Talk about living in a hazmat suit. Nowhere gets deep cleaned. That’s so 2020. Get back in your panic room and scrub away.

There is no legal requirement to deep clean. I asked at Gate Pa New World and said it hasn’t been done. Doesn’t worry me either.

How long...

...after a site is identified as contaminated , before it is safe to go there? Can we assume that deep cleaning occurs right away? Is there a legal requirement for it?
