TERMS OF SERVICE

By using this website to book service, you agree to comply with these terms of service. If you do not agree to these terms, do not book service with us.

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.

Cleaning Crew

We always work with individuals or teams of two. Occasionally more cleaners may be needed due to the complexity of work or busy schedule. We do our best to limit the rotation of cleaners in your home while still providing sufficient cross-training to our cleaning technicians.

Our employees and independent contractors have been rigorously background screened prior to working 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, excessive clutter & disconnected utilities.

Our employees and independent contractors have the choice to leave if the home is in an extremely unsanitary condition or they feel unsafe/threatened. If you book a cleaning type that does not correspond to the actual condition of the location for which the service has been requested, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot & you will be charged a $70 cancellation fee.

Cleaning Day Preparation

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

Our cleaners are instructed not to enter a house if they believe an animal is a threat, pets may behave differently if a family member is not present. If the removal of our cleaning technician is due to aggressive pets, our $70 cancellation fee will apply.

Service Fees

Our instant prices are based on years of experience. However, because we don’t do in-home estimates, your instant online price or phone consultation quote is based on the information you provide about the size and condition of your home. 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.

We reserve the right to reevaluate rates at any time based on the time it takes to perform our service to meet the client’s standards, Suds N Mops Cleaning Services will contact the client to discuss price or service revisions if the cleaning time differs drastically from the original bid.

Payments

Currently, we only accept debit or credit cards at the moment of booking. Your debit or credit card is not charged until the service is done. However, the day of the service, a hold is placed on your credit or debit card. If the payment form is declined when a hold is attempted the day of the service, your booking could be cancelled and a cancellation fee can be applicable. We can accept Zelle payments, but the service will be fully pre-charged before the date of the booking. Cash and Checks are not accepted.

Rate Increases
