Should I have a cancellation charge for maid service? And if so how much? I’m trying to grow my cleaning company then a client suspends cleaning. And should I have a cancellation charge if they reschedule or postpones cleaning? Or should I just charge a flat rate for a cancellation?

House keys. Should you give house cleaners house keys or security codes? And what happens if the house cleaner loses the clients key?
House keys are a common topic in house cleaning FAQ forums. Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru says a checklist for customer keys and a lockbox are a good idea. Every maid can have a private “cleaners code” to disarm the security alarm. And when they leave, they lock the house using their alarm code.
If you trust the house cleaner with a key you can avoid lockout fees and skipped maid service.
