Why You Should Consider a Professional Housesitter This Long Weekend

Thanksgiving Dinner - Houseguard Housesitters - House Sitters Winnipeg, ManitobaFor many of us, long weekends are a sacred right. They are a time to take that extra day to travel to the cottage, be out of town for a weekend of shopping and dining or maybe a family visit that is just a bit too far to get to on a regular weekend. We pack up the car, put extra food down for the pets and lock up the house.

Often, we don’t think about the idea of hiring a professional housesitter for such a short period of time. It is only 3 or 4 days so no need to have the house looked after. Yet, many things can go wrong when a house is left unchecked after only 24 hours.

Some tips to keep in mind when taking your long weekend break:

  • Incidents with plumbing don’t wait to happen when you are home. A burst hot water tank, for example, can be extremely damaging if not caught immediately. Hiring a professional housesitter ensures that if any serious issues arise while you are away they will be dealt with quickly and efficiently.
  • Pets should not be left alone for extended periods of time. Regardless of the type of pet, a housesitter can make certain your pets are looked after and kept safe.
  • Thieves do not just break into homes where the residents have taken long vacations and long weekends are prime times for burglars. A housesitter is your best protection against burglary and theft.
