If we are responsible for damages to your home or items in your home, we will leave a note for you and place a follow up call.

We make every attempt to repair, replace or pay for any items that we have damaged.

We will assume no liability for items not secured in a proper manner (example: heavy pictures hanging from thumb tacks, not anchored properly to walls, etc., pre-existing damages, scratches, dings in windows, paint, furniture, floors, walls, etc. Items of monetary or sentimental value should be put away on the day of cleaning and/or cleaned by home owner.

All surfaces (i.e.: Marble, Granite, hardwood floors, etc) are assumed to be sealed and ready to be cleaned without causing harm/damage when common cleaners are used.

Release of Liability

Should you decide you would like us to clean items of monetary or sentimental value, items within curio cabinets, etc., the following will apply:

Client hereby releases Ferndale Cleaning Services

from all liability arising out of cleaning these item(s), and the client understands that he/she is completely responsible for repairing or replacing any damaged item(s), even if an employee of Ferndale Cleaning Services may have caused the need for repair or replacement.


For our protection and yours, in the unlikely event that you have firearms we ask that they be stored and locked away prior to our cleaning your home.

We will not clean any rooms in which a firearm is visibly present.

Wear & Tear

The longer we live in our homes, the more wear and tear builds up in it. Baseboards, bottom of showers and tubs, mold/mildew, excessive water spots and soap scum on glass shower doors, worn flooring (wood floors may need to be refinished) grout lines, window tracks, etc. are all areas where wear and tear will have an outcome on the final look of the cleaning.

These areas may take more than one cleaning to improve in appearance or may not come clean at all.

While we do offer to dust your blinds, excessive build up on blinds and shutters may require that you contact a professional blind cleaning company. We cannot be held liable for blinds/shutters, etc. that do not come 100% clean.


It is important for us to have access to every area of your home that we will be cleaning. In doing so, we need to work freely and without distractions. Excessive visiting with your maid (beyond cleaning instructions) prevents them from being 100% focused.

Every effort is made to work safely and cautiously and we cannot assume liability for injury to others.

In order to prevent safety hazards (tripping over buckets, caddies, vacuum cords, etc.),

we kindly ask that you, your children and pets remain out of the rooms that we are cleaning.

You may return once we are finished.

InsectsInsect infestation can be a problem and may prevent us from completely cleaning your home. If an infestation of ants, termites, roaches, fleas, etc., are encountered, we will not clean or vacuum the area.

Please do not expect us to clean up dead insects that you've sprayed (i.e. ants, etc.). We will leave you a note or call you regarding the problem.


Our employees are very important to us, and we are very serious about keeping them safe, so they do not climb higher than a 2-step ladder, move anything heavier than 35 lbs, or clean up vomit, blood, urine or excrement.

These types of activities put our employees at risk of an injury or infection.

Please remove soiled bed linens before we arrive. We will replace with clean linen that has been left on the end of the bed. We are also unable to wash exterior windows or clean carpets; however, we can gladly refer you to a professional.

If you would like us to clean behind appliances like a refrigerator, oven or large sofa, please move it prior to the cleaning to allow access to the desired area.

If an employee feels that their personal safety is in danger (someone in the home is intoxicated, vicious animal not contained, etc.), and the employee leaves the job site, the client is still responsible for the full cost of the job. We will attempt to reach you by phone if this situation should arise.Release of Liability
