Terms & Conditions
When you book a cleaning service with Ultimate Sparkle Cleaning LLC, you must accept the general terms and conditions listed below.
Scope of Work
Our cleaning packages are priced using a business developed algorithm to determine pricing. Each package includes a list of tasks that our cleaners will complete when they arrive at your home. This pricing has been created based on the time it takes our cleaners to clean an average home. Our services are also priced with the understanding that the customer’s home is maintained and kept to a reasonable level of cleanliness.
In the event that we are not able to visit your home prior to a cleaning to verify the condition or size of your home, we rely on you to provide us with accurate information regarding the condition and size of your home. Our cleaning services are based on the list of tasks to be completed during a cleaning as determined at the time of your booking. This list of tasks is referred to as the “scope of work”.
If a cleaner arrives at your home and it does not meet these reasonable expectations (if your home is dirtier or larger than expected), we will contact you to review the options with you for the scheduled cleaning service. This could include extending the length of the cleaning or reducing the amount of tasks to be completed during your cleaning.
We ask that you provide our cleaners with a safe and smoke-free environment. Please review the customer responsibilities below.
To ensure your cleaning service goes as smoothly as possible, make sure that your home is clutter-free before the cleaning. If a house contains clutter, we will move the clutter into a pile before cleaning. If the clutter cannot be picked up in less than a minute, this is beyond the scope of our services. Your cleaning services may be rescheduled or the length of the cleaning may be extended. In the event of an abundance of clutter is found in your home, we will contact you immediately to discuss the options available for your scheduled cleaning.
You are responsible for making sure that your home does not contain hazards that could injure or endanger our cleaners.
- All electrical equipment should be safe to use.
- There should be no exposed electrical wiring.
- The cleaner will not clean hazardous materials including vomit, blood, urine, feces, black mold, drug paraphernalia, or any other hazardous substance.
When we clean your home, we need you to make sure that your pet is safe and away from the area. You are responsible for restraining or removing your pets prior to cleaning. When our cleaner arrives at your home, they will not clean a room or area unless your pet is in a crate, cage, or outside of the home. Ultimate Sparkle Cleaning Service will not be held liable for any issues related to your pets. Please discuss any pets with us prior to your first scheduled cleaning.
We ask that you don’t smoke during the time of your cleaning. If you are a smoker, don’t smoke in the home or around our cleaners while they are working. The cleaner has the right to cancel your cleaning services if smoking occurs during the cleaning.
Our cleaners do not move heavy furniture or appliances such as beds, refrigerators, washers, and dryers. We may move light furniture such as a side table, but this will be done at the discretion of the cleaner. Moving heavy furniture is beyond the scope of our services. We will clean visible areas, but cannot move furniture or appliances to clean underneath or behind areas that are not visible.
Alarm Systems & Security
If your home is secured with an alarm system, please let us know how you would like us to enter your home before our cleaners arrive. If possible, provide our cleaners with instructions or a security code to use when entering your home.
You are responsible for providing us with instructions on using your alarm system prior to our arrival at your home. Our cleaners will not be responsible for allowing visitors, workers, or family into your home while they are cleaning your home or business.
For the safety of our cleaners, we ask that you store any firearms in a locked area before their arrival at your home. Our cleaners will not be responsible for cleaning a room that contains a visible firearm or a gun placed under a mattress, pillow or not secured in a locked area.
Ultimate Sparkle Cleaning LLC offers a variety of cleaning services. We use our own equipment and cleaning supplies. If you prefer that we use a specific product to clean your home, you can provide it to our cleaners with instructions on how to use them. However, we will not be held responsible for any damages caused by cleaning supplies provided by the customer.
Cancelation and Late Fees
Except in certain circumstances left to the discretion of the owner of Ultimate Sparkle Cleaning LLC., we require customers to give us 48 hours’ notice if they need to cancel or reschedule their booking. If the customer cancels or reschedules within 48 hours of their booking, we charge them a 50% cancellation fee.
If a scheduled clean is canceled on the day of service, or the Cleaner arrives at the home and is unable to clean it (for example, they aren’t able to enter the home), you will be charged a 100% cancellation fee.
Our cleaners will not clean a home that has the utilities turned off, or if they encounter anything that could be hazardous to the cleaner such as mold, hazardous materials, excessive clutter, or hoarding. If our cleaners arrive at your home and cannot clean your home for any of these reasons, you will be charged a 100% percent cancellation fee and your service time will need to be rescheduled.
