If it is as the independent worker you are going for, and then ask them to submit 2-3 references and check them personally to ensure their authenticity. And if you have chosen a store or company then you must find out if they have a license and insurances for their employees. Your job will be much easier if you look for their website for this information.

This is one service where the provider stays inside your home for long period of times so the person you are hiring to be present in your house must be reliable.
