Party Bus Cleaning — Keeping you safe within our experience
Honky Tonk Party Express buses are maintained in accordance with an established program aimed at providing a clean and inviting environment for you and your guests. In addition to bleaching the interior of each bus in between tours, which includes benches, bar tops, and handrails, we professionally power wash the interior and exterior of each bus with an EPA approved cleaning solution. Each bus then receives 5 days worth of UV sunlight. As of April 15th, 2020, research has shown that direct sunlight for only 2-5 hours has been shown not only to kill the COVID-19 virus but a natural disinfectant for any and all viruses.
Cleaning Process and Procedure
● The Disinfectant - We use is a 80/20 hospital-grade interior disinfectant mix for the cabin area of the bus which is used before tours, in-between tours, and after every tour. No towel will be reused after one use.
● Hand Sanitizer - Each bus will be equipped for sanitizer that will be available for every guest, as well as used by our driver and VIP bartender.
● Serving Utensils - Each tour will have a clean serving utensil disposable cups. An example is a clean ice scoop for each tour, 1 use disposable cups, and clean towels for wiping down the bus.
● Power Washing - Every operational bus gets power washed on the interior and exterior with an EPA approved cleaner at 400 psi. This includes benches, rails, and bartender area.
● UVA Sunlight - As of April 15th 2020 research has proven that direct sunlight aides in helping kill the COVID-19 virus. Though further research is needed, each bus receives over 5 days’ worth of direct UVA sunlight to further help disinfect our buses.
● Employee Mask - Each employee, this includes bartender, driver and check-in staff shall be required to wear a mask until further notice. Guests are not required to wear masks but are allowed to wear them if they see fit.
