Service Timing

Service Timing

You MUST be On time, every time!

Providers are expected to arrive on time and remain to service the property for the duration of the allocated booking time. If you are running late, please call Effly's support team, and we will let the client know.

Our jobs are quoted in total hours. For example - a 6-hour job pays $180 total.

1 cleaner must be onsite for 6 hours - the job pays $180

2 cleaners could be onsite for 3 hours (2 cleaners)  - the job will pay $180

3 cleaners could be onsite for 2 hours (3 cleaners)  - the job still pays $180

As part of our workmanship, we provide our customers with a Reclean service for End of Tenancy Cleans. Every pro needs to complete the EOT checklist and attend the final walkthrough with the customer but in case of any dispute and concerns raised by the customer need to address the unpaid.

Reliability, quality, and professionalism!

We charge the client a fee (and pass it on to our Service Providers) if they cancel within 12 hours of their appointment.

If you're unable to access the property, call us and stay on the job site until instructed by a staff member. We'll be able to help with your travel costs but please stay onsite and wait for instructions.

Any cancellations made by the service providers within 24-hours of the booking will incur a 2-hour penalty fee. Canceling an ongoing booking will always incur a 1-hour fee
