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. We don't allow smoking of any kind, including "vaping" (e-cigarettes). • Please remove your shoes, or wear soft shoes or slippers inside the apartment. The apartment has hardwood floors, and your downstairs neighbors will appreciate your efforts to reduce the sound from footsteps and other activities where the noise may carry. • Please don't use the dishwasher or do laundry after 10 PM. • Please, no parties or other loud noise. This is a quiet residential building, and we want to keep it that way! • Sorry, no pets.
