•Your use of this website and any dispute arising out of such use of the website is subject to the laws of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We will endeavour to clean all parts of the conservatory, but if we deem any part to be inaccessible or unsafe to clean, we will not clean it.
Our methods work in all weathers, therefore weather conditions are not an acceptable reason for postponing our services. We can clean your home/premises in most conditions without affecting quality, including heavy rain. Snow and frost may deem it necessary to postpone or reschedule the clean.
In freezing temperatures, we may deem it necessary to grit areas of excess water.
We do not accept liability for damage caused by decorative or structural defects, or conditions at your property/premises, such as, but not limited to, ill-fitting windows, doors, fascias, guttering, window/conservatory trims, unsecured windows and doors, leaking seals, decorative bars stuck on glass, rotting frames, flaking paint, open/broken trickle vents, etc.
Should we be unable to access any part of your property/premises due to locked gates etc you will typically be charged 50% of the total clean cost. To avoid this, please ensure safe access is available. If you prefer keeping your gate locked or access is available through a garage or security gate we are happy to collect keys and return them after the completion of the work. We will only find a safe method of climbing over locked gates and walls if you have given prior consent to do so.
Due to insurance liabilities, we will be unable to move obstacles such as, but not exclusive to: flowerpots and garden furniture (residential) filling cabinets and items on internal window sills (commercial). If these or any other item we deem to restrict access to an area of your property/premises, we will be unable to clean it.
Full payment must be received within 14 days (commercial) and 7 days (residential) of the invoice date (unless otherwise stated).
For late payments, we will charge interest at 2.5% a month while the account remains unpaid. We require you to pay our expenses and legal costs incurred in obtaining payment on an indemnity basis. We reserve the right to charge you £5 for letters, £10 for legal notices, £20 for returned payments, and any third-party costs involved in tracing you, returned cheques, debt collection and legal action. We also reserve the right to pass unpaid accounts to a debt collector/solicitor for recovery/legal action, to whom we may assign the debt and all rights without restriction.
Should you dispute an outstanding invoice and claim to have made payment, the onus is on you to prove payment has arrived and cleared. We cannot accept any liability for cheques, postal orders or cash that has been lost in the post. We strongly advise against sending cash in the post.
Achieving optimum cleaning results may require a few cleans. For example, detergent residues from previous cleaning methods may initially cause slight spotting. Leaching can also occur from trickle vents, beading and heavily soiled frames, however in most cases, this will cease after a couple of cleans, once the dirt is removed fully from the frame areas.
We accept no liability for decorative bars coming loose or falling from the exterior of the glass. If these bars are correctly installed, our brushes will not damage them in any way. Should they become loose or fall, this is due to the adhesive not bonding correctly with the glass and coming into contact with dust, rain and contaminates.
We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions without notice.

Postponement of any service will require 24 hours’ notice from the client before any scheduled date. Notice less than 24 hours or on the scheduled day will be charged at 50% of the value of the work due.
