All clients (residential, commercial, Airbnb, post-construction):

 

All clients, regardless of type, should read and understand these Terms of Service. These apply and are legally binding to all our clients who book a service with us over the phone or through our website.

 

Services

 

Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC provides interior residential, Air BnB, and commercial cleaning services only for residential and commercial properties.

 

Both the client and Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC and our Independent Contractors and Employees are responsible for clear communication and being responsible with the clients’ belongings and property. All incidents big or small are to be reported immediately.

 

Booking Confirmations

 

Booking service online does not guarantee you a spot for that day/time. You will be contacted by email or phone with a confirmation.

 

Cleaning Crew

 

We always work with solo cleaners, occasionally more cleaners may be needed due to the complexity of work or busy schedules. We do our best to limit the rotation of cleaners in your home.

 

Client Satisfaction Guarantee

 

Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC guarantees client satisfaction. We charge a flat rate to perform our cleaning services. If we miss something included in your cleaning, we will come back to correct it for no extra charge if informed within 24 hours. This guarantee is for 72 hours – you must notify and allow us back into the location to correct within 72 hours of the original cleaning. In addition to that, in the case we arrive at your home and determine you require additional services not booked, such as a deep clean, we will communicate the required changes and costs upfront. If you do not agree to the additional charges, we will perform your booked services but cannot guarantee you a complete cleaning.

 

Right To Refuse Services

 

Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC reserves the right to deny or terminate service because of safety concerns, inappropriate or uncomfortable situations, weapons on premises, severe clutter, or disconnected utilities. Our employees have the choice to leave if the home is in an extremely unsanitary condition (i.e., mold, presence of blood, urine, feces, etc.) or they feel unsafe/threatened. If you book a cleaning that is unreasonable, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot, and you will be charged a cancellation fee.

 

Cleaning Day Preparation

 

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

 

Add-On Services

 

These services are available for an extra charge: Clean interior windows and sills, Detail blinds, Dishes, Clean inside kitchen cabinets, Clean inside oven, Clean inside fridge, Sweep garage, Clean patio.

 

Pets

 

We will gladly work around pets. We ask that indoor activity is limited for cleaning efficiency and safety reasons. If your pet becomes anxious or presents a safety concern, Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC reserves the right to remove its workers from your home. Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC contractors and employees 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 cleaner is due to aggressive pets, our cancellation policy will apply.

 

Service Fees

 

Please remember we give these instant prices based on years of experience, but we may adjust the price based on the actual condition of the house. To ensure there are no surprises when we arrive and find that the job will require extra time, we’ll call you to let you know. If we cannot reach you, the crew will have to leave, and 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. Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC will contact the client to discuss price or service revisions if the cleaning time differs drastically from the original bid.

 

Rate Increases

 

Client’s cleaning rate adjustments may be made at any time during the year should there be changes to the frequency of the client’s established service schedule or home or living situation: remodel, change of address, number of people living in the home, a significant addition of furniture, etc.

 

Lockouts

 

Client shall make the service location accessible to Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC personnel on the scheduled service day. If the team or individual is locked out of the client’s home, every effort will be made to establish contact with the client to arrange entry into the home. If contact is not made within 20 minutes of the arrival of the cleaning team, the scheduled cleaning will be skipped, and you will be charged a late cancellation fee. This fee is necessary to compensate for unexpected lost revenue and travel time. To avoid the fee, provide us with a key or code to gain entry to your home or office.

 

Recurring Service Discount

 

Recurring discounts begin AFTER the first cleaning service. If you skip cleanings so that your cleaning frequency is lower than what you were set up for, your price will be increased to the pricing level for the lower frequency.

 

Hourly Service

 

If you requested hourly service, have a prioritized list available. Our crew will begin at the top of the list and work their way down until time is up.

 

Recleans

 

All re-cleanings and refunds need to happen within 72 hours of the original service. We appreciate the chance to make things right with a re-cleaning before any refunds. Per our policy, we can’t issue any refunds without doing a re-cleaning first.

 

Recleans will be done to correct areas that were missed the first time.

 

In addition, we won’t be able to offer a refund or a re-cleaning if you try to hire our teams independently of Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC, are offensive or abusive to our teams, or didn’t have running water or power during the time of the initial cleaning.

 

Use of Homeowner’s Equipment

 

If you request to use your vacuum or other equipment, we will not assume or accept any liability for damage to the unit. Since we are not responsible for the maintenance of the equipment, we will not be responsible for any repairs to it. This is important because if the equipment is not in working order when we arrive to clean your home, we will not be able to perform any vacuuming of carpet & hard floor surfaces.

 

Cleaners Arrival Window

 

We schedule our cleanings in an order that requires the least amount of drive time in an effort to maintain our prices and avoid trip fees. If you require a specific time, we will make every effort to accommodate your request; however, no time is guaranteed.

 

Due to the unpredictable nature of our business and unforeseen circumstances such as traffic jams or weather conditions, allow us the flexibility of scheduling our cleaning between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

 

We generally do not run more than 30 minutes earlier nor more than 60 minutes later than the scheduled appointment time. If we are running late, we will call you or text you.

 

Uncontrollable Natural Events and Inclement Weather

 

Please keep in mind that residential cleaning has some unpredictable circumstances such as vehicle accidents on the road or health emergencies with the cleaning individual that may lead to last-minute rescheduling in rare instances. It may be best to schedule your cleanings in advance of having an event or turning over a property. We are not responsible for any outcomes resulting from an emergency rescheduling due to the cleaner’s inability to work. We will be closed for business when weather conditions prevent King County (WA) and Surrounding area schools from opening.

 

Right to Reschedule

 

In order to respect all clients’ schedules, if your cleaning requires much more time than discussed, we reserve the right to schedule the additional cleaning time for a different day.

 

Photos

 

As proof of work, generally, we take before and after photos of areas of the home. This is to ensure there is proof the work was completed and there are no discrepancies as a result. Unless specifically requested by the customer not to take photos, we reserve the right to use these photos as marketing material as long as there is no identifying information in the photos.

 

Moving of furniture/other large items

 

By booking a cleaning service with Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC, I understand that my cleaning team will not move large furniture heavier than 30lbs or kitchen appliances. It is my responsibility to move these items if I want the areas around them cleaned.

 

Damages

 

We will make every effort not to break or damage items, but accidents do happen. In the event Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC or Cleaner accidentally breaks or damages something in your home, it must be reported within 48 hours. Pictures must be provided for broken items or damaged areas to either info@pugetsoundcleaners.com or texted to 206-457-1954. You must allow us to send a professional to assess damage and perform repairs in the case we damage something. You must allow us to replace items in the case we break something. Failure to report damages within 48 hours results in the customer assuming liability. Failure to allow us to repair or replace damages results in the customer assuming liability. Puget Sound Cleaning Services LLC cannot be responsible for damage due to faulty and/or improper installation, lack of maintenance, or general wear and tear of any items.

 

Cleaning Supplies

We place a hold/pre-authorization on the card on file before service to ensure the availability of funds. At the end of the service, we charge clients’ cards for the cleaning completed that day.

 

Late Cancellation Fee

 

Because we need notice to be able to replace a client’s missed cleaning, cleanings must be canceled 1 business day before your booking.
