We are HSH Cleaning Services, we’re thrilled you’ve decided to use our services, including, but not limited to, our technologies or functions offered on our website and all related sites, applications, customer service team, cleaners, and third-party vendors, all of which we refer to simply as the “Services.”
These Terms of Service (which we call the “Terms”) are just so you’ll know the rules that govern our relationship with you. Although we’ve done our best to strip the legalese from the Terms, there are places where these Terms may still read like a traditional contract. There’s a good reason for that: these Terms form a legally binding contract between you and HSH Cleaning Services, so please read them carefully.
By using the Services, you state that:
you can form a binding contract with HSH Cleaning Services;
you will comply with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations; and
you understand that HSH Cleaning is protected by relevant trademark and copyright laws. If you are using the Services on behalf of a business or some other entity, you also state that you are authorized to grant all licenses set forth in these Terms and to agree to these Terms on behalf of the business or entity.
A. Our Services Generally
HSH Cleaning agrees to provide you with the Services and you agree to pay the quoted price for the Services, unless otherwise agreed to in writing.
We strive to foster a safe environment for everyone. Our cleaning staff are employed, background checked, insured & bonded, and professionally trained. We reserve the right to remove our employees from your home should the environment be/become unsafe. That’s where you come in. By using the Services, you agree to assist in fostering a safe environment by: identifying fragile items and communicating this to our cleaner or our customer service team prior to the start of your cleaning appointment; accounting for and securing all valuables prior to the start of your cleaning appointment; notifying us of pets and, if necessary, placing them in designated enclosures that would not threaten our staff or impede our Services;
removing any biohazards, including, but not limited to, human bodily fluids, animal waste, rodent feces, live/dead insects, and sharp bio-products (needles, IV tubing, etc.); not requiring or requesting the lifting or moving of furniture or heavy items; and ensuring construction or renovation work (including touch-ups) has been completed, all contractors have left, and all equipment has been removed – prior to our arrival.
Due to H&S we don’t encourage our pros to lift any heavy furniture, lift any heavy sofas, climb stairs etc.
C. Cancellation Policy
We assess a $50 cancellation fee to appointments not cancelled by 3PM the day before the appointment, unless that clean is a specialty clean. For specialty cleans (including but not limited to post-construction/post-renovation cleans), a cancellation fee amounting to 50% of the price quoted for that specialty clean will be applied to appointments not cancelled by 3PM EST the day before the appointment.
To be clear, if you have a recurring service, you’ll still need to cancel an appointment before 3PM EST the day before any appointment to avoid a cancellation fee, but you may cancel any later future appointments with no additional fee.
Finally, please note that if our Services are provided under a separate written agreement with you, if any part of that agreement conflicts with these Terms, including a separate cancellation policy, that cancellation policy (and not this Section 2(C)) will apply to you.
D. Pricing and Discounts
HSH Cleaning may change the pricing and discounts of its Services (“Pricing or Discount Change”) in its sole discretion and at any time. Any Pricing or Discount Change will become effective immediately, unless stated otherwise.
Most of the time, Services booked before the time of the Pricing or Discount Change
(“Existing Services”) will retain the original pricing if no modifications are made to the Existing Services. Any modifications to the Existing Services will void the original pricing of the Existing Services and the price of the Existing Services will be subjected to the Pricing or Discount Change.
In the case that Existing Services are not modified but are nonetheless subject to a Pricing or Discount Change, HSH Cleaning will send an email advising the client of the Pricing or Discount Change. Failure to receive or save an email announcing the Pricing or Discount Change will not invalidate that Pricing or Discount Change.
Just so you know, accurate and up-to-date pricing will always be stated on your dashboard. Your continued use of the Services after the Pricing or Discount Change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the price modified by the Pricing or Discount Change. Our prices are transparent and available for you to view before booking your services. Company has right to review the price to extremely dirty properties.
There will be an additional surcharge applies to the public holiday cleans
D.1 Payment Process:
– You agree that at the time of Booking, your payment details will be transferred to HSH Cleaning’s secure payment gateway.
HSH Cleaning may check the availability of funds on your nominated payment method to ensure enough funds are available.
Upon the successful completion of your Service, you agree to the automatic debit of the Payment Amount to your nominated payment method. You must ensure that enough funds are available for debit at that time. Fees and charges relating to insufficient funds at time of debit will be passed onto you.
On receipt of the Payment Amount, HSH Cleaning will hold the Payment Amount on behalf of the Business until such time as they are remitted to the Business, refunded to you (if you are entitled to a refund) or transferred toHSH Cleaning in payment of our fees and charges.
HSH Cleaning will issue you with an invoice receipt. Your payments to HSH Cleaning are processed via an overseas gateway (Stripe)and from time to time, financial institutions or payment providers may charge an additional fee for transacting with HSH Cleaning. If this occurs, the HSH Cleaning customer care team, will at your request, arrange a refund for this fee.
D.2 Security of the Payment
We have taken all practical steps from both a technical and systems perspective to ensure that all your information is well protected. A secure payment gateway is used to process all transactions and credit card details. HSH Cleaning does not give any warranty or make any representation regarding the strength or effectiveness of the secure payment gateway and is not responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to your information.
HSH Cleaning customers with active accounts are eligible to earn up to $250 per year in account credits through the “Refer-A-Friend” program by referring new customers to HSH Cleaning. If you expect to accumulate credits more than $250, please contact us at email@example.com to arrange a special accommodation.
In addition, to qualify for this program, the referred customer (“Friend”) must provide the referral code of the referring customer (“Referring Customer”) at the time that the Friend books the appointment that they want to use the referral code on. Further, the Friend must: be a new customer; not be the roommate, spouse, or co-habitant of any existing HSH Cleaning customer and cannot be part of the same home or household of any existing HSH Cleaning customer; not book a clean in the same location as the Referring Customer’s location; not use the same billing information as the Referring Customer; not have the same phone number as the Referring Customer; and not create multiple email addresses, HSH Cleaning accounts, or any other aliases to take advantage of the Referring Customer’s referral code. Further, the Referring Customer must not post their code to a coupon site (e.g., retailmenot or anything similar). If HSH Cleaning discovers a code on such a site, we may immediately terminate your Refer-a-Friend Program privileges and void any and all previously accrued credits.
Credits are credited to the Referring Customer account only after the Friend has booked their appointment using the Referring Customer’s referral code and the Friend has paid for such appointment. Once received, credits may only be applied towards future appointments and cannot be retroactively applied to previous or existing appointments. Credits are not transferrable and are not redeemable for cash.
Credits and discounts will be removed if any of the conditions above are violated. Continued non-compliance with the Refer-a-Friend program will result in the permanent ban of the Services.
The value of any discount obtained through the Refer-a-Friend program and its credits are subject to change without prior notice
2) Solicitation of Our Cleaners and Employment Practices

Hiring our cleaners (current or those employed by HSH Cleaning within the previous 24 months) and/or offering/receiving side propositions while you’re using the Services for up to 18 months after your last appointment with HSH Cleaning makes you liable for a $1500 employment referral fee. By using our Services, you agree to notify us of any attempts to solicit or accept illegal services. If you breach this Section 3, attorney, legal, and miscellaneous expenses incurred to investigate and/or collect this fee will be added to your employment case when discovered.

Implication, complicity or withholding knowledge of illegal activity is not only prosecutable by HSH Cleaning. but also, generally under NZ law.
