Questions About Cleaning Business Insurance

  1. While most states don’t require you to have a trade license, professional cleaners, maids, and housekeepers are generally licensed and bonded to instill confidence in their clients. Additionally, some locations require you to carry some liability insurance before issuing a license.
  2. Property owners may require you to show a proof of insurance or bond before hiring you.
  3. Liability insurance gives you a layer of defense against claims such as those for bodily injury or property damage
  4. Financial peace of mind.
  5. If you use your own equipment, or transport equipment to multiple locations, you will want to protect your equipment against theft, damage, or loss with additional equipment insurance.
  • General liability coverage: You have a $2,000,000 general aggregate, and $1,000,000 limit for each occurrence. This means that if one of your clients files a claim, you can be covered for up to $1,000,000 per occurrence or $2,000,000 aggregate.
  • Products & Completed Operations Aggregate: This is the maximum amount your policy will pay in a 12-month period for bodily injury and property damage claims that result from the products you use to perform your services. However, what’s not included in this policy is products that are sold, or distributed.
  • Damages to Premises Rented: This applies to damage to premises rented to the insured and to damage regardless of cause to premises occupied by the insured for seven days or less.
  • Personal and Advertising Injury Coverage: This includes coverage for claims of false arrest, detention or imprisonment, malicious prosecution, oral or written material which damages someone’s reputation, and violations of the right to privacy. It also provides coverage for claims of false advertising or for stealing someone else’s idea, logo, or other intellectual property.

There are endless claims that you could face as a housekeeper or cleaning professional, but some common claims are slip-and-fall accidents, corrosive materials spilling and causing stains, and damage to a client’s home or possessions. Accidents happen, and when they do, you’ll be glad that you have insurance.
