When cleaning companies need to demonstrate that they're insured, they use a Certificate of Liability Insurance. For example, say a client wants to hire you to clean carpets in a building they manage. But first, you have to prove that your insurance meets the requirements outlined in their contract. The client requires cleaning professionals to be bonded before they can begin working.

What Does a Certificate of Insurance Do?
A Certificate of Liability Insurance acts as proof of your coverage, which can help you quickly land client contracts. It lists the important details of your liability coverage, including…
- Policy limits.
- Expiration dates.
- Summary of what is and isn't covered.
- Addendums to your coverage (called "riders" or "endorsements").
- Any additional parties covered by your insurance.
If you hire a subcontractor to work for your business, you might need to add them to your policy as an Additional Insured. When that happens, they will be listed as such on your certificate.
