PS reserves the right to decline to carry out, without liability or penalty, any treatment if PS believes that it may be unsafe to access or treat the Premises, and/or that the Premises have not been sufficiently prepared in accordance with any of PS’s prior instructions, and/or or where PS believes its safety rules may not be adhered to.

  13. If re-infestation does occur between regular scheduled service calls, PS will provide additional service treatments to endeavour to eliminate that re-infestation in accordance with the Proposal.
