details of cleaning of the WH


The afternoon of Inauguration Day, then-President Biden will participate in a ceremonial wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery, joined by former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. It is during these hours the bulk of the Bidens' personal effects will be moved into the White House and unpacked, according to another source with knowledge of executive residence practices.

By that time, all Trump paraphernalia will be gone, and a thorough top-to-bottom cleaning of the entire White House campus will have been completed. Deeper cleaning protocols were arranged via the White House with outside contractors, on top of regular cleaning done by staff, including specialized attention to rugs, carpets, curtains and surfaces, to tackle any possibility of lingering germs, of the Covid-19 sort or otherwise.

"Moving furniture and vacuuming, cleaning baseboards, vacuuming drapes, wiping down shades, cleaning chandeliers, washing windows, high dusting," are areas all covered during the traditional move-in of a new president and his family, according to the residence source. "That cleaning will start as soon as Donald Trump and Melania Trump depart."

A particular focus of this move will be paid to the bedrooms in the residence, where new mattresses and box springs for the incoming first family are standard operating procedure, according to the source. Yet one part of the bedroom set-up will be markedly different with the Bidens than it was for the Trumps: the Bidens will be sharing a bedroom. Melania Trump spent the majority of her time in the White House in the large bedroom suite typically reserved for Presidents and their spouse, adjacent to the West Sitting Hall, according to a source with knowledge of the arrangement.

"Donald Trump slept in his own bedroom, which was previously a study or den during other administrations," the source said of the arrangement.

24. I hope they check for Putin bugs.

Also look for feces on the walls, improvised explosive devices, trap doors, and buckets of water perched over door sills.

7. I was wondering about that - as I understand it standard procedure is separate bedrooms

But I had a feeling that wouldn't hold for the new President.

10. "to tackle any possibility of lingering germs" Yeah, right.

That's a very polite way of saying, "get the filthy pee stank outta there."

26. I hope they thoroughly clean and disinfect the HVAC systems.

That's where a lot of germs and bacteria can hide, including deplorable Rethug ones.

Looking forward to a return to a normal White House and sane Government.
