Terms and Conditions of Service

By booking online with Keep A Cleaning Company, you agree to comply with and be bound by the following terms & conditions of service. 

Booking, Confirmation and Appointment Details

Service Request: When you request our services, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions specified herein.

Confirmation: Booking a service does not guarantee an immediate spot. You will receive confirmation via email or phone call/text to confirm your appointment once finalized in our system.

Appointment Arrival Window: Cleaning appointment arrivals are scheduled for a certain time, however specific times are not guaranteed due to the nature of this business. We generally arrive no later than 30 minutes after the window start-time, with a reasonable arrival window allowance of 1-hour from the scheduled start time. While we strive to adhere to the schedule, slight delays might occur due to unforeseen circumstances. We will always reach out by phone or text if we are running behind schedule. 

Right to Refuse Service: We reserve the right to deny or terminate service in the event of inappropriate conduct, inaccessible or disconnected necessary utilities (electricity, running water), safety concerns, excessively cluttered or unsanitary beyond reasonable conditions, dangerous appurtenances present (weapons, live wires). Our cleaners may refuse service on the spot, and a cancellation fee will apply

Safety and Service Limitations: In order to ensure safe working conditions and appropriate boundaries for our cleaners:

  • We do not handle mold removal or areas containing bodily fluids or excretions
  • Our cleaners do not handle or lift in excess of 50 pounds - if you would like areas cleaned behind/under heavy furniture, please have it moved in time for your scheduled appointment
  • Our cleaners do not climb higher than a 6 foot step ladder and do not perform work outside the home
  • We are unable to service hoarding homes (this is a specialized service we do not provide)

Rescheduling and Cancellation Policy

Notice Period: A minimum of 24 hours' notice is required for cancellations or rescheduling to avoid a fee.

Payment and Pricing

Payment Timing and Methods: Payments must be made on the day of cleaning, at the conclusion of the service. Accepted methods of payment are E-transfer, check, or credit card.

Service Fees: While we provide instant prices based on our experience and information provided on the client booking form, prices may be adjusted based on the actual condition of the home. If the condition deviates significantly from what is represented on the booking form, we will contact you to discuss the adjustments. We reserve the right to re-evaluate service fees at any time; If we are unable to establish contact within 60 minutes of the scheduled start of the appointment window, the cancellation ($50) or rescheduling ($25) fee will be charged.

Refunds and Touch-ups: If you are dissatisfied with our service, please contact us within 24 hours of the job completion. We will address your concerns promptly, and come up with a solution via partial refund or re-clean/touchup, to reach a solution to the satisfaction of both parties. 

Rate Increases: Client rates may be adjusted based on changes in service frequency, home situation, or other factors. An annual increase of no more than 5% may be applied to recurring clients’ regular service. 

Customer Responsibilities

Access: Clients must ensure the cleaning team has access to the property at the scheduled time, with provision of keys/instructions to enter the home. If locked out, every effort will be made to contact you. Failure to grant access within 60 minutes of the scheduled appointment arrival time will result in a $50 late cancellation fee.

If your home has a security system, kindly provide the necessary codes and instructions for use during the cleaning.

Cleaning Preparation: We request that you pick up clutter and do some light tidying to allow our cleaners easy access to the areas/surfaces to be cleaned (floors, countertops, tables, shelves). If you prefer our cleaners to handle these tasks, please notify the office in advance for a fee adjustment.
