All appointments that are canceled 48 business hours PRIOR to their scheduled time will not be charged
All appointments canceled within 48 business hours of their scheduled time will be considered a "last minute Cancellation" and charged 50% of my current rate or $75, whichever is more. This is to compensate our staff for the loss of time and work, leaving a gap in our schedule.
In the event that Regal Cleaning Services needs to cancel your cleaning due to a sick cleaning tech, we will provide you with 1-2 alternate dates/times ASAP.
If you are unable to reschedule, we will add additional time to your next cleaning to get your home back in tip-top shape, at no cost to you.
If you are able to reschedule, we will discount your cleaning by 50% of the extra time we would have spent at your rescheduled cleaning, our gift to you, to show our appreciation for your understanding that we are a people-based business.
We are a pet-loving cleaning company and our techs love to love on your pets! See our pet pics on the website! Please feel free to leave your people-loving pets loose in the house.
We do ask you to remember that we are not responsible for pet prints on a wet floor or any other mischief they may get into while we are cleaning 🙂
We ask that if you know your pet will experience anxiety during your cleaning (vacuuming, smells, etc) to please make the necessary arrangements to make sure they are comfortable.
ALL AGGRESSIVE animals are required to be kenneled in a separate room (which we will not be cleaning) or not be in the home at the time of the cleaning.
If you are unsure how your pet will do, please err on the side of caution for the safety of both our techs and your pet.
If we arrive at the property and are greeted by an aggressive animal, we reserve the right to not clean your home until the necessary arrangements are made.
Our expectation is that our clients monitor their homes for bugs/pests/infestations. We reserve the right to refuse service if the home has a visible infestation and may require professional pest control services.
In such an event, Regal Cleaning will consider this a cancellation and follow our last-minute cancellation policy with a charge of 50% or $75, whichever is more. This is to compensate for the loss of time and work.
Furthermore, Regal Cleaning Services will not return until proof of professional pest control services is rendered.
We will put all trash from your home, including disposal of our vacuum canisters, in the trash can advised by you at your initial cleaning. If there are no cans available, the trash will be left in an "animal safe" area like inside the garage in bags. We DO NOT take trash with us in our vehicles.
Regal Cleaning Services increases rates as needed or on a yearly cost of living basis. We are committed to offering our cleaning technicians a living wage.
Regal Cleaning requires a deep cleaning upgrade based on the following scheduled services
- Monthly cleans - Deep cleaning is required annually
- Biweekly cleans - Deep cleaning is required every 18 months
- Weekly cleans - Deep cleaning required every 2 years
Deep cleans are important as they help us to reset your home to the same blank slate you received when you first joined our Regal family. Keep in mind, it is not the same cost you encountered during your initial clean, rather it is only double the cost of your current maintenance. Additionally, we will add another cleaning tech so, please reach out to let us know what areas you feel may need some extra attention. This will allow us to assess your recurring service rate and make any adjustments necessary to ensure we are spending a suitable amount of time in your home and your cleaner is paid appropriately
We value family and know how important it is for our Cleaning Techs to have time with their families. We are closed on major Holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, The day after Christmas, New Year's Day, and Black Friday, and work a half day on the 4th of July. We will work with you to schedule a makeup visit if your cleaning falls on any of these dates.
We understand that schedules change and sometimes a client may need to skip a cleaning cycle.
Please notify us at least 48 business hours in advance if you need to cancel or reschedule a cleaning (our technicians rely on their scheduled hours).
Cancellations on the same day of service will be charged 50% or $75, whichever is more for the scheduled service. All cancellations must be made through Regal Cleaning’s office.
All cancellations will also cause the rate for your next cleaning to increase to the next level (for example- If your home is serviced weekly and you skip service, you will have to pay the bi-weekly rate for your next cleaning. If your home is serviced Bi-weekly and you skip a service you will pay the monthly rate for your next cleaning and so forth. If you have to skip multiple cleanings, you will need a general cleaning before getting back on the schedule
If Regal has to skip your scheduled service, we follow the same as above, but the cost difference is on us 🙂
Regal Cleaning Services will require access to your property on the scheduled day/time of your appointment.
Regal does NOT keep keys, the entrance will need to be a garage or door code, or a key is hidden for us. Regal will always secure your doors when leaving unless you are home and ask us not to.
In the event that we are locked out or can not access your property due to a faulty code/lock, we will contact you immediately and ask for an alternative way to enter. If another way to access the job is not given, we will follow our "last-minute cancellation policy". This is to compensate our cleaning techs for the loss of time and work.
