What does pressure washing insurance cover?

Pressure Washing Insurance usually includes general liability insurance, so you’ll be protected against claims of bodily injury and third party property damage, and associated defense costs and medical expenses.

Here are a few examples of liabilities that Pressure Washing Insurance covers, so that you can see just how a general liability policy would work for your business:


Bodily injury

You leave a hose running across your customer’s driveway. If they trip over it on the way into the house, you could be held liable for their medical expenses.


Property damage

You crank the PSI on your machine to try to speed up the job. If you accidentally graze some of a client’s expensive lawn decor, you’d likely be responsible for the repair or replacement.


Personal and advertising injury

Growing a business often means you’re trying to edge ahead of the competition. If you start advertising your services compared to someone else and your competitor claims your ads were defamatory, you might need insurance to help you “lawyer up.”

How much does Pressure Washing Insurance cost?

Pressure washing businesses on average pay $121 per day, $103 per month or $,1233 per year for general liability insurance. With Thimble, you can purchase a policy by the job, month or year, so you’ll only pay for the time you’re working.

It’s always best to get a quote in order to understand exactly what your insurance will cost you, but a quote from Thimble is based on just a few important factors:

  • Policy Length – If you’re purchasing insurance for a one-off pressure washing gig, then the duration of your policy could be as short as an hour. On the other hand, if you’re booking pressure washing jobs year-round, then purchasing insurance for a longer-term basis could be the more cost effective option.
  • Who’s Covered – You also need to decide how many people your pressure washing business insurance policy will cover. Included in this list of covered individuals should be any employee or volunteer who helps you complete your pressure washing services. Making the investment to insure your entire team now could save you untold sums down the line.
  • Policy Add-Ons – Finally, many pressure washing insurance policies allow you to tack on coverage for additional, adjacent business activities. For instance, Thimble allows you to add on coverage for similar services like exterior painting and chimney cleaning. With this add-on coverage, you can customize your policy to cover all of the services you might perform for customers. This add-on coverage will broaden your policy and allow you to avoid purchasing individual, one-size-fits-all policies for each service you perform.

One major tip for saving on insurance for pressure washing services: never pay for more than you need. With Thimble, you won’t find yourself locked into an overpriced, inflexible policy. Get affordable, customized coverage by the job, month, or year instead, and get your Certificate of Insurance in minutes. Plus, if you need to add your clients as Additional Insureds, you can tack them onto your coverage with Thimble instantly.
