GENERAL POLICIES

Lambert Cleaning Service follows these policies below to ensure every cleaning goes as smoothly and cleanly as possible.

SAFETY:

KEYS AND ALARM SYSTEMS
Most Lambert Cleaning Service customers leave a key to their home with us or in a hidden/secure location.  We are very careful to protect each key and safeguard the entrusted access to your property. We assign each customer’s keys with a security code and store them in a key safe. No personal identifying information is ever put on any key. If you have an alarm system, please give access instructions to your Lambert Cleaing Service. 
 
EMPLOYEES
Our cleaning professionals are very important to us, and we are very serious about keeping them safe. Our professionals do not use ladders or move anything heavier than 35lbs. These types of activities put our employees in danger of a fall or back injury. If you would like us to clean behind large appliances like a refrigerator, oven or sofa, please move it prior to our cleaning professionals arrival so we may have access to the desired area.
 
BLEACH
We do use bleach as a cleaning product in homes and businesses. Please be aware that we will not be responsible for any damage caused by its use. Should you require the use of alternative products please request those when booking your service.
 

CANCELLATION:

If you need to cancel service or skip a cleaning day, just give Lambert Cleaning Service 48 hours notice prior to the scheduled cleaning. Your notice will allow us to reassign the cleaning professional to other appointments as necessary. If Lambert Cleaning Service cleaning crew cannot access your home/office the day service is scheduled a full service charge fee will be imposed for your cleaning. All services cancelled same day will incur no less $50.00 cancellation fee. Should you be paying / using promotional products for your scheduled service those promotional products may be subject to revocation/cancellation

ARRIVAL NOTICE:

If you would like to wait for your cleaning Professional to give them access into your home, please note that you will be given 1 hour arrival window surrounding your specific appointment. If your appointment is scheduled at 1:30PM we ask for you to be available between 12:30PM and 2:30PM. Many things can affect our arrival time, such as cancellations, lockouts or customers adding services, so in most cases a smaller arrival window can’t be provided. We want to save you time, not make you waste it waiting for us to arrive. Leaving a key or access instructions for Lambert Cleaning Service ensures that your cleaning professional will have access to your home and you won’t have to wait for us. 

ARRIVAL DAY/TIME:

Lambert Cleaning Service makes every effort to consistently schedule a predetermined set day that we arrive for each cleaning. If for any reason we need to reschedule due to staff illness or other unforeseen circumstances, we will give you as much notice as possible. We may also adjust arrival times of appointments up to 24 hours before the service is conducted. This adjustment helps us ensure we can reduce travel and wait time for all appointments and provide you the most affordable pricing for your service.

PAYMENTS:

Lambert Cleaning Service gladly accepts the following forms of payment:

Cash, Credit Card, Debit Card and Personal/Business Checks

Payment is 5 days from service for Residential customers.  Customers may be required to place a credit card number on file to hold a cleaning service. In the event that payment is not received and we have a credit card on file your credit card will be charged. A $35 fee is applied for all returned checks. If you have left instructions to charge a card after each service, your account will be charged the balance due, plus any fees or additional services added for extra services performed.
