Health and Safety (H&S)
It is the customer’s responsibility to move any furniture in any given room where a carpet/item is to be cleaned.ACS are happy to assist in moving lighter items of furniture however, ACS cannot move heavy items of furniture such as filled wardrobes or electrical items. If a customer wishes these to be moved, they should do so prior to ACS’s arrival.
If you wish ACS to move any items, it is understood that I accept no responsibility or liability for damage or injuries arising from the moving process or as a result of items being moved.
Damageable items and valuables are to be removed (by the customer and prior to our arrival) from the room where the carpet/item is to be cleaned to avoid any damage to these items during the cleaning process.
Carpet/upholstery cleaning hot water extraction machines use long lengths of hoses connected between the machine and the operator’s wand and also long power leads. These can be a trip hazard and it is understood by the customer to take extra care when stepping over these and that the company accepts no liability or damages for injuries resulting from tripping over any equipment or items used by ACS
Carpets, rugs, and upholstery will be damp after cleaning and as such may be slippery. It is understood by the customer that extra care must be taken when walking on damp carpets to avoid slipping / falling over and that I accept no liability for any damages or injuries resulting from slipping or falling. Care must be taken when walking on any cleaned carpet or rug and in particular on stairs and when stepping from damp carpet to a hard flooring (Vinyl plank, wood, laminate, etc) surface. It is the customer’s responsibility to advise any guests/visitors/people that the carpets may be slippery. Walking on carpets prior to being fully dried can also decrease the effectiveness of the cleaning and can also result in the pile being flattened and drying in that position resulting in a poor appearance. Walking on the carpet prior to being dry is the choice of the customer and I advise against this and accept no liability for any issues resulting from this. Children and pets must be kept off the carpet until dry.
It is the responsibility of the customer to keep all people and pets away from both the room where cleaning takes place and the equipment used by ACS. The equipment and cleaning solutions are only to be touched/moved by ACS personnel. Children and pets are to be supervised by the customer at all times. No liability shall be accepted for damages or any injuries to any persons/pets resulting from failure to adhere to the above
What Is Required from the customer:
I will require access to water and electricity supplied by the customer to complete my cleaning services. I accept no liability for not being able to complete a cleaning service or be responsible for any cleaning results due to a lack of hot water or electricity. I will require parking for my vehicle in order to carry out our services. If no parking is available, I reserve the right to refuse the job.
If you (the customer) are not happy with the cleaning results achieved, I will return to clean the affected area again for free of charge. I must be notified within forty-eight (48) hours of the cleaning of any dissatisfaction for the guarantee to apply. The guarantee applies to the “cleaning of the carpet/item” and does not apply to areas faded, worn, pile reversal, or any other type of pre-existing damage to the carpet/item. Any complaints should be made in writing by emailing me within seven (7) days of the cleaning date.
Results, risks, and limitations:
The customer accepts that whilst every effort will be made to remove or improve spots and stains, some may be permanent and non-removable.
Prior to cleaning a survey will be carried out detailing any limitations or risks. If you request us to commence cleaning, I do not accept liability for any damage resulting from potential limitations or risks pointed out. I accept no responsibility or liability where, after a carpet or upholstered item has been cleaned, pre-existing damage such as wear, fading, shading, discolouration or other forms of damage becomes more visible.
I offer an optional carpet protection system that is applied as per the manufactures guidance. The protection will wear off over time and is best applied to freshly cleaned carpets. It is not a guarantee to stop all spills from penetrating the carpet rather it is designed to coat the carpet fibres to reduce the amount of liquid penetrating the fibres and therefore increasing the chance of removing spills. I do not accept any liability from issues relating to the effectiveness of the treatment nor guarantee the results.
When carpets/upholstered items are made they are often done so without consideration to after-sales cleaning. There is, therefore, a risk when cleaning them even when following industry-accepted procedures that the appearance/feel of these items can be adversely affected. Every care is taken to avoid such issues by conducting tests to minimize risks. However, due to the multitude of variables involved (including, but not limited to the construction type of the carpet/item, backing materials used which are often not visible, multiple fibre types with individual characteristics, age, previous cleaning residual cleaning solutions, and atmospheric conditions), this can be unforeseen and therefore unpredictable.
I, therefore, cannot be held responsible for issues relating to the following: Loss or change of finish, stains that have migrated from unseen backing materials to the cover fabric, fraying to piping, bobbling of any fabric coverings, bleaching or change of colour, odours from stains such as urine, cellulosic browning, damage to loose furniture frames, legs and buttons.
Shrinkage can occur when wetting woven carpets and upholstery during cleaning. ACS does not over-wet carpets/upholstery, therefore, reducing risk. Chances of shrinkage are minimal when the carpets are correctly fitted to the carpet gripper rods and seams are installed correctly. We do not accept liability for shrinkage through issues relating to insufficient carpet fitting. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure carpets are secured- at all edges and joins-prior to cleaning to include functioning carpet grippers and suitable adhesive tape/glue is in good condition without sign of deterioration or failure in any way. A degree of shrinkage is normal with upholstery fabrics.
