Residential Service Cancellation Policy


Should you wish to skip or cancel any scheduled service appointment, please provide Focus Window Cleaning with a minimum of two business days (48 hours minimum) notice prior to your scheduled appointment. The following fees apply to Cancellations:

  • Over two business days notice (48 hours minimum) you will not be charged
  • Within two business days notice (48 hours) you will be charged 50% of your scheduled service
  • Within one business day notice (24 hours) you will be charged 100% of your scheduled service

Holds and Rescheduling

You may put your scheduled Home or Window Cleaning on hold without fee or penalty provided we are given Notice as described above.

Any cleaning contract or agreement service date put on hold with notice by the client for longer than 1 week from the initial agreed upon service date will be charged a First-Time Cleaning rate at the next cleaning.  If no further holds occur, the next cleaning will be charged at the initially agreed upon cleaning rate.

If the nature of your life or business requires flexibility in our services, let us know when signing up.


A Lockout is any occasion where we are unable to complete the full scope of a service work order due to not receiving access.

Lockouts may occur due to:

  • Access to the job site being restricted because:
    • Supplied keys do not work
    • The business is closed
    • We are refused entry at the time of service
  • Being limited in mobility due to other contractors working in the same area such as:
    • Painters painting the same rooms we’re contracted to clean
    • Carpet cleaners working in the same property
  • Reasonable access to areas to be cleaned being blocked by equipment or vehicles not included in the original job scope

Lockouts are charged the same as cancellations.

Repeated Cancellations

If repeated cancellations occur (with or without notice), we will stop guaranteeing that time slot and instead move the cleaning into a floating time slot.

Bedbugs and Pests Policy

Bedbug infestation can be a traumatic experience.

If your home has been invaded by bedbugs, you must let us know immediately.  We cannot risk spreading anything like bedbugs, so we will put a temporary hold on your cleaning service until you have had them professionally removed.  There are test kits available to confirm their removal which will usually be provided by the pest control company.
