Terms and Conditions

By May 16, 2020 No Comments

By booking service through our online booking tool or over the phone, you agree to the following Terms and Conditions of Service:

  1. One-Time & Initial Cleans – All one-time cleans and initial cleans are timed and billed hourly. A labor hour is defined as one hour performed by one person. Therefore, a team of two working for one hour is two labor hours. The base rate quoted is based on the number of labor hours estimated to complete the work. Because we quote homes sight unseen, your one-time/initial service could take more or less time than the amount estimated. Should the team require more than the budgeted time, we will be calling you to advise during the service at the number you provided at the time of booking, so please keep your phone on. If the team completes your service in less than the budgeted time, your base rate will be adjusted accordingly.
  2. Flat Rate Recurring Services – Your recurring service (after the initial cleaning) is flat-rated at a reduced rate based on the frequency, the details, and the rooms selected. If a flat rate service is regularly rescheduled, we reserve the right to deny discounted flat rates as the discounts are established based on the consistency and frequency of service. Anything additional, including the cleaning of rooms not originally quoted needs to be arranged before the service with the office as additional fees will apply. If the team is instructed to skip an area that is included in the flat rate, the rate will not be reduced.
  3. Payment: Payment is due at the time services are rendered and will be charged to the credit card we have on file for you upon the completion of the service. All billing inquiries should be made to the office and not to the team onsite.
  4. Cancellation & Re-Scheduling – A minimum of TWO FULL business days’ notice (we are closed on the weekends and stat holidays) is required to cancel or skip scheduled service. Less than two full business days’ notice is considered a Late Cancellation and a fee of 50% of the scheduled service price will apply. Same-day cancellations will be billed at 100% of the scheduled service price. No exceptions!
  5. Lock Out Policy – If for any reason the team cannot access the home on the day of the scheduled service, it will be considered a Lockout. Lockouts will be billed at 100% of the scheduled service price.
  6. Health & Safety – Vapour Clean reserves the right to refuse service if a customer’s home poses a Health and Safety risk to our staff. The team does not and will not clean materials deemed bio-hazardous. Bio-hazardous materials include but are not limited to: human and/or animal blood, human and/or animal body fluids such as feces, vomit, and urine; pet litter boxes, black or toxic mold, insect infestations, rodent activity, used contraceptives or hypodermic needles. To prevent back injury, we also ask that cleaning staff not be asked to move or lift heavy furniture. We only move furniture that is reasonable and must have foot protection.
  7. Before Our Visit – To give you the greatest value possible, we ask you to take a few minutes before our visit to put away clothing, toys, and other personal items. If we can’t see your baseboards, we won’t be able to clean them.
  8. Post Renovations – We do not offer post-renovation/construction cleaning. Our house cleaning services do not include removing drywall dust, debris, or paint splatters. If we arrive and are unable to clean our same-day cancellation fee applies.
  9. Parking – The client is responsible for ensuring that free parking is readily available for the Vapour Clean employee upon arrival at the client’s residence and the entire duration of the services being provided.
  10. Additional Work – We are always pleased to assist you with your additional cleaning requests.  Simply contact us 48 hours before your next appointment so that we may schedule additional time to complete the extra tasks. Additional charges will apply. Please note: Vapour Clean services offered do not include dishes, laundry, or bedsheet changing.
  11. Satisfaction Guarantee – Vapour Clean provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with the cleaning, please let our office know within 24 hours and we will return to make it right – at no additional charge.
