Employee illness, property damage and bodily injury are just a few of the many risks that can threaten the financial health of your cleaning business if you’re not adequately insured. Cleaning insurance is designed to protect you from the negative effects these risks could cause, helping you to stay in business and remain profitable.
Professions that commonly need cleaning insurance include:
Your cleaning insurance cost will typically depend on the specific types of cleaning services you do. For example, a house cleaning business typically dusts, vacuums and mops, while a commercial cleaning business usually waxes floors, and cleans around large machinery. These variances expose each business to different levels of risk that’ll likely cause their rates to differ. Insurance companies generally consider your coverage needs, claims history, number of employees and other factors before providing you with a final rate.
General Liability: Some clients might require you have this common coverage before you can work for them. It can cover instances of bodily injury and property damage that happen while on the job.
Commercial Auto: Coverage for vehicles used to travel to jobsites and transport work supplies like towels, mops, buckets and cleaning products. We insure vehicles commonly used by cleaning businesses including cargo vans and cars.

Typically, homeowners insurance covers fence damage under your policy’s other structures coverage, if the fence is maintained well and the damage isn’t caused by carelessness. For example, if a well-maintained tree collapses and demolishes your fence, your insurance company will most likely cover the damage. However, if the tree that causes the damage was diseased or maintained poorly, your insurance company could deny the claim.
Homeowners insurance may cover fences blown down by wind and other wind-related fence damage, as long as your policy doesn’t exclude wind coverage. Just as with fence damage from a storm, the fence needs to have been maintained well before the wind event.
When a car crashes into your fence, you have multiple options. Most likely, you’ll hold the driver accountable and file a claim against their car insurance policy. All states but New Hampshire require drivers to have a specific amount of property damage liability coverage, so the at-fault driver’s insurance may cover the damage. Alternatively, you could file a claim with your homeowners policy, but you’d need to meet your deductible before coverage kicks in.
