Terms and Conditions
Payment is due from Client to SSR on or before the day of service. A credit card shall be maintained on file and billing options discussed as part of client agreement. A 5% per month late fee will be assessed for late payment on the outstanding balance. First-time clients are required to hold appointment with a credit card and at the time of appointment may opt to pay cash or by check. A minimum charge of $35.00 will be charged for returned/bounced checks in addition to any outstanding amounts. Acceptable methods of payment are cash, check (payable to Sole Source Restoration, LLC), or credit card.
SSR will use its own products and supplies. Should Client require the use of special or hypoallergenic products, Client must notify SSR before cleaning begins. Client may provide any such special or hypoallergenic product. If Client requires SSR to use special or hypoallergenic products, then an additional fee may be assessed before or after the cleaning. Client hereby acknowledges and agrees that Client shall comply, and is solely responsible for compliance, with any and all additional best practice-, health-, or safety-related instructions provided by SSR Representatives and any federal, state or local government entity (whether verbal or written, in the form of any instruction, direction, law or regulation) in connection with any cleaning service or application.
The safety of SSR’s clients and cleaners is paramount. We maintain a strict policy regarding the privacy of our clientele. We guarantee discretion and do not share information (including, but not limited to e-mail, residential addresses, telephone numbers and profiles).
The Agreement shall automatically renew under the terms specified herein for a period equal to the initial period as of expiration of the initial period, and each subsequent term, unless either party notifies the other of non- renewal in writing at least fourteen (14) days before expiration of the current term.
Client will provide SSR access to the Property, and to all areas of the Property scheduled to be disinfected as noted under Scope of Service, on the scheduled service date and at the scheduled time. If Client shall fail to provide prompt access, then SSR may, without limiting SSR’s other remedies at law or under this Agreement, charge to Client SSR’s fees as provided below and deem such failure a material breach of this Agreement and terminate immediately. Full minimum cleaning fee will be billed on the day of cleaning if SSR is unable to gain access to the Property and all areas of the facility or home to be cleaned, if the key has not been left with the landlord, doorman or at/within agreed upon location, or if other contractors have not completed work according to schedule and SSR’s cleaning crew is on site.
In order to cancel a scheduled cleaning appointment, Client shall provide not fewer than forty-eight (48) hour notice to SSR (holidays and weekends included). For appointment cancellation, notice may be given via phone or email. If Client shall fail to provide such 48-hour notice on more than one occasion, then Client shall pay SSR an amount equal to thirty percent (30%) of the fee for the canceled cleaning. If Client cancels more than three*3) consecutive scheduled cleanings, or more than seven (7) total scheduled cleanings, without SSR’s prior written approval (email acceptable for such purpose), then SSR may, without limiting SSR’s other remedies at law or under this Agreement, deem such failure a material breach of this Agreement and terminate immediately.
If Client is paying for a family or friend and the friend or family member lets SSR cleaners in to clean, then
notwithstanding Client’s attempted cancellation, payment will be expected for cleaning performed. For dual
accounts to be cancelled in full, BOTH parties must contact SSR by email at least 48 hours before next
appointment. If one spouse cancels service and the other spouse and/or kids let SSR in to clean, then payment will
be expected for cleaning performed.
SSR may cancel a scheduled cleaning appointment upon forty-eight (48) hours’ notice given to Client (via phone
or email). If SSR fails to give forty-eight (48) hour notice to Client of such cancellation of a scheduled cleaning
appointment, then, as its sole remedy, Client shall receive its next regularly scheduled SSR cleaning for free.
Termination of Agreement:
Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time upon no fewer than thirty (30) days’ written notice. If
Client terminates this Agreement before expiration of the initial or any subsequent term, then Client shall forfeit
any discount received from SSR. The difference between the regular price and the discounted price shall be due at
the next scheduled cleaning.
