A lot of industries have been unable to make ends meet due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the cleaning industry, however, there has been positive growth. With the growth of any industry, however, there are also risks.
How COVID-19 Changed the Janitorial Industry
COVID-19 has led to steady growth within the cleaning industry. As companies begin to open their doors yet again, there is a new standard of cleanliness. This is not expected to change any time soon. Regulations in regards to cleanliness are going to remain strict and businesses will have high-expectations. To prevent the spread of the virus, janitorial businesses are even more important.
How COVID-19 May Affect Liability Claims
With customer growth, there is also concern about new liability claims. It’s easy to be swept away by the amount of work, but cleaning services should never consider cutting corners. Cleaning services have to live up to a high standard, regardless of the client.
If someone in your company cuts corners while cleaning and there is an outbreak in a building, could you be held liable for it? Clients could potentially take legal action against you if they are not satisfied with your work.
The cleaning industry looks promising, but it is important to remember that janitorial companies during COVID-19 also face a lot of risks when it comes to unhappy clients. Without liability insurance, you a claim could be devastating.
