Insureon Launches Resource-Rich Microsite for Janitors, Maids, and Cleaning Businesses
Risk-management and business-growth resources provide guidance for the nation's 2.26 million cleaning businesses.
CHICAGO—December 16, 2014—Insureon, the nation's leading agent of commercial insurance for small and micro businesses, today announced the launch of buildingservices.insureon.com, a microsite dedicated to providing resources to help owners of janitorial, maid, and cleaning businesses manage their risks and stay profitable.
There are 2.26 million janitorial firms with fewer than 10 employees in the United States, and the industry is expected to grow 12 percent by 2022. To help owners of cleaning businesses make the most of that growth, insureon's new microsite includes a variety of materials that address some of the trickiest decisions these business owners face: whether or not to start as a franchise, how to draft effective customer contracts, tips on choosing between new and used cleaning equipment, and guidelines on when and why to get bonded.
"Learning a trade and learning a business are two very different things," said Ted Devine, CEO of insureon. "Cleaning professionals work hard to keep our homes, schools, and offices spotless. These resources provide some of the tools they need to keep the financial side of their business in similar shape."
In addition to how-to guides, building services.insureon.com provides sample business insurance quotes for a variety of cleaning professions so that business owners can get an idea of how much to budget for insurance before they ever purchase a policy. It also includes an Ask-a-Question function, where business owners can submit questions that aren't answered on the site and get answers from insureon's team of cleaning business insurance experts.
The new buildingservices.insureon.com is part of insureon's ongoing efforts to provide robust educational resources to small-business owners around the country. In addition to ongoing publication of industry-specific material, insureon maintains its Small Business Institute (ISBI), where it offers insight on pricing trends for small commercial policies.
Insureon is the nation's source for small business insurance. In addition to offering General Liability and Professional Liability Insurance, insureon provides a variety of educational materials designed to help business owners implement risk management best practices.
