Our Policies: Service Agreements
Cleaning Times: We do our best to be prompt and meet the cleaning time indicated, but traffic and other clients may affect our schedule. For this reason, we require a 1-hour arrival window. If no arrival time is indicated, then the cleaning will be completed between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Our cleaners appreciate your flexibility. When possible, please allow for an open time frame rather than an exact arrival time.
Initial DEEP Cleaning: This is your first service. Our deep clean service is a comprehensive top-to-bottom cleaning of your home. We always start your new house cleaning service as a deep cleaning. The goal is to make your home spotless and therefore make your subsequent regular cleanings faster and cheaper. After that we come every one, two or four weeks and keep your home nice and clean.
A deep clean includes all the services of a standard clean, but with more attention to areas you may have forgotten to clean over time. It is a more thorough cleaning that requires going above and beyond attention to detail. Our deep cleaning professionals know exactly where to focus their efforts; whether it is under your bed or that corner that you haven’t attempted to clean in months. We prepare your home for easier cleanings in the future. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed!
Payment Policy: Payment is due on the day of service by ACH, Zelle, or Venmo.
Late Fee: Overdue payments are subject to a late fee of $25.00. In addition, interest will be charged at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per annum on all overdue amounts. The Blue Bucket Cleaning reserves all rights available under Colorado law to collect any amounts due and owing pursuant to this agreement. Customer agrees to reimburse The Blue Bucket Cleaning for all costs (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by The Blue Bucket Cleaning in collecting late payments.
Accounts with excessive no show or cancellation rates may be closed by management even if fees are paid.
Late Cancellation/No Show Fees: If you wish to cancel or reschedule a cleaning appointment, at least 48 business hours’ notice (excluding weekends) is required. We must adhere strictly to this policy in order to prevent lost wages for your cleaner.
If a cleaning appointment is cancelled less than 48 hours in advance, or if the cleaner is unable to enter the house, a cancellation fee of 50% of that cleaning’s cost will be charged. If an open ended (hourly) cleaning is cancelled less than 48 hours in advance, a cancellation fee of $80.00 will be charged.
If a cleaning is rescheduled by the client less than 48 hours in advance, rather than cancelled, a fee of $50.00 will be charged.
Returned Check Fee: Returned checks are subject to a $35.00 processing fee and may incur late payment fees if the issue is not immediately remedied.
