    I was very pleased with M.L. Smith personnel and service. Very quick, kept me informed when they were coming, did a great job for a great price. They are my new permanent electricians!!

    We had a problem with dead outlets along one wall of our house. Rep was very helpful and quickly diagnosed a problem with the GFI in a bathroom outlet at the other side of the house! He reset the GFI as a courtesy and that was it! Thank you!

    Response from Company:

    Thank you so much for your comments! We are so happy we were able to assist you and diagnose the problem!

    Make sure the person sent to do the job is qualified and knows what they are doing.

    5.0 Christina F. Glenville, PA

    The gentlemen that completed the work were respectful, thorough and refreshingly nice and customer service oriented. The owner also stopped by my work site and it was clear why the customer service and work ethic is so good with this company. The workers also helped with some additional, non-electrical work. They were thorough in cleaning up after and organized all my extra wires and such and made sure I knew what was what and how to operate my new electrical gizmos. Their prices were true to their quotes and comparable or lower than competitors. I HIGHLY recommend ML Smith Electric. -Christina F., Columbia, MD

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
