When I was first starting out, I had one doozy of a job. About 3000 square ft of cleaning, lots of furniture. Added protector.

The carpet cleaned up nicely and I got all furniture blocked and replaced. All that was left was protector and taking it in. I go to my truck and the hydro sprayer had come loose from my protector. I shrugged and replaced the lid.

I return to my job and start spraying. O get about half the house sprayed when I notice a putrid smell. I shut down the truck and take a whiff of the protector *gag*

So I dump 45 bucks of protector and a dead mouse pops out... I just sprayed black death and rotten mouse parts all over this customer's carpet.

I informed the customer of using a bad batch of protector. And recleaned, sanitized, deodorizer and protected once again.

Twas a miserable day folks.

At the time I was working out of out garage... which is in the middle of the cornfield. The lid was off the product up on my shelf. My assumption is a field mouse fell in while exploring.

does not sound that bad I'm sure many here have had or done worse

I was cleaning a large living room goodyear hose popped a nice leak sprayed black death all over a big white sectional and white carpet.

Customer never knew what happened I cleaned the sofa the room again.

Got a call latter they asked how much more do we owe you for the sofa cleaning?

I said I got some hand prints on it and cleaned it. They still wanted to pay for the cleaning.LOL

Jeff Cross is looking for articles for the "Things I Hate About Cleaning" section in Cleanfax if anyone wants to turn their story into an article.
