As the owner of a cleaning business, there’s likely nothing quite like seeing your customers satisfied with their freshly sanitized home or business.
Of course, owning a cleaning business does come with certain risks. Cleaning companies—including janitorial services, home cleaners, business cleaners, window washers, and launderers—carry a unique set of hazards to employees, customers, and even property.
Your employees may face on-the-job risks such as chemical exposure or repetitive stress injuries. Your customers could become injured by slipping on freshly mopped floors or tripping over cords. Your storage warehouse could be damaged due to fire or catastrophic weather.
Fortunately, when your business carries the right types of cleaning service insurance coverage, your customers, employees, and small business property may be covered.
