Dorm Mom reserves the right to refuse cleaning any item.
Dorm Mom does not guarantee removal of all stains.
Although Dorm Mom is not liable for damage to or loss of clothing due the fault of the third party cleaners or service providers, if Dorm Mom at its sole discretion desires to, we will reimburse clients for lost or damaged clothing in an amount to be determined by Dorm Mom - this amount cannot exceed $50.00 per item or $150.00 per load of laundry. Clients must notify Dorm Mom within 3 business days of receipt of a delivery of any lost or damaged items from that particular delivery, failure to do so constitutes waiver of a claim for any lost or damaged items from that delivery.
Dorm Mom will provide a laundry bag for weekly laundry pickup clients. However we will charge a $10 fee for additional bags required there after within the same semester. Clients who purchased a one time service may request a Dorm Mom bag for an additional $10.00. The bags provided may be able to hold much more than the poundage limit for your service plan. It is your responsibility to stay within your plan's poundage limit.
Dorm Mom will charge an overage fee for laundry that exceeds the plan signed up for. This overage will be billed to the credit card used to sign-up. The client is responsible for all overage charges that may arise from using the service. The fee may be charged right away or at the end of the service cycle depending on location. The Client has access to all bills paid and can request a review of charges at any time.
Dorm Mom is only responsible for your laundry and advised that you refrain from putting any other person's laundry along with yours.
Dorm Mom is not obligated to wait on client laundry pick-up beyond the scheduled pick-up time. All wait times will be at our discretions and we will not be obliged to reschedule pick-up for that week.
You are responsible for letting us know if you are unable to hand in your laundry 24 hours prior to scheduled pick-up. Dorm Mom will treat missed pickups as no-show and will not allow double the poundage for your next pick-up. We will thus assess overage charges for the following week if you do go over the allotted poundage.
Some campuses may have restriction on having outsiders on campus or how far in they can go. You are responsible for bringing your laundry out to where Dorm Mom is able to pick it up.
