Public liability insurance for window cleaners
As a window cleaner, you will come into contact with members of the public on a regular basis. This means you’ll need public liability insurance to protect your business against claims made by third parties for injury or damage suffered because of your business.
When you’re working with ladders and dealing with water and chemicals, there is always a chance that something could go wrong. For example, a member of the public might slip on excess water underneath a window you are cleaning in a shopping centre, suffering a back injury as a result. Or you might damage delicate tiles on a customer’s roof with your ladder.
In cases like these, you could find yourself facing large compensation costs and legal fees. Public liability insurance for window cleaners will protect your finances in such scenarios.
Do I need window cleaners’ insurance?
As a window cleaner, you may need certain types of insurance. No matter how careful you are, something can always go wrong when you’re cleaning windows. If it does and you lack appropriate insurance, you could face serious financial consequences.
For example, if you are working at height and a piece of equipment falls and lands on a passer-by, causing serious injuries, could you cover the associated legal and compensation costs? Or perhaps you scratch a large windowpane while cleaning it, meaning you have to pay to replace it. If your finances would come under strain when faced with expenses like these, it can be essential to have the right insurance in place.
Think about the equipment you use too. If this is lost, stolen or damaged, could you afford to replace or repair it? If not, you will need tools insurance. And if you have employees, by law, you must take out employers’ liability insurance.
