Cleaning Services Agreement Information

Alternate Names:

A Cleaning Services Agreement is also known as a:

  • Commercial Cleaning Service Contract
  • House Cleaning Service Agreement
  • Janitorial Cleaning Service Contract
  • Maid Service Agreement

What is a Cleaning Services Agreement?

A Cleaning Services Agreement is a contract between a professional service provider or contractor (either a self-employed individual or a company) and a client that outlines terms regarding building maintenance and janitorial services.

A cleaning contract can be used for a variety of jobs, such as:

  • Office cleaning (e.g. cleaning carpets, maintaining bathrooms, or general building care)
  • Housekeeping (e.g. sorting laundry, washing dishes, or dusting and disinfecting surfaces)
  • Car cleaning (e.g. vacuuming the interior, dry cleaning upholstery, or applying protectant to the console and steering wheel)

A Cleaning Services Agreement clearly describes what cleaning services will be provided, the timeframe in which the services will be completed, and the compensation the service provider expects to receive.

What details are included in a Cleaning Services Agreement?

LawDepot's Cleaning Services Agreement template allows you to specify the terms of your cleaning contract by including details about the cleaning services, the contractor and client, and billing. In particular, your contract will include information like:

  • How long the contract will last for (e.g. for a single visit, until a specified date, or indefinitely)
  • What work the contractor will do (for example, cleaning a specific room in a commercial building)
  • When the cleaning services will be provided (e.g. on weekends only)
  • How the client will be charged for the services (such as with a flat fee or an hourly rate)

In addition to service details, a cleaning contract can also address various terms of agreement such as:

  • If the client must pay a deposit or late-payment penalties
  • If the client must reimburse the contractor for any expenses
  • Whether or not either party can end the contract early
  • Whether or not the contractor has the duty of confidentiality (i.e. if, through the process of providing cleaning services, the contractor may encounter sensitive or proprietary information and must agree not disclose this information to the public)

How do you price a cleaning contract?

LawDepot's Cleaning Services Agreement provides various options for pricing depending on the term of the contract.

Many contractors choose to charge an hourly or weekly rate to receive payments as their work is completed. An hourly rate of pay is often preferred when cleaning services are expected to be ongoing or long-term.

In contrast, flat fees may be preferred when a contractor is hired for a single cleaning job. Some contractors choose to charge a flat fee that typically requires a single payment to be made in full at a certain time. This fee can be calculated in a number of different ways. For instance, many cleaning companies will estimate the time it takes to clean one square foot of a building then multiply this estimate by the total area that needs to be serviced.

Why should I use a Cleaning Services Agreement?

A cleaning contract benefits both contractors and clients because it clarifies the terms of their professional relationship, which can prevent misunderstandings and resolve disputes if they arise. Without a written agreement, there may be some confusion regarding each party's rights and responsibilities. As such, it's recommended that you are clear and specific when describing your cleaning tasks so both parties understand exactly what services will be provided.

For example, a client might expect a cleaner to shovel the front walkway of a building after a heavy snowfall, but the cleaner was only hired to clean the inside of the building. A cleaning contract could help resolve this dispute by providing evidence of the agreed upon responsibilities.

Alternately, a contract could prevent disputes from occurring in the first place as both clients and contractors can refer to the document whenever they need clarification on the terms of agreement.
