JACKSONVILLE, FL (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — It’s a rare house that doesn’t need help before it’s put up for sale or when a new owner moves in. Residents who had problems finding qualified contractors can now put their trust in a new organization called American Association of Service Contractors (AASC).

A man knocks on your door. He’s there to perform maintenance or service work inside your home. Sure, he’s got a company ID, but still, how do you know he’s safe? How do you know you’re not allowing a convicted sex offender or violent felon into your home and around your family? The truth is: you don’t.

“Every day, the news is filled with reports of violent crimes committed against the innocent and vulnerable by people contracted to work inside our homes and around our loved ones. Sure, the government passes stringent laws to protect us, but just how protected are you right now from that man standing in your doorway,” said AASC Founder Joe Palermo

The American Association of Service Contractors comes in. If that man is registered with the AASC he will have a valid photo ID from AASC indicating he is a member in good standing.

Adds Palermo, “AASC performs the industry’s most extensive and comprehensive background checks on all its members. If they’re cleared by us, you know we’ve checked to see if they have any criminal history involving fraud, violent crime or crimes of moral turpitude.”

“We also check to make sure they have a valid citizenship and valid driver’s license. We also make sure they have the local and state licenses necessary to perform the very work you’ve contracted them to do.”

AASC certification is 100% guaranteed by a $1,000,000,000 insurance policy.
