President-elect Joe Biden might be missing out on the usual huge public gathering for his inauguration due to the pandemic … but at least he’ll be moving into nice, clean digs.
Although beefing up security and working to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved with Biden’s swearing-in are the top priorities, the government’s also spending some dough to tidy up … according to federal financial docs.
We’ve learned The White House is dropping a little over $44,000 on what’s listed as “Inauguration Carpet Cleaning.” It’s unclear how many rooms will have fresh carpeting … the White House has 132 rooms.
So, if you’re coming to pay POTUS a visit after January 20 … you might need to take your shoes off.
As we’ve reported … Biden’s inauguration is getting scaled back because of COVID-19 concerns, with the ceremony having an “extremely limited” footprint and a “reimagined” parade.
Still, they’ve been setting up the stage for the event since early November, and aren’t sparing any expense in securing it to make sure Biden and VP-elect Kamala Harris are in good hands … and apparently, everyone in The White House will be walking on good, clean carpets.
