Acknowledgment of Risks and Releases of Liability
A-Z Property Solutions, LLC technicians are professionally trained in the use of equipment and cleaning solutions used to treat and clean your home. A-Z Property Solutions, LLC uses safe and gentle washing techniques with the use of low pressure on delicate surfaces such as siding and windows and higher pressure on harder surfaces such as concrete, brick and stone. Our cleaners are designed to treat and terminate existing growth organisms i.e; algae, moss, lichens and mold, along with removing dirt, debris and cobweb build-up. Our cleaners will not remove stains or fading i.e.; oil and grease, smoke damage, rust, agriculture, artillery fungus and oxidation. On the date of service, the Company will walk around the property and make note and take pictures of visible pre-existing damage and review with Client if they are available at that time. This documentation is not all encompassing, as more pre-existing damage can become apparent while the surfaces are being cleaned. When more pre-existing damages is found, the company will make note and take pictures, and review with Client if they are available at that time. The following are examples of, but do not limit, areas that are beyond the control of A-Z Property Solutions, LLC when carrying out our residential washing services to our Clients property.
Gutter Brightening - Depending on the quality, age and condition of your gutters, some gutters will not be a suitable candidate for our gutter brightening service. At the time of the estimate we make every effort to identify if your gutters are suitable but in many cases it is a challenge to identify due to algae, dirt and debris build-up. Therefore on the day of service our technician will test a spot on your gutters to ensure your gutters are suitable to receive the gutter brightening service. If gutters are determined not to be suitable the technician will cease moving forward with service.
