Arrival Time: You will be provided with a two-hour window within which your cleaning service providers will arrive. This allows us to account for traffic, parking, and other surprises. We will do our best to provide you with an approximate arrival time, but appreciate your flexibility.

Missed Appointments and Lock Outs: If the service provider arrives at the scheduled service time and is unable to access your home through no fault of their own, you will be charged the full amount of your scheduled cleaning visit. Missed appointments may be rescheduled for an additional 15% fee. We will try contacting you in the event of a lock out and the service provider will wait up to 15 minutes after arriving before leaving.

Keys/Door Codes/Alarm Codes/Client’s Keys: Alarm codes are transmitted and stored securely online under SSL encryption. At the moment, we are not able to accept client keys.

Fees

Payment information will be requested at the time you schedule service with Service Provider. Your payment method will be preauthorized for the total amount estimated between 12:00 am and your appointment time on the date of service. Your payment method will be charged the final total, including tip, overage, and any additional fees, after services have been rendered.

Recurring Clients: If we are unable to charge your payment method on file before your scheduled service, we will notify you by phone and/or email. If we are unable to reach you or you are unable to provide a credit card for payment, we will proceed to clean your residence and you will be charged an additional $35 fee for late payment. Payment must be received for all previous services prior to the next scheduled cleaning. If you fail to bring your account current, your next scheduled cleaning will be put on hold and all past due balances will be assessed interest at 10% per month.

One-Time Customers: If we are unable to charge your payment method before your scheduled cleaning appointment, we will notify you by phone and/or email. If we are unable to reach you or you are unable to provide a credit card for payment, our cleaning team will not perform your scheduled cleaning service and you will be charged a $50 cancellation fee.

Cancellations and Rescheduling

If you need to cancel or reschedule your cleaning for any reason, please provide forty-eight (48) hours’ notice. You may cancel your advanced scheduled cleaning service without penalty up until 5:00pm EST the day before your scheduled service. Any cancellations received after 5:00pm EST the day before the scheduled service or the day of the scheduled service will be charged a $50 late fee.

Refunds

Satisfaction is guaranteed. If we cannot clean your home to your satisfaction, we will exercise discretion in refunding your service fees. If you accept a refund, we request that your refrain from posting negative review online or otherwise.

Satisfaction Guarantee

If you are not satisfied with your cleaning service, we will re-clean the areas you were dissatisfied with free of charge. You must report any problems or dissatisfaction with your service to support@baltimorehomecleaning.com within twenty-four (24 hours) of your appointment.

Re-cleaning services will be scheduled within two (2) business days of the initial cleaning service.

Additional Service Terms

Employee Safety: Our technicians and staff members are very important to us, and we are very serious about keeping them safe. They will not move anything heavier than thirty-five (35) pounds. These types of activities put our employees in danger of back injury or could even damage your flooring. If you would like us to clean behind appliances like a refrigerator, oven, or sofa, please move the item prior to the cleaning to allow access to the desired area. Additionally, our employees will not ascend higher than a two-step ladder to clean high areas.

Homes We Cannot Clean: We cannot clean a home or office with any kind of transferable pest infestation, including but not limited to fleas, bedbugs, and lice due to the risk to other clients and to our cleaners. Please give us advance notice if you know about an infestation so that we can reschedule your cleaning once the infestation is resolved. If we arrive to clean and discover any signs of an infestation, we will need to leave immediately and you will be charged the full amount of your cleaning.

Air Conditioning (in the Summer Months): Cleaning is a very physical job. During the hot summer months, please have your air conditioning turned on (as able) for the cleaning crew. We ask that clients allow us to turn air conditioning up (as needed) while cleaning crews are on-site. We will return the unit to its original temperature setting before we leave.

Cleaning with Client Cleaning Products: We bring all of our own cleaning supplies. Although, if you would like us to use your cleaning products, we can do so ONLY if the product(s) you are requesting we use are labeled NON-TOXIC. We are committed to protecting the health and welfare of our employees. Please do not ask any of our cleaning service providers to use a toxic cleaner.

Cleaning with Client Supplies: If you would prefer we use your personal supplies (i.e. vacuum, steam cleaner, mop, etc.), Baltimore Home Cleaning does not accept liability for any damage of personal equipment which client has authorized us to use in their home or office. If you wish to insure your personal property against damage, you should make your own arrangements to do so.

Pets: Most of our clients have pets. Please note: if your animal has a history of loud barking, growling, or biting, we ask that you place the animal in a secured area of your home or yard that we will not be cleaning. If you do not have a suitable area in your home, please make off-site arrangements for your pet. We respect our staff and do not want anyone to feel scared in your home.

Urine and Feces: We do not clean litter boxes or any urinated area. We do not vacuum up litter with our vacuums around litter boxes. If you have a handheld vacuum hung or placed near the litter box area, we will gladly use that to clean around a litter box for you. Please do not ask or expect any of our cleaning crews to clean up your pet’s urine or feces or other various pet “accidents.”

Tipping: Baltimore Home Cleaning does not require tipping, but it is a powerful way to say thank you to your service provider. If you would like to leave a tip for your cleaning crew, please try to leave cash. You can also tip the cleaners on our website. A personal note from you expressing your appreciation for their service can mean a great deal.
