In order to prevent misunderstanding or miscommunication, the following is the Terms of Service that apply when booking a service with and hiring No More Dust (NMD) Maid Services LLC:
All clients (residential, commercial, post-construction):

These apply and are legally binding to all our clients who book a service with us over the phone, through our website or by email. By booking a service with us, you agree to have a pre-authorization hold placed on your credit/debit card for the full amount of your service 1 day before your service then charged at the end of the day of service.
2. No More Dust Maid Services LLC provides interior residential and commercial cleaning services only. We service residential and commercial properties. Only when hired to do a trash-out cleaning will we remove large amounts of clutter, items and trash to a client-provided dumpster container. Those trash-out cleaning services are at a different rate than our typical cleaning services.
3. Both the client and No More Dust Maid Services LLC and our Independent Contractors are responsible for clear communication and being responsible with the clients’ belongings and property. All incidents big or small are to be reported immediately.
4. No More Dust Maid Services LLC guarantees client satisfaction. We typically charge a flat rate to perform cleaning services based on the average amount of time to complete the cleaning of your size home. We reserve the right to update your service to the correct service should you choose the incorrect service for your needs. Should you decline updating of your booking to the correct service, we cannot and will not guarantee our work. If we miss something included in your cleaning, we will come back to correct it for no extra charge. This guarantee is for 72 hours – you must notify us withing 72 hours and allow us back into the location to correct the area of the original cleaning. In addition to that, in the case we arrive to your home and determine you require additional services not booked, such as a deep clean, we will communicate the required changes and costs upfront. If you do not agree to the additional charges, we will perform your booked services but cannot guarantee you a complete cleaning. If we arrive to the home and determine there is excessive dust/dirt/grime/grease, we will add a heavy duty cleaning fee of $75 to your booking.
5. No More Dust Maid Services LLC reserves the right not to clean any home based on common sense policies that protect everyone like a safe working environment, presence or suspicion of bugs of any sort, presence of blood or hazardous material (i.e. mold, etc), and presence or suspicion of rodents of any kind.
