Why You Need Window Cleaners Insurance
Insurance for Window Cleaners is a cover that you must have when you do any kind of window cleaning. It doesn’t matter if you are cleaning the windows of a large skyscraper or a small Bungalow, insurance is there for you to protect you and other people.
An example could be that an employee of yours is cleaning the windows on someone’s house. The ladder they are using slips and they injure themselves so they can’t work. That employee could make a claim against you because he or she can’t work. They could say that you didn’t provide proper training or safety equipment. Claims like this can often be quite large and could have a severe impact on your business if you don’t have insurance.
For the above situation Employers Liability Insurance would cover you for the claim. In fact if you have employees in the UK you will need Employers Liability Insurance by law. With this you would be covered for claims made by employees if they are injured or fall ill whilst at work.
Window cleaning involves risks that other jobs don’t, for example working at heights has risks for yourself, your employees and other people who might be in the area. There are also the risks of damaging the property you are working on.
A claim could be made against you if you accidentally crack a window in a property you are working on. If the window is expensive and you weren’t insured you might have to pay out a significant amount which could mean your business will struggle financially.
You can also make sure that you save on your Window Cleaners Insurance by getting a quote that is for exactly what you need rather than what you don’t need. For example, there is no need for you to take out cover that isn’t appropriate for your business.
