CHARGES, PAYMENTS AND ADJUSTMENTS

A late service fee equal to 0.5% of the outstanding balance per month will be charged on any balance unpaid over thirty (30) days. A service charge of $25.00 will be charged for any returned check. Refunds are computed by subtracting the regular price of any completed services from the original prepay amount, less a $35.00 processing fee.

TIMING OF TREATMENTS
Spring Touch Lawn & Pest Control, Inc. is responsible for scheduling your lawn for timely treatment. Treatments are generally made at (approximately four to seven week) intervals for lawn or tree and shrub care. Pest control treatments may be monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly.
WEATHER CONDITION CLAUSE
These regularly scheduled programs can be modified depending on the weather and the conditions of your lawn. The success of this program depends on proper watering, mowing, and cultural practices. If you need assistance, please call our office. If it rains after treatment, please wait 7 days before scheduling a respray.
Spring Touch Lawn & Pest Control, Inc. is committed to working with you to achieve expected results. If an issue arises or you believe that a treatment was ineffective, call our office at (507) 388-9100. We will address your concerns at the time of your next regularly scheduled treatment, or if necessary, provide a service call to your property. As results over time are a function of continuous non-interrupted service, any service calls requested by you and performed by Spring Touch Lawn & Pest Control, Inc. during the time of a skipped treatment will be billed at the treatment cost. Additionally, service calls will only be honored for 15 days after the previous application in any instance where the next regular application is not scheduled. Customers with less than four applications per program are not eligible for service calls or free applications. Customers with an unpaid balance over thirty (30) days old will not receive a free service call.
Total insect elimination is not desirable, nor achievable, with any program because beneficial insects will be lost along with the target pests. Acceptable levels of activity and targeted applications combine to give enhanced plant aesthetics.
BORING INSECT PROBLEMS
Plants invaded by borers have a high probability of death or decline. Sound cultural practices and control applications may extend the life of some species. Treatment of boring insects most often includes additional fees.
Climate conditions and type of disease and plant material affected will impact response. Canker, verticillium wilt and root rot are among uncontrollable diseases which cannot be prevented or controlled by Spring Touch Lawn & Pest Control, Inc.
AERATION & SEEDING WARRANTY
Spring Touch will only reapply seed if proper watering has been done but will not refund the application price. To warranty your seed, we will need copies of your water bills for one month prior and two months after seeding has occurred. Without proper watering, the chance of your seed germinating and growing is greatly reduced.
SHALLOW LINES AND/OR WIRES.
Spring Touch Lawn & Pest Control, Inc. is not responsible for damages to any underground lines or wires including, but not limited to, underground dog fencing, cable TV, telephone wires, electric lines, pipes, fixtures, irrigation lines, or any other buried lines, whether marked or not. It is the customer’s responsibility to inform Spring Touch Lawn & Pest Control, Inc. of any underground lines or wires prior to any service on the lawn or landscape.
