Why Do Cleaning Professionals Need Insurance?
Is Cleaning Insurance Required by Law?
Whether the law requires you to carry liability insurance for cleaning varies. It can change according to what type of business you run and its location. General liability insurance is generally not a legal requirement for cleaning professionals—but it’s always a good idea. If you have employees, or own a vehicle associated with your business, you’re probably required to have workers compensation or commercial auto insurance. Check with your local authorities to see what regulations exist in your area, and note that they can vary by state as well as by city or town.
Why Do I Need Cleaning Insurance?
Having insurance for your cleaning business is just like wearing protective gloves or a face mask while you’re handling hazardous materials: it can protect you and allow you to focus on performing your job with confidence.
And just like gloves or a face mask, cleaning insurance also proves to your customers that you’re serious about what you do. Cleaning someone’s home or office requires trust; you’re in their space, often when they are not there, and can’t monitor you. When you have cleaning insurance, you don’t need to worry that something going wrong will threaten your business or your income.
How Will Having Insurance for Cleaning Impact My Business?
Aside from the peace of mind that it gives you, having insurance sends a strong message to your clients about your level of professionalism.

What Kind of Cleaning Insurance Should I Have?
There are various different types of cleaners insurance that we might recommend. The specifics depend on the structure of your business, the type of equipment you use, and more. The most basic type of insurance that we recommend for all cleaning professionals, however, is general liability insurance.
General liability insurance can protect your business in the unlikely event of a mishap that someone might blame on your business. It can cover three main types of incidents: bodily injury, personal injury and property damage.
“Bodily injury,” in this context, means someone other than you or your employees gets hurt because of something connected to your business. For example, if someone doesn’t notice your “Caution: Wet Floor” sign, slips on a recently mopped floor and breaks a wrist, general liability insurance could compensate him and cover his medical expenses.
“Personal injury” refers to other, less tangible types of damage to someone as a result of your business. For example, maybe you were organizing an executive’s desk and came across information in the papers you’re putting away. After you mentioned something you saw to someone else, you realized you have leaked confidential company information. If the company sued you for damage resulting from that leak, general liability cleaner’s insurance could cover your legal expenses.
“Property damage” refers to a situation where you or your business are to blame for harm coming to something belonging to someone else. As a cleaner, you’re handling other people’s possessions all the time. No matter how cautious and respectful you are, you’re only human! If you accidentally break a mirror, or spill a chemical that ruins a carpet, general liability insurance could pay for a replacement.
Next Insurance’s general liability policy for cleaning professionals is based on careful research. We tailor our policies specifically to the needs of your business, giving you coverage for the things you really need and leaving out the extras that you don’t—offering you great coverage that is also very affordable.

You want to be sure you’re getting insurance from a company that will provide you with good service you can trust. And, of course, you want to be sure you’re not overpaying for your coverage, or buying coverage you just don’t need.
