Terms Of Service

By using this website to book service you agree to comply to be bound by these terms & conditions if you do not agree to these terms & conditions you should exit from it now.

Booking Confirmation
Booking service online doesn’t guarantee you a spot for that date/time, you will be contacted by email or phone with a confirmation.

Teams
We always work in teams of 2, occasionally more cleaners may be needed due to the complexity of work or busy schedule, we do our best to limit rotation of cleaners in your home while still providing sufficient cross-training to our cleaning technicians. Our employees have been rigorously background screened & drug tested prior to work with us, you can rest assured all our staff has integrity and is held accountable.

Right to Refuse Service
We reserve the right to deny &/or terminate service because of safety concerns, inappropriate or uncomfortable situations, weapons on premises, severe clutter & disconnected utilities.
Our employees have the choice to leave if the home is in extremely unsanitary condition or they feel unsafe/threatened. If you book a cleaning online that is unreasonable, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot & you will be charged the cancellation fee.

Cleaning Day Preparation
Your price for cleaning is based on the maids focusing all of their time on cleaning, we ask that you take a few minutes to tidy up to allow the maids easy access to the areas/surfaces to be cleaned: floors, counter-tops, table tops, removing dirty dishes from kitchen sinks etc. If you’d like our maids to do these tasks for you, call the office in advance so your cleaning fee can be adjusted for the additional time.

Service Fees
Please remember we give these instant prices based on years of experience, but we may adjust the price based on the actual condition of the house. To ensure there are no surprises when we arrive & find that the job will require extra time we’ll call you to let you know if we are unable to reach you, the crew will have to leave & you will be charged the cancellation fee.
