The cost of house cleaning insurance depends on the policies you choose, the unique risks your company faces, the value of your cleaning equipment, and the size of your business. Cost estimates are sourced from policies purchased by Insureon customers.
House cleaning businesses pay a median premium of $42 per month or $504 annually for general liability insurance.
This policy protects house cleaners against lawsuits over customer property damage and injuries, such as a client tripping over a vacuum cleaner while a maid is working. It also protects against advertising injury lawsuits, such as a competitor suing your company for saying something negative about them on social media.

Insureon’s licensed agents typically recommend purchasing a business owner’s policy (BOP), which bundles general liability insurance with commercial property insurance, often at a discount. It protects your own business property and cleaning equipment and guards against common third-party risks.
Cleaning businesses in general pay a median premium of $43 per month or $520 annually for a BOP, likely because only small, low-risk businesses are eligible. The cost primarily depends on the value of your business property.

The median cost of workers' compensation insurance for house cleaning businesses is $138 per month or $1,655 annually. The cost depends on which state your business is located in, the number of employees you have, and your profession’s risks.
Workers' compensation is required in almost every state for house cleaning businesses with employees. This coverage helps pay medical bills and lost wages for employees who are injured on the job.

Most companies purchase commercial umbrella insurance when they need to satisfy a client’s requirements for higher limits on their general liability insurance. House cleaning businesses pay a median premium of $51 per month or $606 per year for this policy.
Umbrella insurance boosts the limits of your house cleaning company’s general liability, commercial auto, and employer’s liability insurance in $1 million increments. Once the underlying policy’s limit is reached, umbrella insurance provides additional protection. Your premium depends on the amount of coverage that you buy.

With a median cost of only $8 per month or $100 per year for house cleaners, a janitorial bond is an affordable way to gain client trust. The cost of a janitorial service bond is determined by the amount of coverage you purchase.
A janitorial bond is a type of surety bond that protects against losses caused by dishonest employees. If one of your house cleaners steals from a client, it would compensate the client. However, this bond doesn’t cover damage to a client’s property.
