TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. QUOTED FEES
1.1 Where we have quoted a fee for carrying out non-urgent Work and the Work subsequently needs to be carried out urgently (through no fault of ours) we may revise our quotation.
1.2 While in most cases our quotations are accurate, it is not possible to provide an accurate quote in every case. We reserve the right to vary our quotation if upon attending your premises we become aware of matters that would have affected our quotation had they been made clear to us at the time of booking. These may include, but are not limited to, matters such as difficult access, excessive build-up of dirt, property dimensions or other matters that are different to those indicated at the time of booking.
1.3 Where we intend to revise our quotation, we will advise you of the new price quoted prior to commencement of the Work.
2. OUR SAFETY
2.1 You warrant:
(a) that the premises are safe and secure at the time we attend to carry out the Work;
(b) that all other occupiers and owners of the premises have given their consent to us carrying out the Work;
(c) that the premises will have electrical power and sufficient lighting at the time we attend to carry out the Work;
(d) that you have drawn our attention to any risk relating to the premises that a reasonable person would have considered.
2.2 We reserve the right to refuse to complete the Work, or any part of it, that would pose an unreasonable danger or risk of injury or loss to ourselves.

(a) once cleaned, a property will almost immediately begin to accumulate dust; and

(c) in many cases, cleaning will not remove all stains or marks present (particularly in carpets, walls, ovens, bathrooms and blinds).
3.3 Once we have completed the Work, you must ensure that it is inspected and any defects in performance of the Work notified to us within 48 hours, failing which we are not liable in any way for the Work performed. You acknowledge that this requirement is fair and reasonable having regard to your acknowledgements in clause 3.2.
3.4 Once defects in the Work have been notified to us you must give us the reasonable opportunity (no less than 72 hours) to attend the premises and remedy any defective aspects of the Work). You will provide us with access to the premises at reasonable times to carry out such remediation.

4.2 Where you assert that there has been damage or loss to the premises or to any items within it you must provide photo evidence of such damage or give us the opportunity to inspect same within 24 hours of the completion of the Work. You acknowledge that your failure to so gives rise to a prima facie assumption that we are not responsible for that damage or loss.
4.3 You warrant that you are the owner of the premises, have the right to occupy the premises or have authorisation from the owner or occupier of the premises at the time the Work is to be conducted and that entry by us onto the premises is authorised and does not constitute trespass.
