Cleaning Services Agreement

Other Names:

A Cleaning Services Agreement is also known as:

  • Maid Service Agreement
  • Cleaning Services Contract
  • Housekeeping Agreement
  • Residential Cleaning Services Contract
  • Janitorial Services Contract

What is a Cleaning Services Agreement?

A Cleaning Services Agreement is a contract made between a home owner, office manager, realtor, or building management company and an individual or company providing professional cleaning services. The agreement establishes the terms and conditions of the arrangement between the cleaning service and the client.

Independent housekeepers and janitors can use a cleaning services contract to help them set up new clients, and specifically perform only the services written into the agreement.

Why do I need a Cleaning Services Agreement?

You can use a housekeeping agreement to let your client communicate their expectations for what types of cleaning they want done, and what level of service and detail should be provided for each cleaning task.

For example, they may only need their furniture vacuumed every two weeks if they live alone; but if they own a dog or a cat, they may want you to vacuum their furniture at least twice a week. Certain furniture may require particular cleaning methods or materials.

A cleaning services contract can be used to schedule a recurring housekeeping service (weekly, monthly, etc.) or a single annual event like a carpet cleaning or a thorough home spring cleaning. A maid service typically charges an hourly rate, so it's a good idea for the client to clearly lay out the work they want done during your visit.

Also, certain times of day may be more suitable than others. In some cases, like cleaning a house on the day of its sale, the housekeeping job may be subject to strict time limits. These are all good reasons why the terms of your agreement should be written down.

If you are a small business owner, you can use a janitorial services contract to employ one or more janitors to come to your workplace after regular business hours and perform cleaning duties like trash collection and washroom disinfecting and cleaning.

If you are a freelance maid or janitor, you can use a cleaning services contract to manage your clients and maintain your self-employment records. Offering a properly drafted legal document assures your prospective client of your professional credentials and ensures you are legally protected in the event of a dispute over payment.

What information is included in a Cleaning Services Agreement?

A Cleaning Services Agreement typically contains the following items:

  • If the cleaning service will be a regularly-scheduled or one-time job
  • The location and time of day for the cleaning service to arrive
  • Contact information for the cleaning service and the client
  • Payment details: hourly rate, if a deposit is required, and when the cleaning service will be paid
  • Who will provide the necessary cleaning equipment and consumables

Related Documents:

  • Independent Contractor Agreement: a contract used between a client and a self-employed contractor to agree on terms for a provided service
  • Catering Services Agreement: a contract between a caterer and a client to cater for single events like parties or weddings, or regular meal provision such as office luncheons
