Our service is to check / vet cleaning companies that register with us. Our service ensures that to the best of our ability, our member is a genuine company, sole trader, entity, who is fully insured and has provided genuine business references. We check identification provided, check references and verify the insurance is valid and not lapsed, and rely on customer feedback During our vetting process we have to rely on the information provided by the prospective member and therefore cannot be held responsible for any false, omissions or misleading information they provide. If while our vetting process we flag up any discrepancies that cannot be answered satisfactory, membership will be declined. While we are here to help prospective clients choose a reliable, vetted cleaning company, the onus is on the client to make the final decision. Clients use our members at their own risk. Having said that we do check references supplied by our members, we check insurance details, qualification and identification. Our members have also agreed to abide by our Code of Conduct. We also rely on customer feedback.
Clients can provide feedback on our website regarding our members; however the feedback must be honest and must relate to actual services they have received from the member they are commenting about. Negative feedback will be put to the Member and they will be offered a right to reply. We will then look at the information provided and make a decision on how to move forward. We reserve the right to have the final say. This will lead to either the feedback being withdrawn or added. We do not guarantee that it will achieve satisfaction for either party.
