Terms And Conditions

Booking a service on-line doesn’t guarantee you a spot for that date/time, you will be contacted by email or phone with a confirmation.

Cleaning Providers

Our providers have been properly vetted prior to onboarding with us. They have been background checked and are properly insured. You can rest assured all of our providers have integrity and are held accountable.

Right to Refuse Service

We reserve the right to deny &/or terminate service because of safety concerns, inappropriate or uncomfortable situations, weapons on-premises, severe clutter & disconnected utilities. By using this website to book a service, you agree to comply with these terms & conditions. If you do not agree to these terms & conditions, it is recommended that you do not book a service with us. Our providers have the choice to leave if the home is in an extremely unsanitary condition or if they feel unsafe/threatened. If you book a cleaning that is unreasonable, the cleaners may refuse service on the spot & you will be charged the cancellation fee.

Cleaning Day Preparation

Your price for cleaning is based on the cleaners focusing all of their time on cleaning, we ask that you take a few minutes to tidy up to allow the cleaners easy access to the areas/surfaces to be cleaned: floors, counter-tops, tabletops, etc. If you’d like our cleaners to do these tasks for you, call the office in advance so your cleaning fee can be adjusted for the additional time.

Add-On Services

These services are available for an extra charge:
  • Heavy-duty cleaning
  • Wet wipe/detail blinds
  • Clean inside oven
  • Clean inside fridge
  • Full wall wash
  • Interior Windows
  • Laundry & Folding
  • Dishes
  • Inside Cabinets


We will gladly work around pets, we ask that indoor activity is limited for cleaning efficiency & safety reasons, if your pet becomes anxious or presents a safety concern, GTA Home Cleaning reserves the right to remove its providers from your home. Our providers are instructed not to enter a house if they believe an animal is a threat, pets may behave differently if a family member is not present. If the removal of our cleaning provider is due to aggressive pets, our cancellation policy will apply.

Service Fees

Please remember we give these instant prices based on years of experience, but we may adjust the price based on the actual condition of the house. To ensure there are no surprises when we arrive & find that the job will require extra time we’ll call you to let you know. If we are unable to reach you, the provider will have to leave & you will be charged the cancellation fee. We reserve the right to reevaluate rates at any time based on the time it takes to perform our service to meet the client’s standards. GTA Home Cleaning will contact the client to discuss price or service revisions if the cleaning time differs significantly.


Payments are made by credit card only. Cards will not be charged until AFTER the appointment is completed.

Refund Policy

We do not offer refunds, we have built our business providing our clients with the best possible service available, still, we realize that we are human, things will from time to time get missed, should this happen email or call us within 24 hours & we will correct the error at no charge.

Recurring Service Discount

Recurring discounts start AFTER the first cleaning service, if you skip cleanings so that your cleaning’s frequency is lower than what you were set up for, your price will be increased to the pricing level for the lower frequency

Rate Increases

Client’s cleaning rate adjustments may be made at any time during the year should there be changes to the frequency of the client’s established service schedule or home or living situation: remodel, change of address, number of people living in the home, a significant addition of furniture, etc. The customer’s rate shall be increased annually, by an amount not-to-exceed 10% of the client’s current rate.


The client shall make the service location accessible to GTA Home Cleaning providers on the scheduled service day. If the team is locked out of the Client’s home, every effort will be made to establish contact with the Client to arrange for entry into the home. If contact is not made within 30 minutes of the arrival of the cleaning team, the scheduled cleaning will be skipped & you will be charged a “same day cancellation” fee of the full price for the booking. This is necessary to compensate the providers for unexpected lost revenue & time travel, to avoid the full charge, provide us with a key or code to gain entry to your home.


Service reliability is extremely important because we reserve a time, especially for you, we request that you give us a minimum of 24 Hrs. advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule for any reason to avoid incurring a $50 cancellation fee. Please note that if service is canceled with less than 24 hours notice, OR we are unable to access the home upon arrival, OR we are turned away at the door, a “same day cancellation” or lockout fee of the full price for the booking will be charged to the credit card on file.


If your home is equipped with a security system, please ensure that it is in the off position or call our office with the code & proper directions for use. If the code should change please let us know so you do not incur a lockout charge.

Use of Homeowner’s Vacuum

If you request to use your vacuum, we will not assume or accept any liability for damage to the unit. Since we are not responsible for the maintenance of the vacuum, we will not be responsible for any repairs to it. This is important because if the vacuum is not in working order when we arrive to clean your home, we will not be able to perform any vacuuming of carpet & hard floor surfaces.

Cleaning Supplies

We provide the equipment & products needed to thoroughly clean your home, if you require us to use green cleaning products only, please let us know before we start the service. If you require us to use your cleaning supplies, note that we are not responsible for any damage associated with those products. When this request is made we ask that you have the cleaning chemicals & supplies ready so we can perform our cleaning service as efficiently as possible.

Restrictions and Items NOT Covered

We have a 30lb weight limit for safety reasons. Moving smaller items like dining table chairs, small ottomans etc to clean under is perfectly ok. If you would like any heavier furniture or appliances cleaned under, you're welcome to move it and cleaners will be happy to clean under it upon request.

There is a limit to a 2-level step stool MAXIMUM. Safety is of the utmost importance to us. Please keep in mind that in most cases, the tops of standard kitchen cupboards are the maximum limit of height. Some lighting fixtures may also be out of reach.

Power & Water Access:
Our cleaners require access to power for use of vacuums and other tools needed to clean your home in its entirety. Our cleaners also require access to water for washing and properly cleaning/ rinsing alongside their solutions and products to ensure a complete and proper job. IF either or both are not accessible at the time of your cleaning, we will have to forfeit your service and you will be charged the same day cancellation/ lockout fee.

Cluttered areas will be worked around to the best of the cleaners ability. The same goes for areas used for storage, like underneath beds and on top of cabinets.

Pet Mess/ Bodily Fluids:
This includes but is not limited to litter boxes, pet messes, bird guano, blood, feces, urine, vomit, and overflowed toilets. Cleaning bodily fluids (including that of furry friends) is something the cleaners do not do as it requires specific cleaning methods and training beyond the scope of what a residential cleaner can provide.

Some amount of pink/ orange mildew or even darker mold is common in some homes. Don't worry- the cleaners can clean small amounts of mold. Large amounts of mold in shower areas, on walls, etc can affect air quality and pose a health safety issue. The cleaners are not able to clean in rooms that are heavily affected by mold, or in homes with mold infestations.

We apologize that we arent able to offer post-fumigation cleanings. We ask that any bug infestations or fumigation clean-ups are completed in their entirety before the cleaners can enter a home.

The soot/ ash from the inside of a fireplace will damage equipment, especially vacuums. However, cleaning off the base in front of the fireplace is no issue at all.

We have a 30lb weight limit for safety reasons. Moving smaller items like dining table chairs, small ottomans etc to clean under is perfectly ok. If you would like any heavier furniture or appliances cleaned under, you're welcome to move it and cleaners will be happy to clean under it upon request.

Carpet Cleaning:
We do not offer carpet cleaning services as it requires specialized equipment.

Other Items we do not clean:
dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, inside of heat registers, anything requiring disassembly to clean or cleaning inside/ underneath your hood fan.

If there is something you do not see on this list, please feel free to ask!
