indicated in a standard dwelling of a similar size shown in the pricing to be completed.
3.2 If you have purchased the Company’s Deep Cleaning, Move in/Move out Cleaning, Post Renovation Cleaning, or Post Construction cleaning services, the prices you have been quoted are based on the assumption that the premises are in a reasonable state with no obstructions, heavy materials or construction equipment and the services can be readily provided.
