Window cleaning, glass restoration, skylight cleaning, & post construction cleaning – Pricing does not include removal of paints adhesives, construction debris or mineral stains unless otherwise stated in proposal. Due to widespread problems with poor quality tempered glass scratching during construction window cleaning, SOAR will not be liable for any scratches on any tempered or heat strengthened glass. It is accepted and understood by ALL parties that properly used razor blades and scrapers are standard tools and techniques for construction window cleaning and can safely remove limited amounts of construction debris (plaster, paint, texture, tape, stickers, etc.) from quality glass, without scratching the glass surface.
Furthermore, it is accepted, that the use of razor blades and scrapers will be employed on all construction window cleaning and no other cleaning method will be offered by SOAR to remove construction debris from any glass surface.
If the client does not choose to have the window cleaner use razor blades or scrapers, the client must cover all glass during entire construction process, which would protect glass from any construction debris and eliminate the need for SOAR to use razor blades and scrapers to clean the glass.
Power washing, soft washing – Power washing can cause permanent water damage or other permanent damage in, on, or around the structure and/or other personal property where the service is being performed.
