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

This sadly reminded me of a house I did. The gay dudes.. I was sooooo happy I forgot it until I read this.. I am so ready to puke at this very moment. Thanks...... I remember THAT smell.

There used to be a few odors that bothered me but since I started doing the fraternity houses in the summer I've gotten to where almost nothing gags me.

I cleaned a three week old double murder, in mid july in Miami. But that was number two on my most stinky list. The cake taker was a 78 year old lady who accidently took to many laxatives and, well you can imagine.

Here's a fun trick to pull on your helper. Fart in a master closet then send him in there to pick up shoes or something. The look on his face is priceless but be prepared for paybacks!

The one that sticks in my mind is a job I did 3 or 4 years ago. The person had been in the home about 6 weeks and was a pack rat. On top of decomp in hot summer heat and garbage, he was crapping in trash cans and peeing in milk jugs because the septic had problems. I also did a single wide mobile home with 7 years of trash in it with about 20 cats using it as a litterbox too. That lady told us it used to be worse. She could sit in her rocker and touch the ceiling at one point. I fully expected to find her husband when we trashed that house.

Great topic! We have a product now that is a cleaner/disinfectant that will kill the bacteria that causes theodors, totally green, non-toxic, doesn't smell itself just kills odors and all the other stuff like staph, MRSA, and other superbugs, use it a lot in crime labs and crime scene cleanup, bodily fluids, puke, anything. Kills the odors and gives you an opportunity to clean up without all the gagging.

Just cleared out a home of an obsessive compulsive schizophrenic hoarder who passed away in the home. Pretty much every smell in that home grossed me out....

Cleaned a walk-in freezer in a closed down Shells restaurant. It was full of old boxes of crab legs, rats, roaches, and maggots.

I charge very high on those kind of jobs. Pee, poop, Blood but The one that really bother me that I recall once I cleaned a Bedroom and a person was lay down in bed sick for I do not know how long that smell I do not want to remember...ever
The other that pissed me off, is when I ask the costumer: do you want me to kill the smell and they ask me back looking at me saying "What smell???"
