TERMS AND FAQ
Does Yellobean Use Eco Friendly Products?
Yes! Our team here at Yellobean Total Clean use eco-friendly cleaning products that are safe for your family and pets, while helping to minimise our carbon footprint. We recently introduced Probiotic Cleaning products. The microbes in the probiotics effectively eat the bad bacteria and replenishing your environment with good bacteria. Overtime your environment becomes healthier.
Our Professional Cleaners are trained specifically in how to use these products properly, so you won't notice a decrease in quality versus a standard chemical cleaner.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel or reschedule your cleaning service, please provide at least 24 hours advance notice. Please be courteous and give us as much time as possible to reschedule the cleaners. If there is no answer when we get to the jobsite, there will be a $140 cancellation fee.

Is There Anything Yellobean Total Clean Does Not Do?
Weight - We have a 20 lb. weight limit for safety reasons. We are accustomed to moving smaller items like dining table chairs, small ottomons, etc. to clean under. If you would like any heavier furniture or appliances cleaned under, you're welcome to move it and we'll be happy to clean under it upon request.
Heights - We are limited to a 2 foot or shorter step stool. Safety is of the utmost importance to us. Please keep in mind that in most cases, the tops of kitchen cupboards are outside of our reach. Some lighting fixtures are also out of our reach.
Clutter - We will work around any highly-cluttered areas to the best of our ability. Same goes with areas used for storage, like underneath beds and on top of cabinets.
We are always happy to customise your cleaning service outside of our basic clean, however it is regarded as an Add-on.
Please let our office know if you'd like these types of things removed to clean under and behind. As long as they are within the boundaries of weight/height, we're happy to help.
Outdoor Areas - Our equipment isn't designed for cleaning outside surfaces such as patios, decks, rough concrete floors, unfinished basements, garages, exterior windows, etc. If you can provide a broom, we'll be happy to sweep out any of those areas upon request.
Pet Messes/Body Fluids - This includes, but is not limited to: litter boxes, pet messes, bird guano, blood, feces, urine, and overflowed toilets. Cleaning body fluids (including that of our furry friends) is something we do not do.
Mould - Some amount of pink/orange mildew, or even darker mould, is common in some homes. Don't worry - we can clean small amounts of mould. Large amounts of mould in shower areas, on walls, etc. can affect air quality and pose a safety issue. We aren't able to clean in rooms that are heavily affected by mould, or in homes with heavy mould infestations.
Bugs - We apologise that we aren't able to offer post-fumigation cleanings. We ask that any bug infestations or fumigation clean-ups are completed in their entirety before we enter a home.
Fireplaces - The soot/ash from a fireplace will damage our equipment, especially our vacuums. Simply provide a broom and dust pan, and we'll be happy to sweep out the fireplace upon request.
Laundry - We do not offer any laundry services such as ironing or washing/drying your items.
Carpet Cleaning - We do not offer carpet cleaning services.
