Janitorial Cleaning Services Bond
A janitorial bond protects both your clients and your business against the unforeseen expense of reimbursing a customer for their loss. For this reason, many states require janitorial services companies to secure a cleaning service bond.
What is a Janitorial Services Bond?
Janitorial bonds protect your janitorial services company against claims of employee theft. They are also known as janitorial services bonds, custodian bonds, or home services bonds.
Janitorial services and other home services companies are particularly vulnerable to employee dishonesty. Your employees have access to your customer’s equipment, supplies, personal belongings, and other assets. In addition, your employees are easy targets for blame. If your customer finds something missing, they are likely to suspect those who do the cleaning.
Janitorial cleaning service bonds help protect your business. Additionally, these cleaning services bonds provide protection to your customers from losses incurred by the dishonest acts of your employees (both full- and part-time).
How Much Does a Janitorial Bond Cost?
Your cleaning service bond premium depends on how many employees you have, your business location, and the type of services you offer. Often, businesses with five or fewer employees can get bonded for under $300.
