Insuring your cleaning business
As a professional cleaner you’re in a position of trust with your clients. You take pride in what you do and you respect their property and privacy. But you can’t think of everything, and challenges do come up. Things get broken, people have accidents and clients may not always be satisfied with you work. Hiscox protects you with a tailored insurance policy that covers legal liability claims and the other risks you face as a cleaner.
Why you need to insure your cleaning business
As a professional you’ll take the time to understand and agree exactly what your clients expect of you, but that doesn’t mean you won’t run intro trouble. You have your own exacting standards, but there’s always the chance that a client won’t be satisfied with your work. They might discuss it with you directly first, but if they decide to take action against you, it’s important to be protected.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a domestic cleaner or you work in offices, you know the importance of handling other people’s property with care. Still, accidents happen and whether a high-spec TV topples off its stand while you’re dusting or one of your new employees spills a drink over an office printer, we’ll cover the compensation costs you need to pay.
Accidents and injury
A client could return home early and slip on a wet floor, or trip over the cable of your vacuum cleaner. You may not think you’re liable as the accident took place in their home, but any injury caused by your professional services could lead to a public liability claim. Taking out the right insurance means we’ll be there to help with costs, you’ll only have to pay the excess.
