Frequency

We will quote you a price on the frequency that you choose. If there is a change, we will contact you with the rates for approval.

Service Day

Typically your service day will be the same from visit to visit. If you need to cancel or skip your service for any reason, we need notice before 5 PM the day before — Our schedules are finalized each day at 5:00 PM for the next day’s service. If your service day is Monday, a skip or change must be communicated before 5:00 PM on the Friday BEFORE.

In the event we need to change your service day, we may have to schedule later in the week and will contact you.

Invoicing

Billing for all services is invoiced/charged 24 hours following the time the service was rendered.

Declined Cards

If your payment declines, we will try the card again the day before your next scheduled cleaning visit or for the next 30 days. If the payment is declined a second time, we will need to cancel future services until the card is updated.

Late Fee

If an account is more than 30 days past due, a late fee will be accessed. Multiple attempts to contact the customer will be made prior to accessing a late fee.

Collections

After a customer account has been delinquent for 30 days, services will be paused. Once paused, the customer will not receive any future service. The account record and delinquent balance are then passed on to a third party collection agency. Reactivation of the customer’s account past the 30 day period will require paying the one-time service reactivation fee.

Disabled Account

Hoover Maids charges a $50.00 late fee for accounts 31 days past due.

Chargebacks

If a customer initiates a chargeback, Hoover Maids will suspend the account until the matter is resolved. Chargebacks to avoid payment will result in a $75 fee to the customer.

Refunds

Hoover Maids does not issue refunds unless received during the money back guarantee period. Account credits will be issued as a result of an error in billing or services rendered.

Cancellations

All cancellations must be made verbally through a Hoover Maids account representative. The representative will email you a cancellation form. Once complete your account will be immediately closed. Completion of the form is required to ensure we have your permission to close your account. Upon completion, you will receive a dated confirmation email for your records. Email cancellations are not accepted for security reasons (such as fraudulent cancellations). All cancellations will take effect upon completion of the online cancellation form.

Canceling a credit card does not constitute a cancellation.

Canceled accounts with balances must be settled in full before the account will be permanently closed.

Once you cancel your account you will not be charged again.
