CUSTOMER AND EMPLOYEE RELATIONSHIPS
When a client enters into an agreement or books any services with Lusso Clean, the client understands that they will pay a [$100,000] training fee to Lusso Clean if they engage in a working relationship directly with any employee of Lusso Clean. Customers are not allowed at any time to exchange information with any of our team members for any reason. Employees are not to seek employment or similar competing job opportunities from customers. If you the customer enjoy the service, you may request monthly recurring services with the same cleaner. However, if this behavior is found all necessary actions will take place including the termination of employment and fines due to Lusso Clean will be sought after.
Client acknowledges and agrees that the employees of Lusso Clean who perform the services are a valuable asset to Lusso Clean and are difficult to replace. Client shall not solicit, whether directly or indirectly, the employment of any Lusso Cleans employees without the prior written consent of the company. Client agrees and recognizes that Lusso Clean does not tolerate client and employee relationships and will take legal action against the client if this occurs. If the Client violates this Section, the parties agree that Client shall pay to Lusso Clean the sum of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) as liquidated damages. The parties further agree that precise monetary damages for Client's violation of this Section would be difficult to ascertain and that the foregoing sum represents a fair and conservative approximation of the cost of recruitment, hiring, and training that would be incurred by Lusso Clean.
If for any reason during the cleaning a cleaner of Lusso Clean feels that their safety is in danger enough to leave the job site due to actions by the client, members of the family, client’s guests or animals, the client will be liable for the full cost of the service. All workers are trained to walk behind customers at all times during all tours for their safety, customers are asked to honor this rule. If the customer insists to walk behind the worker, cancellation of service may be granted to the cleaner if safety is the concern. Once cancellation is granted by a supervisor the customer will be charged a $60.00 cancelation fee. If the home is large enough and requires more than one cleaner, customers are not allowed to walk alone with one cleaner during tours, instead, both cleaners must take both tours before and after the job is completed. Cleaners must beware of one another’s location at all times. Each cleaner is required to be able to hear the voice of their coworker at least 5 to 10 minutes in between cleaning areas of the home. This will result in frequent name-calling throughout the service being provided. This is highly recommended by our training team if there are only two cleaners in a home larger than 2,000 square feet.
RESPECTING PERSONAL SPACE
Customers are asked not to follow our cleaners around during the performance period. Although they are professionals, they are human beings with emotions and may become nervous because of these actions. If you are walking around your home inspecting your home while they are working this can cause them to become emotionally distracted and ultimately cause them to do a poor job. Checking up on their work and asking them questions such as "Have you cleaned this area, or have you cleaned that? " is not tolerated at Lusso Clean. All customers are allowed up to 20 minutes to take a final tour around the home at the end of the completed service. If any area was not fully cleaned or was forgotten the tour is the time to point it out not during the cleaning. If our office is notified that this type of behavior is taking place after the first notice, we will immediately cancel the cleaning and you will be charged full price. We valued the well-being of both you and our team and believe in positive business.
THE ROAMING CUSTOMER
We ask that all members of the home either leave the home until the cleaning is complete or stay in one room or area of the entire home. This allows the cleaners to clean without distractions, also it allows the cleaner to know what was cleaned and what wasn’t. If your family is roaming the house, they are more than likely to track dirt and dust along with them back to the area that was cleaned. Wet floors are at no time allowed to be stepped on if this happens the cleaner will not go over the same spot. Our cleaners are trained not to go over the same places if they have cleaned it already. If the cleaner is mopping the floor and your child is running around your child is more than likely going to slip and fall. Therefore, to keep you and your family safe and to allow the cleaner to provide a good service we ask that these rules be followed. If these are not met during your cleaning after the first notice, your service will be canceled immediately, and you will be charged in full.
RESPECTING THE CUSTOMER
To avoid any mishaps or unwanted encounters we strongly encourage our team to respect customers' space and contact with the body. Same goes for cleaners’ personal space, we ask all customers to keep a respectful distance between you and the cleaner. This protects both you, the cleaner, and Lusso Clean from unwanted legal actions. Employees are not allowed to hug customers only shake hands if the customer allows. All workers and cleaners when visiting homes are to walk at a respectful distance behind or beside the customer while they are taking their tours. If the stairways are narrow allow the customer to walk ahead of you at least 4-5 feet.
We operate in love and peace because that’s the way we believe works best. If you are not feeling well and believe you will feel better another day, please reschedule with us. We care about our customer's well-being as well as ours and would not like our team to receive the backlash from an upset customer. If you believe your service is being provided incorrectly, please contact us and we will fix the issue immediately. However please treat our workers with the respect they provide you. If at any time our team or a member of our team is being rude or isn't providing the service we claim to have, please call us at (202) 996-5665 with the name and department of that person and you will receive a partial refund based on the information provided.
PETS AND CHILDREN IN THE HOME
The cleaners need to be able to work without distractions. Every effort is made for the cleaners to work safely, but we cannot assume liability for the safety of others while cleaning your home. This includes children and pets. In the event the cleaners are not able to work without distractions that affect their ability to work at their normal speed, Lusso Clean reserves the right to charge for their extra time spent in the client’s home.
CHILDREN OF OUR CUSTOMERS
Children are to remain with the parent or guardian at all times during the cleaning. If the customer is a loyal customer with recurring services, this may not be as easy to follow if the maids are around at specific times of the day. However, we strongly recommend keeping the children in one room or one area of the home with you while the cleaning is being provided. This is in place to protect your child from harm caused by chemicals or freak accidents during cleaning or any other service.
CANCELLATIONS DUE TO NEGLECT
Our team members are friendly and loving however they are not professionally trained in childcare. It is your responsibility as the legal guardian to protect the child in all situations. Please do not leave your child alone with or in the hands of a cleaner male or female. If this situation occurs our office will be notified, and we will cancel your cleaning after the first notice and all future appointments. We will also charge you in full for the cleaning. We are dedicated to the safety of all children and will not tolerate abuse nor neglect.
PETS OF OUR CUSTOMERS
All pets or service animals must be put away during your cleaning. If you must stay in your home while the service is being provided, please know that your pet or service dog will need to be with you at all times. This protects both our team, you, and your pet from any unwanted encounters. If the team member feels comfortable around the pet or service animal, this does not change our policy. Pets are a huge distraction to cleaners and will cause additional cleaning to be done including additional sweeping and vacuuming caused by hair shedding. Birds and other animals with open cages must be put away and into a room to avoid contact with chemicals
CANCELLATIONS DUE TO NEGLECT
Leaving your pets unattended may lead to death caused by contact with chemicals. Unlike the neglect of children, we will not cancel your service, however, we will provide a one-time warning and cancel if our policy is broken the second time. We are looking out for the safety of our team and your pet, please work with us to do so.
If customers cancel within 2 days of their service there will be a $50 non-refundable cancelation fee applied. This charge can not be refunded however if the customer decides to reschedule we will hold the charge and apply it to the new service day.
If you do not own a vacuum cleaner we will sweep your carpets, we do not provide commercial vacuums for occupied homes. Our goal is to reduce the spread of bed bugs in homes and they travel in vacuum cleaners. If you are not moving out of your home we will not vacuum using our cleaner. If you would like your home vacuumed please purchase your own and provide it to the cleaner.
We operate a very honest and close-knit company; therefore, we will not tolerate the dishonesty of customers. Please be honest with the size of your home by providing us with the correct square footage. We take the responsibility of searching your home online using the address provided. Please do not ask our cleaners to do any extra work that you did not pay for, instead ask to add to the cleaning. If you would like to add another service to your cleaning and the cleaner does not have enough time. You may book another cleaning for another day. Take your time and navigate our site, learn which services are included and which are considered add ons.
ITEMS ON THE FLOORS
Our cleaners are not responsible for picking up items off the floor. This practice adds more time to the job its self. If your home is not being organized our team will clean around the items as much as they can without moving or picking items up. We ask all customers to pick up the things to allow the floors to be cleaned, pick up children toys, pick up your clothes, shoes, papers, and other miscellaneous items allowing the cleaner to clean freely. If you have issues organizing, you may request an organizing service by booking online.
BILLS, COINS, BANK CARDS AND WALLETS
We will be notified of these types of items if they are being neglected around the home. We ask all customers to collect all such items before the service begins. This is our policy and if such items are found and reported we will contact you about the items or monies. Larger bills and noticeably opened wallets will be identified as a trap and will be addressed before future bookings. We reserve the right to cancel all memberships of paying customers and any customer relationship we find could become a liability or dishonest relationship. All bills found will be capture by photo and will remain in the same place. Also, all coins will be collected and placed in an open area captured by photo evidence and provided to you for proof.
We reserve the right to spread out a service if the time to complete it takes longer than the original window. Larger add ons including window cleaning, carpet cleaning, and odor removal are subject to be extended if the time to complete them exceeds 4 hours on a basic cleaning day.
