Service Package Details at Affordable Cleaning Today
Our service packages are tailored to meet diverse client needs, each with distinct features:
Offers a recurring cleaning service with the flexibility to reserve specific dates in advance, subject to availability. This package allows clients to request a set cleaner, ensuring consistent service quality. It is priced with a built-in discount in comparison to our one-time cleaning service.
Designed as a budget-friendly option, this package includes significantly discounted plans. While it typically does not offer set date reservations, clients have the option to book a cleaning on dates that are already open in our schedule. If a desired date is available, the booking will be held. Additionally, there is a possibility for rescheduling, depending on the availability of our cleaners at that time. The pricing structure reflects savings compared to our one-time cleaning service.
Both packages provide a built-in discount relative to the one-time cleaning service. This ensures that clients have access to affordable and flexible cleaning solutions that align with their individual requirements.
At Affordable Cleaning Today, we are committed to offering quality cleaning services that cater to various needs and preferences, ensuring value and satisfaction for our clients.
Rescheduling and Cancellations:
Clients are entitled to one complimentary rescheduling per booking, depending on their package. Subsequent rescheduling requests after 6 PM Eastern Standard Time the day before the scheduled cleaning will incur a $30 fee.
Cancellations made less than 48 hours before the scheduled appointment will incur a fee of 65% of the cleaning charge.
A $50 fee applies for cancellations while our team is on-site.
Canceling a recurring booking, especially the 2nd in a series, will be billed as a one-time cleaning at $204.99, with the rate difference charged accordingly.
Photography and Marketing Usage:
Affordable Cleaning Today may photograph properties before and after cleaning. These photographs, used for marketing purposes, are authorized by the client upon engaging our services.

All disputes, controversies, or claims arising out of or relating to the services provided by Affordable Cleaning Today, including but not limited to billing issues, service quality, and terms of service, shall be resolved exclusively through binding and final arbitration, rather than in court.

The arbitration process shall be confidential. Both parties agree to maintain the confidentiality of the arbitration proceedings and the arbitrator's decision, except as necessary to comply with legal or regulatory requirements.
Costs of Arbitration:
The costs of arbitration, including the arbitrator's fees, shall be shared equally by both parties unless the arbitrator determines that the fees should be allocated differently.

In any arbitration, the arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive, incidental, consequential, or any other damages not measured by the prevailing party's actual damages, except as may be required by statute.
If any part of this arbitration agreement is deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in effect and enforceable.
Modification of Agreement:
Affordable Cleaning Today reserves the right to modify this arbitration agreement at any time. Continued use of our services after any changes indicates acceptance of the new terms.

For our standard, deep, and move-out cleanings, we normally send one cleaner per job. However, for spaces larger than 2500 sq feet or for major dust situations, we will require sending two cleaners. Additional cleaners can be added for an extra fee. For our maid service, we typically send one cleaner per job regardless of the size of your home. However, if you require two cleaners for the maid service, we can arrange this for an additional fee of double the standard rate. Please contact us for a custom quote. The 2200 sq ft requirement is applicable to our standard, deep, and move-out cleaning services. Our cleaners are reliable and professional, ensuring your satisfaction with the cleaning services provided.

We will gladly work around pets, but we must limit indoor activity in order to maintain cleaning efficiency and safety. If your pet becomes anxious or presents a safety threat, Affordable Cleaning Today LLC reserves the right to remove its personnel from the premises.
It is our policy not to enter a house if we believe an animal is a threat. Pets may behave differently without family members present. If our cleaning technician is removed for aggressive animals, our cancellation policy will apply.
During the instant price calculation, we use our years of experience, but we may adjust the price based on the house's actual condition. In order to avoid any surprises when we arrive & discover the job requires extra time, we will notify you. If we are unable to reach you, the crew will have to leave & a cancellation fee will apply.
In the event that the cleaning time differs significantly from the original bid, Affordable Cleaning Today LLC will contact the client to discuss price or service revisions. We reserve the right to reevaluate rates at any time based on the amount of time it takes to perform the service to meet the client's standards.
Payments must be made by credit card.
At Affordable Cleaning Today LLC, ensuring your satisfaction is our foremost goal. After our cleaning technicians complete their work, we conduct a thorough walkthrough with you to make sure all your expectations are met. If you have any concerns, especially regarding our checklist-based deep cleaning services, we encourage you to consult directly with the cleaning team member on-site or contact our office. Prompt communication is key to addressing and resolving any issues to your satisfaction.
Our hourly cleaning services are sold as-is and are customized based on the specific cleaning checklist you provide over the phone and onsite. Should you have any concerns or special requests during the cleaning process, we urge you to reach out to our concierge team or speak directly with the assigned cleaning team member. Our aim is to deliver a cleaning experience that perfectly aligns with your needs and standards.
At Affordable Cleaning Today LLC, we are committed to providing you with services that fully meet your expectations and contribute to a cleaner, more comfortable environment.

After Hours Bookings
Prior to the arrival of our cleaner, we kindly ask that all clutter be removed from the areas that will be cleaned. This policy is in place to ensure that our cleaning services are completed as efficiently and effectively as possible. Please note that additional fees may be charged if the cleaning team/individual takes a long time to tidy up.
During the cleaning process, the cleaner will assess the level of dust and clutter in the area to be cleaned in order to provide an efficient and thorough clean. During this initial assessment, he/she will identify any areas that require special attention, allowing them to tailor the cleaning service accordingly. To ensure that your space is kept spotless and tidy, the assessment also determines if any extra services, like heavy or medium dusting, or additional hourly services (if they do not conflict with the cleaner's schedule), need to be added. Please note that our maid service is based on time, so the actual time required to clean your space will be factored in on-site.
For the safety and well-being of our cleaning personnel, we reserve the right to reschedule any cleaning appointments that go over 6 pm Eastern time or that require additional time beyond the initial estimate. We operate site unseen and base our cleanings on the conversations via the phone or the instruction in the special notes. If, upon arrival, our cleaner determines that more time is needed than initially estimated, we may choose to reschedule the appointment for a later time to ensure the safety of our staff.
If we determine that it is unsafe to continue working, we will communicate with the customer to reschedule the appointment for a later time. We value the safety and health of our staff and customers, and we appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Please note that we reserve the right to charge a fee for any appointments that are rescheduled due to safety concerns or additional time required beyond the initial estimate. We also reserve the right to cancel any appointments that pose a risk to our staff.
Thank you for your cooperation, which enables us to provide you with the highest quality of cleaning services.
