End of Lease Cleaning Pty Ltd (End of Lease Cleaning) ABN 54157830567 is a premium provider of end of lease cleaning & restoration services. We aim to provide the highest level of service for our clients Australia wide. Below is our Terms and Conditions which includes our Complaints Policy. We advise all our prospective clients to become familiar with these before they book our services. End of Lease Cleaning reserves the right to make any changes to any part of these terms and conditions without notice and by publishing to our website. By ordering any End of Lease Cleaning services whether by telephone, e-mail, fax, through its website, app or by any other digital request the Client is deemed to have read and be bound by these Terms and Conditions.
Once your booking is assigned and confirmed with your cleaner, you will be charged a deposit to secure your booking and ensure attendance, the remaining updated balance will be charged to your card once the job has started, based on the updated time estimate required after inspection. If the job requires more time than predicted, you will be charged for the extra time required if you want your cleaners to continue, as this is an hourly cleaning job. If your card fails to be charged on the day, our cleaners will be forced to leave the job site without finishing the job.
Please note that the quote provided is an estimate only, based on the average time taken to clean the areas and items you've selected when placing your booking. It's impossible to predict exactly how long the job will take until the job is complete and approved by the real estate agent or landlord, our cleaners will try to update you with a more accurate estimation for number of hours required once they inspect the property on the day of the booking, however it's still likely that the actual hours taken will be different, as it's impossible to tell until the cleaners are done. What you actually get charged for is the actual time spent on site, as this is an hourly charged service, charged per cleaner per hour, plus cleaning products.
If our cleaners need to spend more time onsite to finish the job, you will be required to pay for the extra time required if you want them to complete the job, or you can request that they stop after they have done a certain number of hours and leave the rest of the job for you to sort out.
Upon inspection by the real estate agent, it's very common that they might find details which they are not happy with. Since this service is charged by time, if your landlord isn’t happy with the clean-up, our team is happy to make another booking to return to clean any missed or unsatisfactory items, and you will only be charged for the extra time required to clean the missed or unsatisfactory items, without having to pay the minimum booking charges again. It's your responsibility to ensure we have access to return to the property to clean or redo any items that might have been missed or are unsatisfactory, even if your lease has ended, and we do not accept any responsibility in the case that you are no longer able to provide access to the property.
We do not provide fixed quotes for our jobs, our services are simply charged by the hour and the quote estimate generated is based on the average time it takes to clean a similar property / item.
You are still required to pay for the time our cleaners spend on site even if there is a complaint from you or from your real estate agent or landlord, and no refunds will be given for time spent cleaning under any circumstances, as having to return back to clean missed or unsatisfactory items is a normal thing and it’s very easy to have missed some details during the clean, especially when the job is large or the place is very dirty to start with, and since you were not charged for that extra time to clean the complaint items initially, you will be required to pay for the extra time required upon our cleaners return to the property. This is only valid when feedback is made within 24 hours after the clean is complete as items can get dusty and dirty again very quickly. You would be required to send us an email which lists the unsatisfactory item so we can schedule it again with our cleaners. Any complaint must be made within 24 hours of the services provided or will not be accepted. Dust accumulates rapidly so the property must be checked and a complaint sent within 24 hours of the cleaning services being provided.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you or your landlord checks the property quickly after our team has completed their work. We request that you or are representative from your side are present onsite when our cleaners are finished with your cleaning to go through all details with our cleaners and ensure everything is done up to standards and that nothing has been missed, and that you are available to answer our calls during while the cleaning is taking place for when we have questions regarding the job or when we need clarification regarding requirements, expectations, access, estimated time required, and payment.
