Commercial Policy

Thank you for choosing A L R Cleaning dba (re)FRESH cleaning!  We value and appreciate your business. For both the protection of our clients and our company, please read the following Policies and Terms.

Cleaning supplies and equipment are supplied by (re)FRESH Cleaning. We ask that you provide your own vacuum cleaner. However, if you do not have one, we can provide one at an additional $10/use fee.

For garbage removal, all cardboard must be flattened, and we will not remove leaky bags of garbage. 

**Recycling must be pre sorted into the following bins, one bin for each category:

  • paper and cardboard
  • refundable glass
  • refundable cans and plastic bottles (coconut water cans are non-refundable!)
  • hard plastics, tetra packs and coffee cups, or any other wax/plastic-coated paper products(must be washed before put in bins)

Your roll in the process

Before the cleaning technician’s arrival, please remove all items that may delay our cleaning service (i.e., loose papers from desks etc.).This will maximize efficiency and minimize the time we spend cleaning your business. If you prefer that our cleaning technicians remove these items, we will add the additional billing time and charge you accordingly.

Once we take a reservation, we hold that time slot open for you and may turn away other potential customers in order to ensure your timeframe. 

Refunds
