Terms and Conditions
By accepting these terms it will be assumed the client has read, understands, and agrees to the terms listed. The client agrees to be the party responsible for full payment, communication, upholding this agreement and satisfaction guarantee procedures. Third party involvement is not recognized by Dazzle Cleaning Service. These terms are subject to change without notice.
Our Technicians do not handle payments. Payments are due the day of service. A card on file is required to reserve an appointment with Dazzle Cleaning Service. The client assumes responsibility for ensuring the card on file is up to date and received prior to the appointment. Appointments are not guaranteed until an active card is on file. Returned or declined payments are subject to a $35 fee and a late fee if applicable, and subsequent cleanings will be postponed until payments are made in full, risking the loss of your ‘regular’ schedule.
Deposit: A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve an appointment for an Initial Cleaning, 1-Time cleaning, a Top to Bottom or Move-In/Out cleaning package. The deposit will be deducted from the cost of services provided on the scheduled date. We require 24 business hours notice to reschedule your appointment and transfer your deposit. Rescheduling cleanings cannot be guaranteed and are subject to availability.
Due Date: Payment is due on the date of the scheduled service. A 10% late fee is applied to all overdue invoices. Late payment charges do not include charges imposed upon acceleration of the entire debt or costs of collection and attorney fees as otherwise permitted by law. Past Due invoices are forwarded to the attorney for collection and/or legal action on the 7th day past due.
Gratuity: is always appreciated by our technicians, but is never required. 10-20% is considered industry standard for cleaning services. If you choose to tip your technician, please be sure any tip can be clearly identified as such by the technician, or call our office to have it added to your cleaning fee (feel free to leave a note that you’ve done so). Tips will be evenly split between any teams who may be assigned to your home.
Pricing changes: We reserve the right to change estimates and/or correct errors on our online pricing and promotions or if we see that your home’s circumstances are not typical or not as described during initial intake, or have changed (adding additional people or pets to your household, remodeling projects etc.). We also reserve the right to correct typos and errors on our ads.
Labor Hours: are based on the accurate assessment of the condition of the home. If we find discrepancies with the description of the home provided or that the home requires more cleaning than agreed upon due to construction, events, changes within the home, overdue air filters, or any other unforeseen conditions, we may call the client for approval of the additional time required. If unable to contact client and client did not pre-approve additional time, Dazzle Cleaning Service will complete cleaning within the approved timeframe and the quality may be compromised. You will never be charged over and above what we’ve agreed upon without your permission.
Rate Increases: We reserve the right to raise our rates at any time. You will be given advance notice of a price increase.
Business hours/service times: Dazzle Cleaning Service operates between the hours of 8:00am-5:30pm Eastern Time, Monday-Friday. Very rarely can we accommodate nights or weekends. Due to unforeseen circumstances outside our control, an exact time of arrival is not guaranteed, we do our best to offer a 4 hour window.
Closed: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, and Christmas. Should your cleaning fall on any of these holidays, we will do all we can to reschedule your cleaning, but cannot be guaranteed. If staffing is available on these holidays, we will fill the schedule on a first come first serve basis, so please let us know if you still want to be cleaned on a holiday. A client may choose to skip a cleaning that falls on a holiday, and fees mentioned in these terms may apply.
Late Notice Cancellation/Reschedule: Skips or rescheduling are subject to a 60% fee if your request is given with less than 24 business hours. This fee will be deducted from the clients deposit or charged to the card on file. Availability can not be guaranteed for rescheduling. All communications received outside of normal business hours will be considered received at time of opening the next business day.
Vacations: Please inform us anytime you don’t plan to return home the same day we clean. We realize it’s tempting to skip service while you’re on vacation; however we ask that you consider keeping your scheduled appointment. This is a perfect time for us to work on a special project for you, or catch up on any build up by deep cleaning an area or two around your home. It also will eliminate the extra build up that will occur if you skip your cleaning. Additionally, our technician’s appreciate when interruptions to their schedule/income are kept to a minimum.
Skipped Cleaning: If a client chooses to skip a scheduled cleaning appointment, a Skipped Cleaning fee of $20 will be applied for each additional week that transpires between the skipped cleaning appointment date and the following cleaning appointment date. This fee will be incorporated into the subsequent service invoice. (Example: A weekly client calls in advance to skip an appointment, an additional fee of $20 will be applied to the next cleaning to account for the extra time needed to bring your space back to the levels of cleanliness you’re accustomed to).
To avoid incurring the Skipped Cleaning fee, clients have the option to request a rescheduled cleaning with a notice of more than 24 business hours in advance of the scheduled cleaning. When such notice is provided, the Skipped Cleaning fees will be waived. The client will resume their regular cleaning schedule, following the rescheduled session. Rescheduling is subject to availability and not guaranteed. All communications received outside of normal business hours will be considered received at time of opening the next business day.
No Notice Cancellation/Skips/Lack of access: A fee of 100% will apply for any last minute cancellations. This includes any appointment scheduled where our team is turned away, the property is not accessible due to key issues, doors locked, codes not working, snow/ice covered driveways/walkways) and/or Dazzle Cleaning Service’s staff is en route to the scheduled cleaning. This fee is to cover the loss of wages for our cleaning technicians, travel expenses and the time reserved for your cleaning on the schedule. If the property is inaccessible upon our arrival, it will be deemed a No Notice Cancellation 15 minutes after we reach your location and have attempted to establish contact. All communications received outside of normal business hours will be considered received at time of opening the next business day.
Inclement weather events: While rare, we do live in Michigan so if it is not safe to travel and/or carry equipment and supplies to your home we may, at our discretion, skip that cleaning. When this occurs, we will try to reschedule. Please assist us with your understanding in rescheduling. We will make every effort to determine that day’s schedule based on the weather by 9:00 am, but some last-minute schedule changes due to weather may occur. If we close due to weather we will post updates on our FaceBook page as soon as possible. We do not follow any school district closing.
All appointment changes must be requested through the Client Portal or by calling or texting Dazzle Cleaning Service directly at 231-920-9000 during business hours.

We cannot take responsibility for such items, or items damaged as a result of sliding, tipping or falling. Please consider carefully and let us know if your home contains any of these or similar hazards that may surprise an unsuspecting cleaning technician.

As business owners, we take responsibility for our employees and their actions. Our guidelines are designed to minimize risks, not avoid responsibility. We will personally review any unresolved incident to ensure the fairest resolution possible. You are a valued customer and we wish to resolve any incident to your satisfaction.
