Janitorial Additional Insureds
Janitorial Insurance customers also have the option to add additional insureds to their coverage for $50. Third parties may want to be added to your insurance policy by endorsement so that your policy may protect them from third-party claims arising out of your negligence. This means that you can add property management or HOA’s to your insurance policy so they can receive protection if they are named in a suit due to a covered business-related loss or claim you have caused.

Questions About Janitorial Insurance

Rest easy with Insurance Canopy knowing that you have janitorial insurance.

Janitorial insurance coverage provides coverage for general liability, damage to premises rented, personal and advertising injury, medical expenses, and more.

You may be required to have insurance in order to obtain a business license in your state. While some states do not require janitors to have a trade license, there are many that do. Insurance coverage can also instill confidence in your current and potential clients.

  • Property managers and owners may require that you provide proof of insurance before they sign a contract with you.
  • Liability insurance provides a layer of defense against claims such as bodily injury or property damage claims.
  • If you use or transport your equipment to multiple locations, you will want to protect it against theft, damage, or loss with additional inland marine coverage.
  • Financial peace of mind. When an accident occurs, you won’t need to worry because Insurance Canopy has you covered. You’ll already have a policy in place, and you won’t be scrambling to try and find coverage.
  • Your customers will be able to rely on you more because businesses that are insured come off as more credible and trustworthy. This trust instilled in your customers helps you to do your job better and keep your clients satisfied.

Janitorial bonding protects your company against claims of employee theft. Because janitorial companies are particularly vulnerable to employee theft, some companies consider purchasing janitorial bonding.

Insurance Canopy does not provide bonding. Depending on your business and state requirements, bonding may not be required. Be sure to check with local requirements to see whether or not your business needs bonding. In many cases, an insurance policy is all your business will need.
