Terms and Conditions


Cleaning Supplies/ Equipment.

Irene’s Cleaning Service provides environmentally-friendly chemical free products and all equipment required for the cleaning including vacuum. You will need to provide a toilet brush and running water. If you would like us to use specialty products (e.g., simple green, bleach, stainless steel cleaner, sponge mop), please leave it out and include this request in your special account instructions.

In order to reduce cross-contamination we can use your vacuum.

Toilet Brush. All clients are required to have a toilet brush in their unit. In case there is no toilet brush there will be an extra charge of $5 for a new toilet brush. Cleaning Tech will leave the tool in the unit after its use.


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.

Right to Refuse Service

Cleaning technicians have the choice to leave upon arrival if the home is in extreme condition or they feel unsafe/threatened. If you book a cleaning online that is unreasonable, such as a cleaning up after a large party, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot and you will be charged the maximum cancellation fee.

Price Adjustments

If the pricing calculator underestimates the price of your cleaning because the condition of your home is much worse than predicted or because you did not input the accurate information into our online pricing calculator, we will first inform you by call and email. We do have permission to adjust the price, charge the cleaning hourly, or refuse the service. Client agrees to pay technician’s parking cost, if incurred.

Cancellation or Unable to Access

A 50 % of the estimated price as cancellation fee will be applied for cleanings canceled within 24 hours of the scheduled cleaning.

Cancellation during the cleaning

A charge of 100 % of the estimated price as cancellation fee will be applied for cleanings canceled by the client once the cleaning has started. We understand that a cleaning starts once the Cleaning Technician enters the property.

Recurring Price Structure

Recurring clients receive a discount after their first cleaning. 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.

Direct Hiring of Our Cleaning Technicians.

Irene’s Cleaning Service invests heavily in training methods and background screenings to find quality employees. Hiring our current or ex-worker(s), and/or accepting side propositions, makes you liable for an employment referral fee of $5,000.00 if you directly employ (legally or cash basis) anyone currently or formerly employed by us within the two year period prior to such employment. By using our service, you agree to notify us of any attempts to solicit or accept illegal business, otherwise; Attorney, Legal and miscellaneous expenses incurred to investigate and/or collect this fee will be added if this employment is discovered. Exchanging contact info is considered part of this breach. Unless complying with all laws; direct, unreported, or inappropriate employment practices are illegal. You acknowledge being informed that Irene’s Cleaning Service is obligated to report illegal hiring activities. In fact, anyone may report this to the proper government and judicial authorities so investigation ensues. Implication, complicity, or withholding knowledge of illegal activity is not only prosecutable by Irene’s Cleaning Service (when applicable), but also by United States federal and local laws.

We will gladly work around pets. If your pet becomes anxious or presents a safety concern, Irene’s Cleaning Service reserves the right to remove its employees from your home. If an employee leaves your home prior to completion, Irene’s Cleaning Service will charge you a pro-rated expense based on work performed. If removal of our cleaning technician is due to aggressive pets, our cancellation policy will apply.

Breakage/Damage and Loss Policy

Customers must provide images of damage of both before and after the cleaning, along with proof that damages were caused at the time of the cleaning. All claims must be made within 24 hours of the cleaning. Once the office receives the notification, we will contact you as soon as possible. If we do not hear from you within the next 30 days, we will assume you do not want to have us resolve the issue and the situation will void. Identical replacement is always attempted but not guaranteed.

If we are specifically requested to clean the inside of a hutch/china cabinet or wash dishes or wine glasses, the client agrees not to hold Irene’s Cleaning Service or any of its employees responsible for damage to any article or component.

Any re-cleans can only be done with the same cleaning technician(s) unless there is a schedule conflict for the technician and only within the first 72 hours of the cleaning. If you are at home and you notice that the cleaner overlook something please immediately tell the cleaner to re-clean the area or call our office before the cleaner leaves your home.
