Hiring an Atlanta maid service? Ask this question!

Posted on June 21, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , |

When you are interviewing Atlanta maid services, be sure that one of the questions you ask is “Do you have workman’s comp insurance?

In Georgia,  businesses are required by law to carry workman’s comp on their employees.  (This is also true in most states – Texas is an exception).  Workman’s compensation insurance  is expensive, and sometimes house cleaning services may cut corners by letting their coverage lapse or never buy it to begin with.   Also, sometimes companies might say they have it when they don’t,  so you want to actually see their certificate of insurance before their visit is scheduled.

This is for your protection and any legitimate company will happily supply this to you; it is a standard request.

If you hire someone to clean for you who is not covered under WC, then you are leaving yourself ridiculously vulnerable.  She may be the sweetest  person in the world but if she injures herself in your home and  she can’t work for a while  and/or pay her bills,  and maybe doesn’t even have  health insurance – her options are limited, and  what else can she do but sue you?

At Sponge & Sparkle, we carry workman’s compensation on all of our employees, and will gladly provide proof of coverage.
