What types of business insurance do you need for a cleaning service?
As you may know, business insurance protects your company and assets against natural disasters, property damage, bodily injury claims, and more. However, why should you get business insurance? While insuring and bonding, your cleaning business builds trust with your clients while protecting your company assets; general liability insurance, workers' compensation insurance, property insurance, and janitorial bonds keep your cleaning business safe from financial charges.
Insurance companies generally consider your coverage needs, claims history, number of employees, and other factors before providing you with a final rate and package. Regardless of industry, every small business should consider buying two primary forms of insurance: General liability insurance and business property insurance.
General Liability: Some clients might require you have this standard coverage before you can work for them. General liability coverage protects against lawsuits and accidents that might otherwise financially devastate your business. It can cover physical injury and property damage while on the job and protect your business from someone who claims to have been hurt or injured due to your business. It also covers you if your business causes property damage.
Commercial property insurance: Repairs or replaces your business building, equipment, and other assets after a fire and smoke, certain natural disasters, or burglary. It also includes property damage on a job site (e.g., an employee uses the wrong solution while mopping the floor of a client's home) and advertising injuries (e.g., you publish a defamatory statement about a competitor on social media).
Business owner's policy: Because two policies are better than one, combine general liability coverage with protection for your commercial buildings and personal property into one package. Replace employee wages, lost revenue, and other bills associated with being unable to operate your business for reasons covered under the policy, such as a fire, theft, vandalism, and severe weather.
However, A BOP doesn't cover your employees. You'll need a separate workers' compensation policy.
