COMPLAINTS AND CLAIMS
Client accepts and understands that poor service, breakage/damage or theft must be reported within 24 hours from the service date. Failure to do so will entitle the customer to no refunds or recovery cleanings.
NoStains requires the presence of the Client or his/her representative in the beginning and at the end of the cleaning session so an inspection can be carried out and if any corrections are needed, should be made on the same day. If a Client is not completely satisfied with the cleaning services, NoStains will re-clean any areas and item/s before the completion of the service on the same day
If the Client has scheduled an inventory check then it must be scheduled to commence no later than 24 hours after the job has been done.
NoStains may take up to 5 working days to respond to a complaint.
Nostains will not accept a complaint based on an Inventory report, filed more than 24-hours after the cleaning session.
Complaints are accepted in writing (letter, email or Fax). Complaints must be reported on completion or in the following 24-hours.
All fragile and highly breakable items must be secured or removed. Items excluded from liability are cash, jewelry, items of sentimental value, art and antiques.
Key replacement/locksmith fees are paid only if keys are lost by our carpet technicians. There is a £30 per household liability limit.
The client should appreciate that carpets often will not have a consistent appearance after cleaning by reason of differences in wear and tear. Sunlight will sometimes cause fading or discoloration in areas of the carpet and cleaning cannot rectify this. Stains are not always visible before dirt is removed and it might not be possible to remove those stains completely. NoStains will use its best efforts to provide a good result but Clients are asked to be aware of these limitations which are common to all cleaning operations.
In case of damage, Nostains will try to repair the item/s if it agrees that it caused the damage. If the item/s cannot be repaired NoStains will rectify the problem through its insurance company by crediting the Client with the item/s if it is proven to be by our personnel.
NoStains reserves the right not to be responsible for: delay for a cleaning visit due to a traffic congestion, postponed service due to broken equipment, job not complete due to lack of hot water or power and suitable cleaning materials and/or equipment in full working order provided by the Client, third party entering or present at Client’s premises obstructing the cleaning process, accidental damages worth up to £50 or less.
Nostains is using subcontractors. All carpet technicians have Public liability insurance. The policy will cover any accidental damages caused by an operator working on behalf of NoStains, reported within 24 hours of service date.
Insurance cover does not include anything that may break down or stop working at any time such as any items, instability of which the Client is already aware of such us bathroom appliances or any fixtures. The Client is obliged to warn the Company or the cleaner about appliances that are poorly fixed or not in full working order.
NoStains reserves the right to refuse to share any of the confidential company’s documents.
Client understands that he/she is not entitled to any refunds.
If the Client is not satisfied with the cleaning service provided and a complaint has been placed in the state 24 hours after the job has been completed, NoStains reserves the right to return a cleaner and re-clean any areas and items to Client’s satisfaction. Therefore the Client must allow the cleaner to be returned and he/she should be at present at all times during the re-clean visit.
NoStains reserves the right to return a cleaner, not more than once.
The client may cancel the scheduled cleaning job up to 24 hours prior to the agreed start time or by Saturday at 12 pm if the clean is scheduled on Sundays or Mondays.

If keys are provided they must open the lock without any special efforts or skills.
