If it is due to poor service quality we will provide 30 minutes of cleaning free of charge to compensate you, but if the customer has already fixed the problem themselves then this free 30 minutes will not be applied.

Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds.

All special cleaning requests must be communicated to our office before the arrival of the cleaning staff, this ensures that the request is safe for the employee and that the appropriate number of staff members and time are allocated to the service. Customers are not to provide their cleaning supplies unless a special arrangement has been made with Management. This ensures the safety of our employees.
DISHWASHERS AND LAUNDRY
The dishwasher will be loaded and run at the customer's request, as there are a variety of special items in everyone's homes that are not dishwasher friendly, these must be indicated as such beforehand by the customer or they will be at risk for being inappropriately processed in the dishwasher.
Laundry is the same - items that are inappropriate for the washing machine or the dryer must be labeled as such or the customer is at risk for having damage or destruction to their laundered items.
Both dishwashers and washing machines will only be run if there is enough time for the cleaner to witness that it had completed its cycle, this ensures that there is no malfunction or flooding.
Our staff members may take before and after photos as proof of work which will be included in our invoice and also to showcase before and after examples on our social media as a point of professional pride. These posts will be highly professional, will not indicate the client and will be very tasteful.
The personal information we collect will only be provided to the financial institution(s) that processes your payments or payment collections.
