Bathroom Cleaning Insurance


Public and Employers Liability Insurance for Bathroom Cleaning

GLEAMING INSURANCE are specialist insurance brokers to the bathroom cleaning industry and can provide your business with the level of specialist protection it needs.  We are recognized and approved by many trades associations as specialists in the industry.

Not all insurance companies provide public liability insurance for bathroom cleaning. Many will exclude this work, but GLEAMING INSURANCE does provide bathroom public liability insurance protection for many clients across the UK.

We can include cover for:

Damage to Property Worked On


This covers you if you are accused of damaging whatever you are cleaning whether that be the tiles, rugs or carpet or bathroom furniture such as shower screens, etc. Without this extension to your cover, you would be left to deal with the matter yourself. 

Treatment Risks


If you use solutions or chemicals during the cleaning process (including bleach) then you probably know it is common for damage to be caused by such products.  Such damage is covered under the Treatment Risks extension.  Many insurers exclude claims caused where bleach has been used, but not ours.

Loss of Customers' Keys

If you are responsible for holding keys for your customers then you will need to ensure you have cover should you lose them.  Our policy provides key holding cover as standard.

Failure to Secure a Customer's Premises

When you leave a premise you have cleaned you may be responsible for locking up and setting alarms and if you fail to do this you could be liable should anyone break into the premises. Our policy covers you for such occurrences.

Losses from Dishonesty

You will have undoubtedly made checks on all your staff or self-employed cleaners but you could still be exposed to potential claims should one of them decide to steal from your customers.  The insurer will pay for the sums you have to pay as compensation to your client following fraud and dishonesty.  However, they will not make any payments for your clients losses;

  • where you do not have a suitable reference for the employee covering the period of at least 2 years immediately prior to commencement of employment with you; 

  • unless you notify us of such losses during the period of insurance or within 30 days of expiry of the period of insurance;
