12.2 The stated guarantee period is only valid if any reasonable instructionsand/or recommendations made by the technician are adhered to following works completion.

12.4 The introduction of any new mice entry points not previously present during the time of the proofing works – i.e. subsequent unit replacement, pipe routing etc. – will null and void the guarantee period
12.5 The subsequent second or third party tampering of any of the proofing works carried out by the servicing technician, or the failure to allow adequate cure periods of the proofing products (six hours minimum at 20 degress Celsius) will render the guarantee period null and void.
12.6 The subsequent exposure of the proofed areas or proofing materials used during the service to unnecessary or excessive wear and tear outside of what is reasonable to expect, or was previously in place, for the location will null and void the guarantee period.
