We pay the Berkeley business license tax and the rent registration fees, but those items are not charged to you. Cleaning and disinfecting The apartment will undergo a deep cleaning and disinfection before a guest’s arrival, using the CDC guidelines. In addition to the CDC-standard cleaning, we use a BioSpray Surface Cleaner and Sanitizer system. Here’s a quote from their website: “The quick-drying BioSpray D2 removes residual moisture from surfaces and is recommended for use as a sanitizer on food processing equipment, dairy equipment, food utensils, dishes, silverware, glasses, sink tops, countertops, refrigerated storage, and display equipment and other hard nonporous food contact surfaces. Lab calibrated spray-and-shoot technology for more effective coverage, reaching inside even the smallest cracks and crevices, with better results than manual sprayers or wipes.” Also “BioSpray D2 is a combination of isopropyl alcohol and a powerful quaternary ammonium compound.” It is a hospital-grade disinfectant and is “included on EPA list of disinfectants for use against SARS-COV-2 (Search EPA# 73232-1).” The Fine Print • No smoking anywhere in the apartment or the building! (It's prohibited by Berkeley law in multi-family buildings). • Please remove your shoes, or wear soft shoes or slippers inside the apartment. The apartment has hardwood floors, and your downstairs neighbors will appreciate it. • Please don't run the dishwasher or do laundry after 10 PM. • Please, no parties or loud noise. This is a quiet residential building, and we want to keep it that way! • Sorry, no pets.
