Things to look out for - Exclusions and tips

To make sure that you get the most from your Public Liability Insurance for Cleaners, you need to make sure that you bear these things in mind when choosing your policy and running your business:

Public Liability excesses
Given that the work covered by a Cleaners Public Liability Insurance may differ, policy excesses will vary according to your activities.

Statutory exemption from Employers Liability cover
If you run a family business in which your employees are closely related to you, you would usually be exempt from Employers Liability unless your business is run as a Limited company

Policy restrictions
Some insurers will restrict cover by applying height or depth limits, or by restricting the use of heat equipment. You may also find with certain Cleaners Public Liability Insurance Policies that the types of premises you are insured to work upon are restricted.

Theft of tools
You will know that equipment theft is an occupational hazard for the cleaning trade. Because of this, most insurers have conditions which specify minimum security requirements to reduce the risk. For example, your policy is likely to require that you store your tools out of sight and inside a locked van or building overnight.
