Home Watch in Palm Desert

You can trust Premier Residential Services to keep watch over your Palm Desert home while you’re away.

As the most experienced and largest home watch company in the area, we are able to dedicate time and attention to your property, so you can have complete peace of mind. Our services are backed by the sterling local reputation we have built over the course of 50 years serving California’s Coachella Valley.

Our staff includes more than 75 well-qualified and highly trained professionals who serve discerning homeowners like you every day. With our Palm Desert home watch service, a member of our staff will visit your home each week while you are away to conduct a complete 40-point interior and exterior inspection.

A Detailed Weekly Inspection of Your Home

We make sure your air conditioning (or heating) is operating, your lights are working, your landscaping is being cared for, and your pool is being maintained. Before we leave each week, we check that your security alarm system has a dial tone and is armed. If we discover any problems, we contact you and coordinate resolution. We are here to communicate with your existing service providers (such as pool and landscaping services), to recommend trusted vendors, or to fix the issue directly for you (in the case of handyman and cleaning services).

We check temperatures and humidity levels inside your home and make any necessary adjustments, so that your home’s interior is unaffected by the harsh climate. We look for plumbing leaks, clogged sprinkler heads, and damaged faucets. We watch for signs of insect or rodent activity, and we check for any unusual odors. We do all this once a week, and if we find anything that needs attention, we report it to you and have the problem addressed promptly.

Our Home Watch service also includes checking all major appliances, including your washer, dishwasher, water heater, refrigerator, freezer, and wine cooler. If you are away from your home longer than you anticipated, we check to see if food in your refrigerator or pantry has expired. If it has, we discard it.

During our weekly inspection, we check doors and windows from the inside and outside of the house to make sure they are secure.

The inspection checklist that is completed each week is kept on file in our offices and is available for your review upon request.

Emergency response: Should an emergency situation ever arise involving your Palm Desert home, including one related to an earthquake or severe storm, there is always a member of senior management available 24/7 to ensure you receive prompt service of the highest level.

Catch Minor Problems Before They Become Big Problems

When your home is vacant for extended periods of time, a minor problem can escalate into a major one by the time you return. For example:

  • A small leak in a pipe, triggered by a minor earthquake, can cause extensive water damage.
  • The power may go out briefly, and if your refrigerator compressor does not resume operation, your house can soon be affected by the stubborn odor of perishable foods.
  • Interior humidity levels can dip, causing wooden furniture, floors and picture frames to crack.

The Home Watch service from Premier Residential Services catches and addresses these and many other problems every day for Palm Desert homeowners. We fix the problems while they are small, to give you peace of mind and freedom from stress about your Coachella Valley home.
