Unlicensed Activity

Hurricane Irma’s path caused destruction across the state of Florida and the cost for homeowners is still piling up. While disasters can bring a community together they can also bring out the worst in people trying to profit off of tragedy.

The Florida Swimming Pool Association wants homeowners to be aware of unlicensed contractors during this recovery time. Unlicensed activity is a criminal offense and often scams the homeowner, creating more cost for the homeowner. You can verify a contractor’s license at www.myfloridalicense.com

Homeowners can also use the Find a Pool Prosm directory search at www.floridapoolpro.com where they can enter their zip code to find service professionals and contractors in their area.
