Roof and Pressure washing waiver

Pressure washing and Hot/Steam utilises low to high-pressure water and chemicals to remove tough stains from exterior surfaces. This high pressure ensures thorough cleaning, but it also carries the risk of causing damage. Lincs Window Cleaning Ltd are trained to operate its equipment and use chemicals with the utmost care to avoid harm to your property. Although we keep our operating pressure to a minimum, damage may still occur due to inadequate maintenance, property neglect, and/or low-quality building materials. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure that their property has been maintained in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations and that any defects or concerns are addressed before washing to maintain a watertight surface. The Client assumes these risks and takes accountability for any damage resulting from the explanations above.

The Client also agrees to release the company from any or all liability for injuries sustained due to equipment placement, including tripping/falling, contact with equipment, falling debris, or equipment.

Client Responsibilities on the Day of Service:

1. Please ensure that the external water supply is activated and accessible.
2. Please ensure that all windows and doors are securely closed.
3. Please keep all pets and children indoors during the cleaning process.
4. If chemicals are being used, follow all instructions from our staff.
5. Clear the work areas of all items and remove plant pots, doormats, vehicles, and any other movable sensitive materials from the areas being cleaned.

Acknowledgement of Risk & Release of Liability
Lincs Window Cleaning Ltd advises the Client to utilise their property’s fuse box to turn off power to all exterior outlets, light fixtures, or any other electrically powered features. This is especially important for outlets that are not covered by exterior covers. Additionally, if Lincs Window Cleaning Ltd are cleaning or cleaning close to solar panels, these should be isolated by switching them off at the fuse panel. It is essential for the preservation of the client’s property that they inform Lincs Window Cleaning Ltd of any surfaces that cannot be cleaned with highly alkaline or acidic detergents (see exclusions below).

Exclusions:

– A £50.00 cancellation fee applies if notice is not given within 24 hours of service, or if the company arrives and cannot wash due to steps1-5 not being completed.
– The company is not liable for water intrusion. Despite every effort made to prevent this, poor seals around windows and doors, broken tiles or perished roof lining, and cracks in concrete or stone surfaces can make this unavoidable.
– The company is not responsible for the rare “fogging” effect that occurs on multi-pane windows with poor seals.
– This agreement to provide services does not guarantee complete removal of stains. The company aims for 100% customer satisfaction and will cooperate with homeowners when this does not occur.
