Terms and Conditions

  • Satisfaction Guarantee
    Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you are not completely satisfied with any part of your service we will return to your home to re-clean the area/task within 24-hours or we'll apply a credit into your account towards our next visit. This will not apply if you are home upon completion. If you are home and notice that the cleaner overlook something please don't keep it to yourself, tell the cleaner to re-clean the area or call our office before the cleaner leaves your home. Please contact the office as soon as possible during our normal business hours. Good Impressions Cleaning Services has a 48 HOUR WARRANTY PERIOD from the day of completion of the cleaning. If we have missed an area, damaged or broken an item, please call within that time frame and we will come out and re-clean the area in question. We work very hard to avoid these issues by training our staff to be careful and detail oriented, and by inspecting our work. Complaints filed more than 48 hours after the completion of cleaning fall outside the warranty period, and unfortunately may not be covered. GIC will not be held responsible for repair or replacement of items broken or damaged due to pre-existing wear and tear, incorrect installation, assembly or usage.
  • GIC is not responsible for not completing or providing the Service as a result of a breach of a warranty by the Customer (including a failure by the Customer to provide proper materials, cleaning equipment, utility services, a safe working environment or unencumbered access to the Premises); or any damages caused by defective cleaning materials or cleaning equipment provided by the Customer; not completing or providing the Service as a result of the Cleaner not proceeding for health and safety reasons; any loss or damage incurred by the Customer or any third party as a result of the effects of a force majeure, being any event beyond the reasonable control of GIC; not completing or providing the Service due to an act or omission of the Customer or any other person at the Premises during provision of the Service; existing dirt, wear, damage or stains that cannot be completely cleaned or removed; any wear or discoloring of fabric or surfaces becoming more visible once dirt has been removed; any loss incurred as a result of any breakage or damage to goods, items of value (including antiques, items of sentimental value) or the Premises; or the cost of any key replacement or locksmith fees, unless keys were lost by GIC or the Cleaner.
  • Payments
    Payments are due in full upon completion of service. For your convenience, we gladly accept the following forms of payment: MasterCard/Visa/AMEX, cash or check.
  • Refunds
    There are no refunds for gift certificate purchases. Since cleaning is a very personalized and subjective service, we cannot offer refunds to customers. However, we want you to be 100% satisfied with GIC!
  • Appointment Arrival Time Windows
    If you wish to be present during the cleaning visit, please be advised that we provide arrival windows of about 30 minutes, such as between 9am - 9:30am or 10am - 10:30am. Many things can affect our schedules, such as cancellations, lockouts etc. If we happen to be running late to your appointment you will be contacted as soon as possible and provided with a new expected time of arrival.
  • Lifting
    Our employees are very important to us, and we are determined to keep them safe, so they do not use tall ladders or move anything heavier than 50 lbs. These types of activities put our maids in danger of back injury or could even damage something in your home such as scratches on your wood floors.... If you would like us to clean behind appliances like a refrigerator, oven or furniture such as a sofa, please move it prior to the cleaning visit to allow access to the area.
  • Tipping
    Although it's not necessary to tip our employees it is encouraged, and of course the best way to say job well done! You may include your tips with your payment and we will pass them along to the maids or give it to them directly.
  • Lock Outs
    A $40 fee will be assessed in the event that our cleaning associates arrive and are unable to access the premises. This fee is in place to cover expenses we incur for lost travel time and fuel.
  • Late Cancellations
    Any appointment cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time will be subject to a $20 cancellation fee. Same day cancellation is $40.
  • Returned Check Fee
    A $25 fee will be assessed for all cancelled or returned checks.
  • Collections Fee
    A $25 fee will be assessed for all monies owed that must go to our collections office.
  • Credit Card Fee

  • Additions and Amendments

If the Customer requires any additional services or variations at the time the Service is being performed, the Customer must first contact by telephone, who may agree to provide the additional services in its absolute discretion. The Cleaner is not authorized to agree to any changes to the Service being provided. The Customer must not request such changes directly from the Cleaner. All communication has to go through our office.

  • No Engagement of Cleaners
    The Customer acknowledges GIC invests significant resources in recruiting, selecting and training its Cleaners. Unless GIC gives prior written permission, the Customer must not, directly or indirectly, engage, employ or contract with any Cleaner to provide domestic services to the Customer or any associate of the customer for any period during which services are provided by GIC or for a period within 12 months after the conclusion of any Service. The Customer acknowledges that GIC may suffer loss and damage, including, without limitation consequential loss, as a result of a breach of this clause by the Customer.
  • Job Quotations
    The actual price payable by the Customer is calculated on the total number of hours worked by the Cleaner. Any price quoted by GIC is an estimate only based on GIC's experience, without inspection, and based on information provided by the Customer. When our cleaners get to the job, they will access the job for an accurate quote. If at the commencement or during the course of providing the Service, it is apparent that the actual cost of the Service will exceed the quote provided by GIC, GIC will provide the Customer with the option to pay an increased fee to complete the Service, or pay the quoted amount without the Service being completed. The Customer must inform GIC whether any cleaning services required are for an 'end of tenancy' at the time of quotation.
  • Bookings
    The Customer may make a booking personally over the telephone. We do not accept third party booking unless he or she will be paying for the service. At the time of booking the Customer must provide details of any hazards, slippery surfaces, risks or dangers, ingrained dirt, grease or grime located at the Premises; GIC provides all quotations at the time of booking. The Customer agrees to provide GIC with their valid credit card details at the time of booking, and authorizes GIC to debit any card with an amount equal to any service and/or cancellation fees that may apply under this Agreement. GIC reserves the right not to accept a booking for any reason.
  • Payment Terms
    The Customer agrees to pay the price quoted by GIC in full prior to or at the Service Time, unless otherwise agreed in advance with GIC. If no payment has been made by the Service Time, GIC will use reasonable endeavors to contact the Customer for payment. In the event that GIC cannot contact the Customer or payment is not made by the Service Time, the Customer will be deemed to have cancelled the Service, and the Customer must pay any cancellation fees. Payments may be made via credit card, check or in cash.
  • Late Payment Fee
    Where GIC has agreed to invoice the Customer for payment of fees after the Service has been completed, the Customer agrees to pay in full, all fees due, within 7 days of the invoice date for commercial cleaning. Residential cleaning customers agree to pay in full upon completion of the job. The Customer agrees that if GIC has not received payment in full for the Service within one calendar month of the original invoice date then a late payment fee of $15 applies for the first month. Interest will be charged on the fixed rate of 10% per annum on each day that any amount remains outstanding thereafter. In addition to the amounts set out above, the Customer agrees to indemnify GIC for all legal costs (on a solicitor and own client or full indemnity basis, whichever is greater) and other expenses incurred by GIC in connection with a demand, action, or other proceeding (including mediation, out of court settlement or any action taken for recovery of debt from the Customer) arising out of a breach of these terms including the failure by the Customer to pay an amount by the due date.
  • Non-appearance
