The White House will be disinfected when the current administration leaves next month.
President-elect Joe Biden has reportedly ordered a deep clean of the 55,000 square foot building in Washington DC once current leader Donald Trump vacates the building following his defeat in the US election last month.
It comes after Trump and several members of his team contracted coronavirus over the past few months. ‘Mr Trump’s administration has been riddled with the coronavirus. The Bidens are taking no chances’, a member of the transition team said according to Mail Online.
‘The entire property will be deep-cleaned down to replacing doorknobs and taking down soft furnishings. ‘The virus can linger on hard surfaces so the entire residence and executive offices will be wiped clean with disinfectant to exorcise any trace of Team Trump.’
The clean up will apparently involve a specialist team in hazmat suits. The General Services Administration (GSA), which oversees the cleaning of the office spaces in the East and West Wing, confirmed there would be a deep clean. It added: ‘GSA will thoroughly clean and disinfect the building spaces between the administrations and ensure that everything is up to standard. ‘Cleaning will include, but is not limited to, all furniture, flooring, window treatments, handrails, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, elevator buttons, restroom fixtures and dispensers, door handles and push plates, and lighting fixtures.’
Biden on Tuesday laid out his plan to fight the coronavirus pandemic during his first 100 days in office, saying his administration would vaccinate 100 million Americans, push to reopen schools and strengthen mask mandates. The United States hit a record 16 million COVID-19 cases on Saturday afternoon, with deaths closing in on the 300,000 mark, even as millions of doses of a new Pfizer/Biontech vaccine were expected to start rolling out across the nation on Sunday.
