The Background Check Certification for Clients means that you have passed a standard background check that ensured the following:
Please note that the time to process a background check varies by county, and can be anywhere from instant to 2 weeks.
This is if you received more positive reviews from Clients than negative ones over the prior 30 days.
This is if you complete most of the scheduled jobs with you over the last 30 days, and no more than 1 day of no shows over the prior 2 days.
Each service type has the ability to get a “Equipment Certification” which means you confirm you have the most common supplies that other Pros have for that service type. Basically, it’s a spot check that you can do to let Clients know you have the equipment To-Do the job.
For example, the minimum supplies you need to bring to a cleaning are:
Any supply that you and the Client agree to use can be used. So there is never a situation where you are not allowed to use something you and the Client want to use.
You are the professional, and can decide to use the products you want. "Certified" simply means that Clients generally are happy with the safety and "green" status of these products (although this cannot be guaranteed). But in general we have found that the EWG's rating to be a reasonable predictor of their happiness.
This person has a vacuum and mop, and all supplies are rated C or higher by the EWG.
This is an example of equipment that did not appear to be professional equipment for the job.
If you no longer satisfy any criteria for Certification, then you lose that certification. Clients who require that certification for booking will be automatically removed from your schedule.
