Questions About Cleaning Business Insurance
- 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.
- Property owners may require you to show a proof of insurance or bond before hiring you.
- Liability insurance gives you a layer of defense against claims such as those for bodily injury or property damage.
- Financial peace of mind.
- 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.

As a professional cleaner, you face risks every day on the job. Having insurance protects you from these risks while adding an additional layer of protection, so that you don’t end up having to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket. Insurance provides a financial safety net for when those unplanned incidents happen.
Cleaning business insurance from Insurance Canopy starts at $26.67 per month, although the total monthly cost varies depending on your specific situation and the amount of coverage you require. Some of the factors that will influence the cost of your policy are the size of your business, annual employee payroll (including owner), desired coverage amounts and limits, and the state where the business is located.
There are several factors that can potentially affect your policy price. This includes any endorsements you add, the number of employees you have, the number of additional insureds added to your policy, if you elect to include cyber coverage or tools and equipment coverage, and others. Cyber coverage is an additional $99 per year, each additional insured is $50, and the tools and equipment coverage depends on your occurrence and annual limit selection. All of this information is available online for you to see while you are filling out your application. You can speak with one of our licensed agents with any questions you have about these options, before adding them to your policy.

For many service industries, bonding is no longer mandated. Bond insurance is like an extra level of coverage designed to reassure your customers and clients that they will be reimbursed if your business fails to complete a project, violates regulations, or breaks the terms of a contract. A fidelity bond protects policyholders from fraudulent acts, including theft and damage. A business owner would take out a fidelity bond to insure their business from potential fraudulent acts committed by its employees. Choosing the right insurance coverage options is important and will vary based on your services as a cleaning professional.
- 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 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.
