Let's Team Up For a Healthy Home

An Important Message from The Boardwalk Cleaning Co.

The health and welfare of our customers and our employees is always a top priority. As such, we’d like to share with you the precautions that the Boardwalk Cleaning Co. has implemented to help keep you (our clients) and our employees safe and healthy this and every season!

  • We will under no circumstance allow any employee that is sick, has any flu-like symptoms or who has a sick family member come to work.
  • All interior surfaces of the teams’ cars are disinfected each evening.
  • All cleaning cloths are switched out between homes and thoroughly laundered each night.
  • Our vacuums and vacuum attachments, cleaning tools, and buckets are disinfected between homes and each night.
  • Cleaning technicians will wash their hands prior to entering your home. They will also wash their hands once in your home, and wash hands prior to leaving your home.
  • Our offices are following proper guidelines on workplace preparedness and employee safety, including ensuring a clean and hygienic workplace.

As with the flu season, we will disinfect throughout your home.

  • Our technicians use a hospital grade disinfectant and virucide cleaner to sanitize often touched surfaces in your home like door knobs, light switches, refrigerator handles, drawers and cabinet pulls, etc.
  • Lastly, we request that you cancel your cleaning appointment if you or a family member is sick, experiencing flu-like symptoms or has tested positive for the flu or coronavirus. We will waive all cancellation fees related to you or family members being sick.
  • We want to assure you all that we are taking all the necessary precautions. We’d rather be proactive and have nothing happen than to risk anyone’s wellness by not being prepared.
  • Please feel free to reach out to the office at (512) 258-4798 if you have any questions or concerns.

Sound advice from the CDC/WHO

Some sound advice from the CDC:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid public places to help slow the spread.
  • Wash and sanitize your household – focusing on often touched areas such as light switches/handles/toilet handles/cabinet handles/etc.
  • Call your medical professional if you are experiencing symptoms and they will direct you where to go to help prevent infecting others.

Terms of Service

24-Hour Clean Warranty

Did we miss a spot? Our services have a 24-Hour Warranty! If we don’t clean something to your satisfaction, contact us within 24-Hours of your service and we will return to clean any unsatisfactory areas. If we are closed, you can leave a time-stamped message at (512) 258-4798 or [email protected] and your 24-Hour Warranty will be honored.

Please note that a “re-do” service must be scheduled to occur within 2-days of your initial service. 

Our Service Fee

This fee includes the cost of cleaning materials and the cost of traveling to your home. 

Our Cancellation Policy

We require a 24-Hour notice of cancellation.

Because we reserve a time especially for you, please make any schedule changes by 5PM the day before service to avoid incurring a $75 late cancellation fee.

Our Lockout Policy

Please leave a key or provide us with access to your home for all scheduled appointments. If we are unable to enter your home for any reason, a $75 Lockout Fee will be assessed. 

When is my credit card charged?

Effective February 4, 2022, all first time cleanings will require a 50% deposit, payable by credit card, to get on our cleaning schedule.

We will keep your credit card on file and upon completion of your service, your credit card will be charged for the remaining balance due. 

Late Fees

If your credit card declines, we will reach out for a different form of payment.

Payment is due upon receipt. Effective April 10, 2024, accounts not paid within 3 days of the date of the service are considered late. Unpaid balances are subject to a daily $1 late fee, charged until the balance is paid in full.

We reserve the right to refuse service

We reserve the right to deny and/or terminate service because of safety concerns, inappropriate or uncomfortable situations, weapons/drugs on premises, severe clutter, hoarding situations or disconnected utilities.

Our employees have the choice to leave if they find unsanitary conditions or if they feel unsafe or threatened. If you book a cleaning that is unreasonable, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot and you will be charged a $75 cancellation fee

Move In & Move Out Cleaning Service Policy

Items that are left behind by a client will NOT be discarded by the maid team. If you want for us to remove items from the premises, we charge an additional fee for removing the personal property that was left behind.

If we cannot reach a client to discuss the removal of items, we will try to put items in one general area so that the rental unit looks tidy. We do not move oversized or heavy items.

Feel free to call us at (512) 258-4798 to discuss your needs in detail. 

Hourly Quotes/Estimates/Jobs and What to Expect

Please note that we will endeavor to complete all cleaning tasks within the time we’ve estimated. In some cases, factors beyond our control might require that you approve additional time at our agreed hourly rate.

Please note that time estimates provided by The Boardwalk Cleaning Co. are guidelines and may vary greatly depending on, but not limited to: actual size of home, condition of home, the number of people and pets that have lived in the home, whether you have electricity and water available, whether you are still in the process of moving and whether the home is still furnished or is completely empty. 

Hourly Clients and Approval for additional time

We will call the phone number(s) on file to advise you if we believe your home will take longer to complete. If we are unable to reach you via phone, we will update you via the email(s) on file. If we do not hear back from you, before your allotted time expires, the maid team will stop work and move on to their next assignment. You may call us to schedule additional maid service as needed for another time or another day.

Please note that we will not warranty our maid service if you do not provide approval for the necessary amount of time that is needed to clean your home. 

For what reasons might my Cleaning Warranty become void?

Your cleaning warranty becomes invalid if:

  • You do not provide approval for the necessary amount of time that is needed to clean your home.
  • You do not contact us within 24-hours of your cleaning service to alert us to an issue.
  • There is another service provider working on your home. ie. electricians, carpenters, handymen, plumbers, painters, carpet cleaners, hvac providers, etc. We must be the only service provider at your home during our cleaning.
  • Please note that a “redo” service of any areas missed must be scheduled to occur within 2-days of your initial service. Redo services outside this window of time will have to pay our normal hourly rate.
