What is an Iowa Janitorial Service Bond?
An Iowa Janitorial Service Bond is a type of Business Service Bond that aims to protect the Janitorial Service Company’s clients in case one of its employees commit a misconduct such as stealing while inside the client’s home or business establishment.
While this bond remains optional, it is also often expected by many clients, and preferred by business owners because it is an inexpensive business investment and easy to procure!
What is the Janitorial Service bond amount?
It varies. The bond amount will depend on the number of employees the Janitorial Service Company has, or it can also be based on the owner’s bond amount preference.
You can secure a $5,000 surety bond for your company that has 5 or fewer employees. With the aforementioned bond amount, you can pay as little as $100 for the annual premium!
You can also opt for a higher bond amount for the same number of employees if you so wish.
