Whether you work as a domestic cleaner, or as part of a team that undertakes end of tenancy cleans, there is a good chance that you will, at some point have to clean an oven.
And let's face it, ovens can get very very dirty, full of food waste and grime and that sometimes needs both a lot of elbow grease, and some strong chemicals to shift.
But are you insured for the damage you might cause, and are you covered for the damage that the chemicals may cause?
Most standard policies don't cover these risks, and that is why you will need the help of a specialist insurer like GLEAMING INSURANCE
Lots of thing can go wrong and we have seem them all in our claims department, from scratched hobs, to broken glass doors - we have even had claims for the number and lettering coming off the dials!
In order that you can be fully protected, you will need specialist cover extensions to your public liaility insurance policy
"Damage to Property Worked On" - this is cover for when you are working on the carpet and cause damage to it yourself, or with your tools and equipment.
"Treatment Risks" - this is cover for damage caused by chemicals or solutions that are applied during the cleaning process.
Without these extensions, yes you will have a cheap policy, but you will also be left to pick up the costs of any damage that you might cause.
All of a sudden, that cheap policy won't be worth the paper it is written on.
