    I have seen millions of pee spots and the odors accompanying them. Not my favorite but no biggy.

    But the smell I can not stand outta almost all of them, Including human remains. Is the smell of FILTHY STINKY FOOT ODOR!!!!!!! :mad:
    I dont why or what it is about foot odors. I will decline a job.
    and nothing grosses me out more than In the middle of cleaning, I lay down the wand to move something, then pick it up the wand, thinking nothing of it. Then while loading up i smell that nasty odor. on my hands, I now its on the wand, hoses, rake and the bottom of my shoes.:mad::mad:

    I have used a bottle of pine-sol before spraying anything and everything that touched the carpets. I will bathe in pinesol to get rid of that stench........and it always seems You cant really notice it until you start cleaning. haha


    what is your pet peeve odor??

    One of the odors that gets me is the smell of foreign people sometimes. I know it's not related to cleaning, but some of those fools reek bad enough to singe the hairs in my nose!

    For some reason first thing in the morning my stomach is very week and any fowl odor turns it or sight of something gross. Later in the day I am fine. I do remember doing a water removal job for a apartment complex and the lady lived there for 12 years with fifteen cats. As i was working they were spraying and it got into my throat with my eyes watering. I could only work 5 minutes at a time and than had to go out for fresh air. As I was packing up I threw up every wheres . That taste was in my throat was for the rest of the day. I am gagging thinking about it.

    Of coarse all we Americans smell like all those tasty foods, it's awesome. Chicks follow us everywhere we go, especially the foreign girls. ;)

    I have to agree with that rank odor of cat pee. I am thinking I may become allergic to cats and be unable to clean any more cat odor problems. Its just that bad

    Ive been cleaning professionally since 1997, and have smelled everything.

    The smell that still is in my mind would have to be when I repaired the 2" black waste tank dump valve on my truck-mount. I took the 4 bolts out to change the o-rings and that is when the smell of death hit me. Worst smell ever...LOL

    A rat died in my A/C system once in my van and that was a nasty smell. A real bad fart is bad too unless it is mine.

    lol thats funny.. I use a crappy vac for nasties like that.. Its also not a good idea to breathe in the exhaust particles of the vacuum. wear masks not the SARS looking paper mache one. full on dual filtered ones. Trust me all it takes is one time to breathe in the wrong thing. and your done. I even forget sometimes. and paid the price for it too. need a wand mounted holder. lol

    The odor from a bedroom of 2 gay guys I cleaned for; you know the big biker leather wearing guys.:eek::rolleyes:

    Well not only was I grossed out by that I kept gagging from the smell after I presprayed. Way worse than the time I used my kero heater in an apartment full of cat pee and created cat pee vapor cloud!!!:AddEmoticons04259::rolleyes::eek:hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!


    Oh BTW; that why I won't use Propane or Kero heaters in apartments anymore

    All joking aside, in jobs like this, you can wear a respirator mask designed against vapors. With those on you dont smell a thing no matter how bad it is.

    The smell of a gallon of blood in the waste tank might not be the worst I've smelled, but definitely takes the longest to go away no matter how much you flush it out.
