PROTECT YOUR FAMILY
What to ask before hiring a service worker
Ask questions about the worker or workers the company you hire will be sending into your home. Don't assume just because they are a reputable company that they do criminal background checks on all of their workers. Some companies even subcontract the work out and they don't even know who will be in your home. Most importantly if the company refuses to answer your questions or are very vague in their answers, then you might want to consider another company. If they tell you they do a national background check, ask if that is all they do. There really isn't such a thing as one all encompassing background check, so don't be fooled when someone tells you they only do national background checks. Find a company that does comprehensive screening that includes county searches too. And most importantly, "bonded and insured" is not a criminal background check, it is merely protecting the business owner if their employee steels something from your home!
