Bundle general liability with property insurance in a BOP

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.

Workers’ compensation insurance costs for house cleaning businesses

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.

House cleaning businesses pay a median premium of $134 per month or $1,606 per year for commercial auto insurance. This policy covers property damage and medical bills due to an accident involving your business vehicle, along with vehicle damage and theft.

Businesses with company-owned vehicles, such as a van used to transport house cleaning equipment and supplies, must purchase commercial auto insurance. The cost will vary depending on the type and number of vehicles your business owns, together with factors like how often they are driven.

Umbrella / excess liability insurance icon

Commercial umbrella insurance costs for house cleaning businesses

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. Once the underlying policy’s limit is reached, umbrella insurance provides additional protection in increments of $1 million. Your premium depends on the amount of coverage that you buy.

Surety bond icon

Janitorial bond costs for house cleaning businesses

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 an employee’s dishonesty, or an accusation of dishonesty. It compensates your client if they claim that one of your house cleaners stole from them. However, this bond doesn’t cover damage to a client’s property.
