Review by in Northfield, OH
Gene is awesome. He’s thorough, professional and knowledgeable. Very responsive to my first inquiry. I plan to call him anytime I’m faced with a pest! Don’t hesitate to call him. I’ve used other services and Gene is the best so my search is over. He has great experience and is very well rounded.

Review by in Strongsville, OH
The owner is incredibly honest and gave me excellent advise and what to do around the property to keep issues on the outside. I will only phone Gene for any future issues. Very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what to look for moving forward.

Review by in Lyndhurst, OH
Tech, Gene, arrived actually prior to appointment time. Was friendly. Was informative, and efficient. This is an extremely distressing problem., and has to be handled Quickly as possible,properly and thoroughly. Unfortunately, this apparently will take some time, hopefully this company will complete follow-up as promised.

Review by in North Royalton, OH
I could have done what he sprayed by myself. He only sprayed the space on base of house (I thought he would have sprayed at least 2 feet up the house . What he did for the price amount of the job seemed high.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
