House Sitting Services in Greater Toronto Area

Are you planning a vacation and need a professional house sitter to make regular checks to ensure your home is safe and secure? Do you need someone to water your garden in summer or make sure your furnace is running in winter? Whether you need us once a day or once a week, While Away Services provides house sitting throughout the GTA to meet your individual requirements.

Home Security Visits

Not only is an unattended home a prime target for burglars or vandals, but most household insurance policies offer only limited coverage if your home is not checked regularly While you are Away. Because serious loss or damage can be caused by undetected electrical, plumbing, heating or mechanical problems, our house sitting services are affordable insurance against unpleasant surprises.

On each home security visit, While Away Services will give your home a lived-in look and provide the following:

  • Collect flyers, newspapers and mail
  • Water plants
  • Adjust lights, drapes and blinds as requested
  • Inspect your home and premises thoroughly to meet your insurance requirements
  • Clear a path to your front door (when snow clearing has not already been arranged)

Additional services are available by request, including:

  • Clear snow from walkways and driveways
  • Lawn mowing
  • Water your garden
  • Pick up mail from a post office or P.O. Box
  • Forward your mail
  • Other services according to your personal needs

Vacant Property Care

Reliable home security and maintenance are essential when your home is vacant. While Away Services specializes in vacant property care and has house sitters located across Ontario to serve you. Our visits include the same services available for our regular home security visits (as listed above).

While Away Services specializes in:

  • Care for your property when you are absent for short or extended periods of time.
  • Care for estate properties requiring simple or comprehensive care during probate. We will liaise with real estate agents, lawyers, purchasers, vendors or other parties as required.
  • Care for a home that is on the market or awaiting closing.

Please call us for all of your Ontario vacant property needs. We will give your home a lived-in appearance, maintain the property and satisfy your insurance requirements.

Plant Care

Your plants are special and need regular attention. While Away Services tends to your indoor and outdoor plants with care, watering them and keeping them healthy according to your instructions. Please contact us for more details regarding plant care.
