EMPLOYEE NON-SOLICITATION AGREEMENT
VepoClean Home clients may not solicit our employees or former employees to be contracted or employed by you or your affiliates for services of any kind. If you would like to hire/contract one of our workers to work independently for you or your affiliates, you may submit your request by informing our office in writing. If VepoClean Home approves your request, you will be required to pay a $4,000 referral fee before our employee is released to work independently for you.
Please be advised that should there be a breech of this agreement this will result in litigation being initiated to recover damages suffered by VepoClean Home and the client will be responsible for all legal costs and expenses, including VepoClean Home attorney fees.
I have read the foregoing and acknowledge and agree that I will not solicit VepoClean Home employees or former employees to work for myself or any of my affiliates apart from working for VepoClean Home.
Because our daily schedule and commitments vary, we cannot guarantee the specific time of your appointment on your scheduled cleaning day. Your home will be serviced on a scheduled cleaning day from the hours of 8:30am – 5:30pm.
The Client understands and agrees that although VepoClean may send a notification of a scheduled ETA a day prior, unforeseen circumstances may affect said ETA and VepoClean might arrive to Client’s appointment at a time different than previously stated, sometimes significantly. VepoClean will make best effort to communicate such changes to Client as they arise.
Furthermore, staffing your service is up to VepoClean discretion and is contingent on employee availability.
WEEKLY, BI-WEEKLY, & MONTHLY PLANS
By choosing one of our periodic plans at booking, Client automatically confirms all future appointments
that correspond to chosen cycle, starting with the initial appointment. Plan cycles are as follows:
- Weekly – every 7 days
- Bi-Weekly – every 14 days
- Monthly – every 28 days
Plans can be changed or cancelled at any time. Any individual appointment rescheduling or cancellation must adhere to cancellation/rescheduling policy below.
CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING & NON-ENTRY POLICY
We understand that there are times when you might need to cancel, reschedule, or change your cleaning appointment. We ask that you give us 24 business hours advance notice to cancel, reschedule or change your appointment.

**If you cancel, reschedule or change your appointment after 6pm the day prior of your scheduled appointment
, you will incur a $45 late fee.

VepoClean Home only accepts payment via credit card. We gladly accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. The client has authorized VepoClean Home to bill all services performed one day prior to the cleaning appointment on the credit card that has been provided by the client.
The client understands that all credit card payments are processed one day prior to their scheduled cleaning appointment. Should VepoClean Home not be able to process a client’s credit card payment one day prior to the day of the cleaning, the client’s account will be subject to a $15.00 late payment fee.

While we’re happy to help our clients with laundry, we’re only capable to spend time on laundry commensurate with the time spent on your apartment cleaning. A maximum of one (1) load will be washed, dried, and folded for clothes or one (1) load of bed sheets and linens will be washed and dressed on bed during any regular cleaning.
Please be aware that due to the delicate nature of this service, VepoClean Home does not assume responsibility for any laundry damages. As a precaution, we advise that you presort your laundry and that you do not include delicate or dry clean only items in your laundry bags. By providing only sheets and towels for this service this drastically reduces the possibility for laundry damages.
Additionally, the client understands that laundry services will add an additional charge. We require that you provide all laundry detergent. Please leave presorted laundry and all laundry supplies in a clearly visible area.

PROPERTY DAMAGE POLICY
VepoClean stands not only for top-notch quality and utmost care for our Clients and their homes, but on the notion of highest integrity and values. Therefore, our internal policy and culture assures we are 100% transparent with our Clients including per any accidents or incidents that occur during cleaning. Our process and internal policy obliges Teams to report any and all accidents, so that we can proactively remediate them with our Clients. Should any information be brought to us about a damaged item by someone other than our staff, we reserve the right to investigate the matter thoroughly, including, but not limited to conducting interviews to make the final determination based on any reasonable facts or evidence. Should there be no sensible or otherwise evidence-based reason to conclude that our team was involved in causing the damage, such claim will be denied..
SUPPLIES & EQUIPMENT
VepoClean Home cleaning consultants arrive equipped with all cleaning products and tools manufactured by eco-friendly, socially responsible companies. We require that you supply laundry detergent, if we perform laundry service, and/or if you would like to use any product that you prefer, we would be happy to do so, as per your instruction.
Upon completion of the cleaning, we will not empty your dishwasher unless:
- It is specifically requested by you; AND
- The wash cycle is completed prior to our departure
Do not leave any items that are NOT dishwasher safe or are not to be washed in the machine in the sink.
Our standard office hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. We welcome your calls.
FOUL WEATHER POLICY
In the event an VepoClean Home employee cannot clean your home due to extreme weather conditions, although we are unable to issue a refund we will gladly reschedule your appointment to the next available cleaning day. In most cases your appointment will be rescheduled within 1-2 days after the original appointment date.
Employee safety is important to us. We require our employees to wear shoes at all times, refrain from climbing ladders higher than 30″, or lift objects weighting more than 20 pounds. We do not clean bodily fluids, pet accidents or any other substances that may pose a health or safety hazard to our employees. VepoClean Home reserves the right to remove an employee from a job site at any time if safety is of concern or if integrity is in question.
Due to the health risks associated with the inhalation of soot, VepoClean Home does not clean soot from fireplaces. We will gladly clean around the fireplace. Should you require fireplace cleaning, VepoClean Home can suggest a reputable company to assist you.
We understand that window cleaning can be a very important part of having a thorough cleaning. Window cleaning is not a typical daily cleaning task and is considered an add-on service. Windows can often become jammed and very hard to open. Hard to open windows can be very dangerous for our cleaning consultants. To assist in our employee’s safety we ask that you examine your windows prior to a window cleaning to ensure that your windows can be easily opened. As old and jammed windows can easily come off track or be damaged when performing inside and out window cleanings, VepoClean Home does not take responsibility for windows damaged during window cleaning services.
We proudly stand behind our work. Should you have any comments regarding your cleaning, please call us within 24 hours after the end of your cleaning appointment. If there are areas that you feel we have overlooked, we ask that you do not clean those areas yourself, as we will have someone report to your home within 24 hours to re-clean the areas of concern. While we are unable to issue refunds, if necessary, we are happy to re-clean any areas of concern.
