If a client chooses to leave their door unlocked, place the key under the mat, or leave their house key i n an unsecured place for the cleaners to gain entry, the client releases us from all liability that arises from damage made before or after the cleaners leave the premises. Our cleaners will leave the key/ door in the same place/ condition that it was left in before their arrival.
