As part of the ongoing maintenance, pools are evaluated and maintained for safety.
Unmaintained pools not only turn off buyers, they are dangerous and raise serious liability concerns.. If a pool has a fence, the gate is padlocked to assure that only those with a proper key can gain access. If a fence is missing or broken, the contractor will report the condition immediately and Safeguard will seek instructions from the client on how to proceed. Generally, for above-ground pools bids will be submitted to drain and remove the pool. For in-ground pools, we will bid to place a secure covering over the pool.
At the request of clients, we will clean and maintain pools that are considered to be a selling feature for the home. Well maintained pools can add value to a property. Safeguard offers services for the initial clean-up that includes power washing the pool and refilling it with fresh water. We also work with local pool companies to keep pools clean and chemically balanced on a regular basis to appeal to prospective homebuyers.
