All of these scenarios may seem unlikely – something that simply wouldn’t happen to your cleaning business. But these types of accidents can, and do happen, more often than you may think – and the cost to your business could be devastating.

While slips, trips, and falls are the most common reasons for claims, damage to a client’s property can also be incredibly costly. Accidents that involve damage to expensive, rare, or fragile items make up a significant proportion of payouts – and claims made for irreplaceable items could see your business being sued for a huge sum.

For this reason, it’s crucial to have cleaning insurance and janitorial general liability insurance in place – no matter how big or small your business is. Not only can it help protect your business by paying for expert legal defense, but if a claim that relates to client injuries and client property damage is made against you, your insurer will cover the cost of any compensation awarded.

Preventing costly insurance claims for cleaning and janitorial businesses!

General liability insurance, sometimes called Commercial General Liability (CGL), could protect your business from another person or business’s claims of bodily injury, associated medical costs, and damage to property. Having this kind of coverage is beneficial in several instances:

  • Bodily injury: A customer trips over one of your cleaning supplies while you are cleaning their home and you are legally liable for the injury. We will cover the subsequent claim and related medical expenses up to your limits of liability.
  • Damage to another’s property: One of your employees breaks a customer’s lamp in their home while cleaning their office space. We will cover the subsequent claim up to your limits of liability.
  • Personal injury: One of your employees is at lunch. He talks to the owner of the shop about one of your clients in a false and unflattering way. The client learns of this discussion and sues for slander. We will cover the subsequent claim, up to your limits of liability, and pay for an attorney to defend you if necessary.

Who needs it?

Professions that commonly need cleaning insurance include:

  • Carpet Cleaning
  • House Cleaning
  • Laundry Services
  • Dry Cleaning
  • Office Cleaning
  • Commercial Cleaning

What does it cost?

Your cleaning insurance cost will typically depend on the specific types of cleaning services you do. For example, a house cleaning business typically dusts, vacuums and mops, while a commercial cleaning business usually waxes floors, and cleans around large machinery. These variances expose each business to different levels of risk that’ll likely cause their rates to differ.

Things You Should Know

Why Do I Need Commercial Liability Insurance?

If you operate an janitorial or building maintenance business, you know how much planning and effort is involved to make your operations both safe and successful for everyone involved. Even with the most careful planning, unexpected situations can arise that you might not be prepared for.  Without adequate liability protection you will have to pay damages and defense costs yourself.  If the damages and costs are high enough you may suffer financial hardship or bankruptcy.

What Does The Commercial General Liability Policy Cover?

This policy was specifically designed to protect your event anywhere in the United States, it’s territories or Canada.  The general liability policy will pay the damages imposed upon you or your business by the law.  It also pays the cost of defending you when a claim is made against your policy.  Coverage is written on a full occurrence basis by an Admitted, A rated US insurance company and is tailored to fit your specific event needs.  The policy will also add the premises owner, venue, sponsors, volunteers and co-producers as additional insureds.

Certificate of Insurance vs Additional Insured Endorsement

When performing your services you will often be asked to provide a certificate of insurance to verify the existence of insurance coverage under specific conditions.  More specifically, the document lists the effective date of the policy, the type of insurance coverage purchased, and the types and dollar amount of applicable liability.

Frequently, another party such as a customers, management company or venue will ask to be named as an additional insured on your policy.  The additional insured then enjoys the benefits of being insured under your policy your for negligent acts and omissions but not for his own negligence.

What is Third Party Property Damage Liability (Care, Custody, Control Liability)

Most liability policies have provisions that exclude coverage for physical damage or loss to property while it is in the care, custody or control of the insured.  Care, Custody, Control Liability (also known as Third Party Property Damage) is an optional coverage that will pay for negligent injury to horses under your control.

Why You Need Workers Compensation

As soon as you hire your first employee, you need the protection of workers’ compensation insurance. Not only do many state laws require it, but the financial security of your business may depend on it.

What Workers’ Compensation Insurance Is

In general, workers’ compensation represents a compromise between employers and employees regarding employment–related injuries or illnesses.  In short, employees relinquish their right to sue employers if they suffer some job–related injury or illness.  But in return, employers agree to provide state–mandated benefits if employees suffer some job–related injury or illness.  And to ensure employees have the money to pay these mandated benefits, most states require that employers demonstrate that they have the financial ability to pay any claims that may arise.  Typically this financial ability is demonstrated through the purchase of workers’ compensation insurance.  Laws regarding workers’ compensation insurance vary by state, so check with your insurance agent or broker to find out exactly what you need and how it’s purchased.

How Workers’ Compensation Insurance Works

Most workers’ compensation insurance policies actually provide two types of coverage:
Workers’ Compensation Coverage.  This type of insurance provides benefits for injured workers as required by state law regardless of who is at fault for the job-related injury or illness. In other words, whatever benefits your state requires, your workers’ compensation policy would provide.
Employers’ Liability Coverage.  This additional coverage protects employers if they are sued for damages arising from employment–related accidents or diseases. However, to collect benefits provided by employer’s liability coverage, the employee, as well as anyone else not covered by workers’ compensation laws (i.e., spouses and dependents), would have to prove that the employer was legally responsible for the employee’s injury or disease.
