These policies apply to all transactions with Citrus Fresh Housekeeping. Citrus Fresh Housekeeping collects and retains your personal information that is provide by you either verbally and/or in writing in order to effectively provide you with the best service.
ESTIMATES AND APPOINTMENTS
Cleaning services are at an hourly rate in order to accommodate varying property types.
We do our best to provide you with an accurate estimate to complete your cleaning based off of the information given to us. The size and condition of the property affects the amount of time needed to complete the service. We may request for photos of specific areas to provide a virtual assessment if we are unable to schedule an on-site one.
During your visit, if additional time is required, we will contact you via phone call, text, and/or email to request for your approval to continue. Time will only be added in increments of 30 minutes (at the same hourly rate).
We reserve the right to decline service to anyone based on the condition of the property. We can deem a property unserviceable based on photos/videos received or upon arrival to the appointment. However, if we arrive to the scheduled appointment with full intention of servicing and upon arrival the property is deemed unserviceable, your deposit is non-refundable and you will be charged for the time we spent there.
FOR RECURRING SERVICES
You will usually have the same cleaning technicians, however, if you reschedule your appointment or your technicians are unavailable (due to illness, vacation, emergencies, etc) a different cleaning team may be assigned.
Upon scheduling, we allow ample time for our cleaning technicians to commute between locations, however, they may not arrive at the exact scheduled time due to circumstances such as heavy traffic and parking or vehicle issues. We also do our best to accommodate varying needs between each client to ensure the quality of our services so the start time may also be affected if the previous client needs additional time to complete the cleaning. In some cases, the cleaners may have to return at a later time to complete the cleaning if the allotted time does not suffice.
We kindly ask that you please allow a 30-60 minute gap for your cleaning technicians to arrive in case of these instances.
If we receive a cancellation for a visit that is before your appointment, we may contact you to begin your cleaning sooner.
CANCELLATION AND RESCHEDULING
Any questions, concerns or adjustments regarding your account and/or cleaning must be directed to the office.
If our cleaning technicians are unable to immediately access the property, we will notify you via phone call, text and/or email. If we do not receive a response from you within 20 minutes, your appointment is considered cancelled (without notice) and the cancellation fee will be exercised.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please send a text 424.426.2112 and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org, 24 hours prior to the booked date and time during our business hours Monday - Friday 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM and Saturday 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST to avoid a $98.00 cancellation fee and have your deposit returned.
If you contact us outside of our normal business hours (5:01 PM - 8:59 AM PST and Sunday), we will do our best to respond to you, however, in the event we do not, voicemail, text messages and emails will be addressed during our usual office hours of 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Monday thru Friday and 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Saturday (PST). A cancellation/rescheduling fee will be applied if you cancel after office hours and/or it is less than 24 hours prior to your scheduled cleaning.
CANCELLING RECURRING APPOINTMENTS
If an appointment is canceled or skipped with little [less than 24 hours of your appointment] or no notice, the cancellation fee will be applied and your next rate may adjust to the next frequency rate. If you have not been serviced by us after a month’s time, the current initial/intermittent cleaning rate may be applied.
RESCHEDULING RECURRING APPOINTMENTS
Appointments must be rescheduled within the same week of your designated cleaning day to maintain the rate.
We require a deposit to book your initial appointment or intermittent appointment depending on the date of your most recent visit. A formal estimate will be sent to you for you to sign and submit your deposit. The credit card used to pay your deposit will be automatically saved to your account/client hub. Deposits submitted go toward the total price of the service after the cleaning has been completed.
