Home Watch Services

Security systems and cameras can alert you to unauthorized access while you are away, DHGS alerts you to so much more.  We thoroughly walk through the exterior and interior of your home looking for signs of obvious issues, such as unusual sounds and smells, storm damage, mold, leaks, infestation, vandalism, squatters and improper functionality of equipment, devices and appliances.
