

During the off-season or whenever your home is unoccupied for an extended period of time, A Votre Service is here to provide house watching services. To put your mind at ease, we are available for you in all seasons and in any kind of weather. We will make every effort to ensure that your property stays secure and will take the necessary action required should we encounter a problem.

Savvy homeowners know it is important to consider having their home watched to prepare for the unexpected and bring peace of mind.

Why Use AVS House Watching Services?

Particularly during the winter months, the unexpected can include leaks, running out of oil, frozen pipes, boiler equipment issues, and unwelcomed pests or critters.

There are many other unforeseen scenarios that can lead to major problems. Our house watchers check both the interior and exterior and not only do they report any concerns immediately but they are also proactive as necessary.

We always remain in close communication with the homeowners and keep them informed of any issues or concerns. You can rest assured knowing that we will be your eyes and ears in your absence.

We suggest a minimum of a weekly visit. Following a big storm, power outage, or deep freeze, daily visits are automatic. Our Hamptons House Watching Service is available from Hampton Bays to Montauk.
