What Is a Cleaning Service Contract

A Cleaning Service Contract is a legal document made between 2 parties when one of them wants to hire a cleaner to clean a property.

These properties range from homes to office buildings. That is why this type of service contract has a few other names, including:

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

If you are interested in hiring a Cleaning Service for your home or business, a contract allows you to set the terms and conditions of the service.

When Do You Need a Cleaning Service Agreement

You should formalize a Cleaning Contract before the service begins.

After an agreement is in place, both parties must outline the terms and conditions. Without an agreement, there is always a risk of serious legal problems later on.

Take advantage of LawDistrct’s Cleaning Service Contract Template. Use it to write your contract and avoid problems such as a lawsuit or late payments.
