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.

Boost your liability coverage with umbrella insurance

Most companies purchase commercial umbrella insurance to satisfy a client’s requirements for higher limits on their general liability insurance. Cleaning businesses in general pay a median premium of $63 per month or $758 per year for this policy.

Umbrella insurance boosts the limits of your window cleaning company’s general liability, commercial auto, or 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.

Workers’ compensation insurance costs for window cleaning businesses

The median cost of workers’ compensation insurance for cleaning businesses is $149 per month or $1,786 annually. The cost depends on which state your business is located in, the number of employees you have, and your profession’s risks. Window cleaners may pay a little more for this policy given the increased chance of injury.

Workers’ compensation is required in almost every state for window cleaning businesses with employees. This coverage helps pay medical bills and lost wages for employees who are injured on the job. Most policies include employer’s liability insurance, which provides protection in case one of your cleaners sues over a work injury.

Commercial auto insurance costs for window cleaning businesses

Cleaning businesses in general pay a median premium of $130 per month or $1,556 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 window 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.

Surety bond icon

Janitorial bond costs for window cleaning businesses

With a median cost of only $8 per month or $100 per year for 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 window cleaners stole from them. However, this bond doesn’t cover damage to a client’s property.
