Client agrees to allow the company on the property for the purposes of completing cleaning services requested. Due to unforeseen circumstances such as bad weather, the cleaning service may need to be moved to the next available business day. Client understands that the company will do their best to accommodate for a quick reschedule but must work around other scheduled clients and weather. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning also has the permission to visit the property with little or no notice to assess service needs prior to the date of service, as well as to check completion after services have been rendered. Client agrees to allow Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning to utilize their residential or commercial water source via outdoor spigot, which will be turned on and easily accessible on the date of service. If on well water, or if in an area with low water pressure or volume, client agrees to inform the company and will avoid using any water during the cleaning service. If clients water source is not sufficient for cleaning service, they must inform Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning so they can adequately prepare to bring water with them to cover required flow. There is a fee of $100 for Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning to bring water to complete the cleaning service due to the extra required equipment and fuel costs associated with weight barriers to transport and feed the water from our tanks. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning does not hook up to the homeowner’s power as our equipment is powered by our own systems or ran on gas. We only hookup to your home's spigot for water and the only item to be touched by the crew members. Crew members are to inspect any spigot previous to cleaning to ensure there is no damage to area and inspection after. Per their required training, they must take before and after photos. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning will not be held accountable for previously damaged spigots. Client will be informed of any previously noted damage. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning will not be held accountable for any issues within or outside the home that is not related to the cleaning service.
Risks and Releases of Liability Acknowledgement
Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning technicians are well-trained in the equipment used in the cleaning industry and take extreme precautions in making sure the company does not cause harm to your investment. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning uses safe techniques with the use of low pressure on delicate surfaces such as siding. However, damage can still occur to any delicate surface due to poor maintenance, neglect to the property and or low-grade building materials. Routine maintenance per manufacture’s recommendations on the homes surfaces, should be implemented by homeowners to avoid any potential defects. Prior to washing the home any areas of concern need to be addressed by the homeowner to ensure a watertight seal. This will prevent damage from occurring. The homeowner assumes all the risks and takes responsibility for any damage that occurs due to improper maintenance.
On the date of service, the company will visually note any pre-existing damage. Crew members will take photos of noted damage. Homeowner will be informed of any damage once work is complete. If homeowner is unavailable at time of completion, the office manager will notify the client of any damage before work along with supporting documentation. If any new damage is found during the cleaning process, the company will cease all cleaning efforts until the client can see the damage and acknowledge its existence.
Client understands that the company has set procedures to ensure plant life around the area of cleaning is protected. Client understands that their wash could be scheduled during midday sun and there could be potential for leaf burn as water can get on and around the plant during the cleaning process. If any issues arise with plant life around the area of cleaning, the company will evaluate to see if plant life suffered from leaf burn and will recover or if it has been killed. The company will then determine plan of action after evaluation of plant life.
House Wash Acknowledgement & Oxidation
Client understands that any blemish or flaw or any existing oxidation will be more noticeable after cleaning. Vinyl/Aluminum/Plank sided homes that have not been maintained or has contact sun exposure will be susceptible to oxidation. Signs of oxidation are as follows: chalky white powder on siding and the clear luster removed. Please understand if your home suffers from oxidation, you may see this difference after cleaning. When the home is covered with debris, those blemishes may not stand out as much as it would be after it has been cleaned. Most of the time those issues are pointed out to the client during estimate inspection or during the cleaning process. Client understands that Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning may not find every flaw and is not reliable if it is more noticeable after wash unless it is found to be of negligence on the company's end. Client understands that we require that all outside electrical outlets and fixtures are shut off before arrival to complete washing service as an additional precaution. Client also understands if we do a site unseen estimate based off provided photos or use of google maps software, that we will not be able to note any flaws in exterior surfaces. If we do a site unseen estimate, client understands we are not reliable for any unacknowledged flaw and will do our best to point this out at date of cleaning. Client also understands that our cleaning solution is specifically designed for our cleaning services and it will not cause any discoloration or damage to the siding.
Post-Cleaning Weep Holes
Client understands that if their home is severely covered in grime that they could potentially have issues with weep holes. If you notice a faint rusty color on your siding, there is not need for alarm. If you have vinyl siding, you have something called weep holes. These holes are made by the manufactures to allow ventilation and allow any condensation to drain out. With that said, these holes make a nice little home for bugs, dirt and debris. Debris and dirt get trapped inside the holes and behind the siding. When we do the wash, our solution pulls the dirt and debris out and sometimes left over water and bug juices drain from these holes after we complete the wash as it goes through the drying process. The rust color/ light faint colors you’re seeing is bug feces, debris, mold etc. We see this occur on sections of siding that had the heaviest buildup. This will come off with the morning dew, garden hose or rain. It is not a stain and it is not permanent. Typically, anyone that calls in regards to this usually see a huge difference after the morning dew. Some weep holes can run heavy.
Client understands that during the house wash service they will receive a basic window cleaning. This is different from windows being done with a purified water-fed pole system. A basic window wash will get debris off windows but you could be left with water spots. If you are looking for a squeaky-clean shine on windows, you will want to get a window cleaning service which is completed with purified water-fed pole system (if available). All water is run through a filter to ensure nothing remains in the water that could leave water spots or streaks. We recommend removing your screens to allow any debris between the window and screen to be rinsed away in a house wash.
Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning does not remove window screens during house washing. While the company has implemented procedures and processes to cover electrical outlets, we suggest the client shut off power to all exterior outlets that are not covered with exterior covers. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning will not be held liable for electrical outages caused by uncovered exterior outlets, cable boxes, utility panels etc. The client is responsible for ensuring these areas are property covered prior to cleaning. Our cleaning solution contains concentrations of Sodium Hypochlorite - a chlorinating agent containing salt which can be an electrical conductor.
Client understands that most rust and oil stains may not fully come clean or be removed. Concrete and Brick surfaces are porous and sponge-like, therefore, these surfaces soak up liquids and contaminants after contact has been made with the surface. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaing utilizes proprietary industrial cleaners and degreasers to help lift heavy stains, however we do not guarantee removal of such stains. Most oil/rust stains will leave behind a shadow after cleaning. Pro Flow Exterior Cleaning will not be held liable for surface etching caused by the use of industrial-strength cleaners or acids.
Exclusions & Limitations:
• The full invoice must be satisfied upon receipt of the invoice/same day service is completed. In the event the client is unhappy with services as outlined, we will return to the property to inspect and correct any errors with cleaning service if applicable. The client will be entitled to a refund of 50% of the total invoice if an agreement can not be reached.
• If water intrusion occurs, the company will not be held responsible. We make every effort to prevent this but due to unavoidable issues such as bad seals around windows and doors and cracks in concrete foundations.
• Notify the company if there are any surfaces on or near the home that cannot have any form of our cleaning solution on them. If we are failed to be notified of this, the company is not responsible for any ill effect on any surfaces.
