A cleaning services contract explains and defines the relationship between a cleaning company and the client it serves. While every contract is different, a commercial cleaning contract usually outlines…
- Which services you will provide for a client.
- How much these services will cost.
- When you will be paid.
- What types of cleaning insurance you're required to have.
- Which party is responsible for accidents, injuries, and property damage.
- How much responsibility you have for accidents.
Business contracts always include a section for "indemnity," which defines and sometimes limits what each party can be sued for. Unfortunately for small-business owners, you don't have much bargaining power. Typically, your client contracts will hold you fully responsible for theft, property damage, injuries, and other problems that could lead to a lawsuit.
