  1. Certified – A company that has certifications from companies such as Building Service Contractors Association International (BSCAI) and Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) demonstrate superior knowledge and training in the service contracting business. Look for a Green Seal certification to ensure an environmentally responsible company as well.
