Cleaning Services

 

Clean and Tidy SD provides professional, residential and other cleaning services.

When scheduling online, you will be prompted to provide your contact information as well as selecting a specific cleaning service. We will also need to know the size of the premises to be cleaned as well as number of bathrooms and perhaps other items. Keep in mind that all bookings will always have a two (1-2) hour arrival window due to unexpected delays or force majeure events. Rate increases or changes will be posted on our website and/or customers will be notified via email. 

 

Scheduling and Confirmation

Confirmation

When booking a cleaning service online, you understand that it does not automatically guarantee a customer an appointment for that day and time. When booking, scheduling conflicts may occur. One of our representatives will contact you by email or by phone with a confirmation for your appointment. 

In order for our Company to keep prices low and avoid trip fees, we schedule our cleanings in an order that requires the least amount of driving time. If you need a specific time, we will do our best to meet your needs, but we cannot make any guarantees. 

The Customer is expected to be on premises at the time of our representative’s arrival unless previous arrangements have been made with a security code and key.  

Appointment Window

Our Company permits a one to two-hour arrival window due to unforeseen events (i.e. traffic; weather; etc) for each scheduled cleaning. If for some reason our representative is running behind schedule, our Company will notify you via phone call or text. 

Payment

Payment for services can be made via credit or debit card through the Client portal located on the website or via phone call. Our Company accepts all major credit and debit cards. We reserve the right to collect and retain your credit/debit card information for payment of cleaning services rendered. You understand that your card will not be charged until after the scheduled cleaning has been performed. 

Payment Options and Discounts

We offer different cleaning payment options depending upon the frequency. Customers may schedule weekly, bi-weekly and/or monthly cleaning services unless otherwise discussed. Please specify the plan selected through our Booking Portal.  Additional services are available through the Website Portal or you can call or email us for a custom quote. 

Customers who enroll in weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly cleaning services will be billed on a regular basis and you authorize our Company to charge your credit or debit card on file. You will be charged only after the schedule cleaning has been provided. 

Financial Responsibility. You understand and agree to be personally and financially responsible for any and all outstanding costs and fees for cleaning services as provided by our Company and within this Agreement. This includes and is not limited to collection costs; attorneys fees; and legal costs; for unpaid amounts on account.

 

Refunds

We do not offer refunds since we have established our business on providing our customers with the highest quality service possible. However, mistakes happen and are acceptable. If you are unhappy with your completed scheduled cleaning, please call or email us within 24 hours of the event and we will correct the error at no additional charge to you.

 

Right to Refuse Service

Our Company reserves the right to refuse or discontinue service at any time and for any reason to protect our Company, subcontractors, and agents.  Our policies prevent our representatives and agents to work on premises where there are weapons; extreme clutter; disconnected utilities; or aggressive pets. 

 

Out of Reasonable House Cleaning Standards

You understand that our subcontractors and agents have the option to leave the premises if the area is in an exceedingly unclean state; if they feel intimidated, unsafe, or endangered.  If our subcontractor or agent cancels a scheduled cleaning due to any of the above reasons, you understand and agree that you will be charged a $100.00 cancellation fee in addition to your regularly scheduled cleaning fee. 

 

Cancellations

48 Hour Notice or more. We require a minimum of 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your cleaning appointment in order to avoid a cancellation fee.  Customers must either provide notice via email or by phone call.

48-24 hour notice will result in a $100.00 cancellation fee that will be charged to the Customer’s credit card on file. 

24-12 hour notice will result in 50% of the job to be charged as the Late Notice cancelation fee.

<12 hour notice will be a 100% of the job quote for Last Minute cancelation Fee.

 

Lockouts

If our Company’s representatives are unable to gain entrance to the property upon arrival for a scheduled cleaning; are turned away at the door; or refused entrance for a scheduled cleaning; without notice, then you understand that you will be charged a 100% cancellation fee which will be charged to your card on file. 

 

Security and Alarms

Access. By scheduling a cleaning service, you are granting our Company’s representatives and agents access to your home or premises to conduct a scheduled cleaning. 

Security Systems. If your home has a security system, please notify our Company in advance of the cleaning.  The system must be in the “off” position or in the alternative provide our company with instructions and code in order to operate the system and to provide service.  Please notify us immediately if the security code changes in order to prevent a lockout fee. 

Keys. Clean and Tidy SD is not responsible for any damages or theft to the client’s home if the client chooses to leave a door open or place a key under a mat or in any other unsecured location for the providers to get access.

Upon termination or cancellation of services, our Company shall return all customer keys in its possession within 48 hours or the next business day.

 

Utilizing the Customer’s Equipment

You understand and agree that we are not responsible for the equipment’s upkeep and maintenance. Therefore, we will not pay or reimburse a Customer for damaged or broken equipment. In addition, if the Customer’s equipment or vacuum is inoperable at the time of our representative’s arrival for a scheduled cleaning, they will be unable to vacuum your floors and carpets unless permitted to use their own equipment.

Inaccessible Locations & Heavy Objects
