Starting New Apartment Cleaning Business

Hi everyone! I am getting ready to start an Apartment Cleaning Business- cleaning the apartments for the complex after tenants move out. I am very familiar with the aspects of cleaning as I have over 5 years experience but not so much the business end. I know that I will need to be licensed and have general liability insurance. My question is will I also need to get workers comp? Did the complexes require this insurance or is general liability enough? I will be the sole cleaner with occasional help from my husband. Will not have any employees yet..

Check your State requirements on WC. Some states do not require owner/ operators to carry WC, even though you have the option of paying in. However, that does not mean the management company won't require it. Some may want a 2 million general liability policy as opposed to a 1 million policy. There may be additional bonding required as well. You need to get yourself out there are see what, if any, road blocks you are facing in terms of your current insurance coverages and then adjust accordingly in order to secure accounts.

Very nice idea, my suggestion is better start day porter services along with that because many people needed day porter service rather that regular commercial cleaning services.
