What type of cleaner are you?
If you run a specific type of cleaning business, why not start with one of our tailored quote applications? You’ll soon be comparing quotes from up to eight insurers – here’s a quick preview to get you started:
Offices tend to house expensive, essential equipment. If you or an employee had an accident, would you be ready financially? The costs of replacing computers, printers and other office equipment – not to mention fixtures and fittings – can be very high, so a public liability insurance policy should be a top priority.
Carpet and curtain cleaning
Public liability insurance is an important cover for all cleaners, but if you use an office or depot, you could add a business buildings insurance policy as well. Find out more about carpet cleaner insurance.
Working in someone’s home or holiday let, you need cover for damage to all sorts of possessions and fittings. With solid public liability cover in place, plus a few more specific options, you’re free to get on with the job in hand.
Whether you’re starting a small cleaning business or just want to switch insurers, we offer a range of cleaning business insurance quotes and finding the right policy is easy.
What insurance do cleaners need?
Public liability insurance is an important cover for cleaners and all types of cleaning companies, in case someone is injured or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.
Remember to factor in where you’re based. Whether you work from an office or a depot, or you manage the business from home, our business premises options will help take care of the day to day risks.
Remember too, cleaning tends to revolve around specialist tools and equipment. Have you thought about including business equipment insurance in your policy? Added to your cleaning business insurance, it can keep you fully protected.
Watch the details
If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.
We also provide specific insurance options for housekeeping services – so if your work covers cleaning, ironing, cooking and other household management jobs, let us know when you apply.
