IT's YOUR HOME - CELEBRATE HOME ISSUE
Community Living Magazines in Tampa Bay, Florida.
www.ItsYourHomeTrinity.com 13 AsktheSeal.com is a new locally based website where consumers can ﬁnd companies with the Seal of Approval. The Seal of Approval veriﬁes a company’s license, insurance and customer service record. It also performs criminal and sex offender checks on company owners as well as employees who interact with the public or their personal information. Many companies falsely claim to be licensed and insured. If an employee of one these companies gets hurt or property is damaged, homeowners insurance may deny the claim leaving the homeowner liable. Popular community feedback sites do not check license, insurance and criminal records which can give you a false sense of security. Unscrupulous companies and individuals have already learned how to game the community ratings sites by having family and friends sign up and enter postings about what a great company they are and how terrible their competitors are. Many companies claim to background check their employees. According to AsktheSeal.com founder, Ed Marchiselli, “less than 25% actually do. Of the few that actually perform criminal checks, many are incorrect or incomplete. The very small percentage of companies who perform proper checks only do it once, at time of hire.” AsktheSeal.com does it right every time and they repeat the checks every year. Companies with the Seal of Approval can initiate an email (called SEAL-MAIL) from AsktheSeal.com. It includes a photo and veriﬁcation of background check of the employee coming to your home or business so you know who you are opening your door for. The employee will also have a photo ID issued by AsktheSeal.com verifying their annual criminal background check. Businesses & consumers can get more information about this service at www.AsktheSeal.com or call 800-410-SEAL (7325). Because a company is not listed on www.AsktheSeal.com, it does not mean it is not a reputable company. Companies do have to pay a fee to be listed and must agree to background checks and proper licensing and documentation.
