Why Do Cleaning and Janitorial Services Companies Need Insurance?
Business insurance is important for cleaning and janitorial services, where slips and falls are common. Your company could be held responsible for injuries, whether to your employees or building occupants. A workers’ comp policy covers your employees, while a general liability policy covers legal fees and damages awarded for injuries to non-employees. It can also cover damage to your clients’ property. A commercial auto policy can protect you and your employees if an accident occurs while traveling between client properties.

What are the Different Types of Cleaning and Janitorial Insurance?
At biBERK, we offer six different types of insurance for small business owners like you. Depending on the location of your business and other factors, certain types might be better for you than others.
Workers' Compensation Insurance
This insurance helps protect your business if an employee is injured, contracts an illness, or dies as a result of an incident on the job. It can cover medical costs, legal fees, and lost wages due to the injury.chevron_rightWorkers' Compensation
Property & Liability Insurance
Commonly referred to as a business owner's policy (BOP), it combines general liability insurance with coverage for your company’s property. You'll get protection for the building you own, space you lease, and any property needed to run your business, while also receiving coverage for things like business interruption. This can replace lost income, as well as cover other costs associated with getting your business back up and running, such as the use of a temporary location.chevron_rightProperty & Liability
General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy is important, because general contractors and landlords often require a policy before they hire you. The policy covers damages and legal costs associated with injury claims to customers and other people you don't employ, damage to other people's property that was caused by your business, and medical costs associated with these incidents. It also covers libel, slander, and copyright infringement.chevron_rightGeneral Liability
Every insurance policy you purchase has a maximum value that it will cover in the event of an incident. Umbrella insurance adds another layer of protection: it can cover costs that exceed the limit of another policy, subject to its own limit. Without it, you may be responsible for anything over your policy limit. Business liability suits can easily exceed the actual value of many small businesses, so we highly recommend an umbrella policy to protect your company.chevron_rightUmbrella
This coverage can be purchased as an add-on to a general liability, professional liability, or BOP policy. It helps cover costs related to system hacks or data security breaches in which sensitive information has been stolen and fraud has occurred or there is a reasonable expectation that it might occur.chevron_rightCyber Insurance
Commercial Auto Insurance
If your company owns or leases vehicles, this policy protects the vehicles and drivers from any damage incurred during the course of business. Our commercial auto insurance policies are offered through a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary.chevron_rightCommercial Auto
