By using this website to book a service, you agree to comply to be bound by these terms & conditions if you do not agree to these terms & conditions, it is recommended that you do not book a service with us.
Booking a service online doesn’t guarantee you a spot for that date/time, you will be contacted by email or phone with a confirmation.
Our providers have been properly vetted & prior to onboarding with us, you can rest assured all of our providers have integrity and are 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, severe clutter & disconnected utilities.
Our providers have the choice to leave if the home is in an extremely unsanitary condition or if they feel unsafe/threatened. If you book a cleaning that is unreasonable, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot & you will be charged the 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.
These services are available for an extra charge:
- Heavy-duty cleaning
- Wet wipe/detail blinds
- Clean inside oven
- Pet Cleanup
We will gladly work around pets, we ask that indoor activity is limited for cleaning efficiency & safety reasons, if your pet becomes anxious or presents a safety concern, Bristle and Mop reserves the right to remove its providers from your home.
Our providers 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 provider is due to aggressive pets, our cancellation policy will apply.
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 & find that the job will require extra time we’ll call you to let you know if we are unable to reach you, the provider 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, Bristle and Mop will contact the client to discuss price or service revisions if the cleaning time differs significantly.
Payments are made by credit card only. Cards will not be charged until AFTER the appointment is completed.
We do not offer refunds, we have built our business providing our clients with the best possible service available, still, we realize that we are human, things will from time to time get missed, should this happen email or call us within 24 hours & we will correct the error at no charge.
Recurring Service Discount
Recurring discounts start AFTER the first cleaning service, if you skip cleanings so that your cleaning’s frequency is lower than what you were set up for, your price will be increased to the pricing level for the lower frequency
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. The customer’s rate shall be increased annually, by an amount not-to-exceed 10% of the client’s current rate.
The client shall make the service location accessible to Bristle and Mop providers on the scheduled service day. If the team is locked out of the Client’s home, every effort will be made to establish contact with the Client to arrange for entry into the home, if contact is not made within 30 minutes of the arrival of the cleaning team, the scheduled cleaning will be skipped & you will be charged $100 late cancellation fee, this fee is necessary to compensate the providers for unexpected lost revenue & time travel, to avoid the fee provide us with a key or code to gain entry to your home.
Service reliability is extremely important because we reserve a time, especially for you, we request that you give us a minimum of 24 Hrs. advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule for any reason to avoid incurring a $100 cancellation fee.
Please note that if service is canceled with less than 24 hours notice, OR we are unable to access the home upon arrival, OR we are turned away at the door, a cancelation/lockout fee of $100 will be charged to the credit card on file.
If your home is equipped with a security system, please ensure that it is in the off position or call our office with the code & proper directions for use. If the code should change please let us know so you do not incur a lockout charge.
Use of Homeowner’s Vacuum
If you request to use your vacuum, we will not assume or accept any liability for damage to the unit. Since we are not responsible for the maintenance of the vacuum, we will not be responsible for any repairs to it.
