Accreditations & Certifications

We are licensed and certified in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Team members hold individual licenses and certifications in Massachusetts and other states. Make sure the company you hire has not only the Core license, but also has the Commercial Certification in the category of your service.
