Throughout our initial inspection of your property or after an attempt at cleaning has been done, there are sometimes areas of a home that cannot be solved. These cases are rare, but unfortunately can happen. If this does happen, our Bond Back Guarantee does not apply. We will inform you immediately in these cases.
The areas that can cause issues include, but are not limited to the following:
- permanent carpet stains
- permanent hard water stains
- permanent wall marks
- old grease stains
Bond Cleaning Exclusions
There are few things we do not cover in our bond cleaning service as follows:
- Curtains or fabric blinds
- Areas outside of normal reach or that may be inaccessible
- Ceiling, ceiling fans, light fixtures, or windows
- Windows with fly screens attached
- The internals of washing machines / dryers
- Appliances that require disassembly
- Garage walls
- Our team would do our very best to clean the mould. However, some mould can be imbedded into silicon, grout and other areas. These areas will require a specialist to restore it back to a normal state.
- Discoloration can happen sometimes with normal wear and tear of the property. These include grout, plastics and toilet can discolor (often in a yellow color)
- Tile and Natural Rock stains :
- Some of the stains might not be able to be completely removed from tiles or benchtops which made with natural rock (some being extremely porous). This will require a specialist to remove it.
- Complete Wall Clean
- We do spot cleaning of walls for insect marks or stains. However, a complete wall clean requires more time and it doesn’t often lead to better results. A full wall clean is only required if marks exist beyond normal ‘wear and tear’.
- Hazardous or dangerous areas
- Cracked or broken power point, dangerous light fitting, rubbish, bio waste and any other areas which deemed to be a hazardous cleaning situation.
- Our cleaners do not clean at heights. Any cleaning that requires a ladder will not be performed. For instance, external windows of a unit on the second floor.
- Specialist services:
- Any area which requires special cleaning equipment or skilled technician to carry out the service. For instance, pressure cleaning (grease on the driveway or garage floor).
- Additional Items:
- Any items not listed in the services inclusion list will not be cleaned, such as Fridge, Blinds and so on. Unless this is agreed upon by both parties in writing.
