Review by in Waterloo, IL
It's high time to complement Adam at the Vac Shack in Festus! I called yesterday asking if he could clean and check out our aging Dyson 14 vacuum cleaner. He said he could, that's he'd be open at 9:30 Wednesday -- he was and he did! He tore it down completely, replacing belts, cleaning everything, including a filter I frankly never saw before, and sent me out with an "all-up" machine. And as he promised, he did it while I waited to keep me from making two 96-mile round trips from Waterloo, IL. This is service in the best sense of the word! Thank you!

Evan was knowledgeable regarding the issues with our current central vac unit, and honest regarding our need for a new unit. He completed the work in a timely fashion and was professional and friendly.

Review by in Ballwin, MO
Evan fixed 2 of my outlets, had a carpet head to sell me to replace my broken one (YAY!) , macgyvered my existing hose with some electrical tape so that I may get a little more life out of it (Double YAY!) and checked out my base unit in garage to ensure all was in working order. Minor detail in retrospect- he was 15-20 min late. But once he arrived and fixed my repairs in a timely manner I was glad for the wait.

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.
