[Ed. – Biden has handled the outside of his face mask repeatedly since he began wearing one. The CDC advises holding the face mask only by the ear loops when attaching or removing it. If Biden hasn’t contacted the virus from his own inability to follow health advisories, he’s not going to get from carpet that the Trump administration walked on.]
The White House will spend a little over $44,000 to deep clean its carpets before President-elect Joe Biden moves in amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report.
According to federal financial documents cited by TMZ, the amount will be spent on “Inauguration Carpet Cleaning” inside the 55,000-square-foot mansion, which has 132 rooms.
It is unclear how many rooms will have fresh carpeting, according to the outlet.
While a major scrubbing of the presidential home occurs regularly when a new commander-in-chief moves in, a more thorough cleaning is expected this time around due to the virus.
President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and their son Barron all caught the bug, as did other people in their orbit.
