The November issue of Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring "The ABCs Of Protecting A Cleaning Business" by Deb Denker.
Denker states that when something goes wrong, such as an accident that results in unexpected costs or legal action, building service contractors (BSCs) are likely to feel an unwelcomed spotlight of concern from their customers.
She notes that "A" stands for the coverage that "all" businesses need; "B" is for the coverage that "building" owners will value; and "C" is for the coverage that specifically addresses "cleaning" company risks.
Denker adds that minding your ABCs of buying business insurance will help you identify a carrier that has thought about the unique exposure and corresponding coverage of the BSC industry.
According to Denker, once the right policy is in place, you can worry less about the impact of a claim and instead focus on making a clean sweep to deliver satisfaction to your customers.
Deb Denker is the industry manager for building services contractors for Travelers Commercial Accounts.
