[i] To clean walls for the purposes of a bond clean, we do spot clean only to remove marks – Additional charges may apply if walls are badly marked, or excessively stained as they will require extra cleaning time
[ii] For blinds, we do dustings only to remove dust. There is an assumption that the blinds are in good condition. Dirty or greasy blinds take a lot longer to clean and are not included in our standard bond cleaning service. In this case, bringing them to the standard required to pass a cleaning inspection will require a lot more work and thus additional charges may apply. Blinds which are badly soiled or mouldy may require cleaning by a blinds cleaning specialist.
- Carpet cleaning
Our carpet steam cleaning removes dirt, grime and dust from every day foot traffic and most clear liquid spills. Our best effort will be made to clean the carpets, but the result will vary from carpet to carpet, and the result will be dependent on a number of factors beyond our control (eg. Rust coloured stains which have been left on carpet for long periods of time may not come out) and this means we can’t give actual guarantees on this service.
Also note that discolouration due to wear and tear will actually become more visible after carpet steam cleaning (dirt and stains can hide discolouration).
A credit card must be provided for all end of lease cleaning prior to commencement even if the customer wishes to pay with cash on the day:
- a) The credit card will be charged automatically for the agreed amount once the job has been completed
In order to avoid any business disruptions which can effect our other clients, the minimum cancellation notice period is 24 hours. If for any valid reason you require the booking to be adjusted.
- a) We reserve the right to charge a $50 cancellation fee if a customer fails to provide a 24 hour cancellation notice period
- b) In the event that customer does not appear or does not provide unencumbered access to the premises for our cleaners on the day of the service, the customer agrees to pay a cancellation fee of administrative and travel costs that is equivalent to our minimum call out fee of $150 + GST
- c) If the property is not ready for the cleaning at the service time including tenant still in the process of moving, the customer has the option to cancel ($150 + GST fee) or agrees to pay $45 per hour, per cleaner for the disruption
