Proudly Serving Contra Costa and Alameda Counties
I’m writing this article for Bryan because I’ve been a client of his too many times to count. Or more accurately, my clients have been clients of his too many times to count. Let me explain…
I work for a Servpro of Antioch specializing in emergency clean-up and restoration, and in doing so I’ve come across many homes, so full of garbage, junk and clutter, that I can’t even begin to describe the messes I’ve seen. The absurdity of the things that some people keep, hide and stow away is absolutely astounding!
One time I was performing a trash-out in Antioch, on the home of an mid-sixties woman who had passed away. She was a hoarder and her house smelled terrible, but not all hoarder homes smell bad. This woman’s home was cluttered, but not full actual trash. Just lots of things she and nobody else would ever use again… ever.
Well, my crew and I were moving the couch at one point and noticed the smell got really bad. After sliding it a few feet, a ziplock sandwich bag was exposed. It turned out the bag contained old poo. Yes, it appeared she defecated in the bag and placed it conveniently under the couch. I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Well, part of the reason it seemed like such a good idea was because her toilet had apparently clogged up and she was too embarrassed by her junk laden home to invite a plumber over to fix it. Shortly after finding this little bagged treat, we returned to the bathroom for it’s turn to be cleaned out. Want to guess what we found in the giant black trash-bag hidden behind the curtain? I’m going to give you a “Close, but no cigar” since I suspect I know what you were thinking.
But no, it wasn’t quite that bad… The hefty bag was filled with tupperware containers all half full of urine. Why she stored the urine rather than pouring it down any drain in the house isn’t the biggest mystery to me though. What I really want to know is how she possibly had so many tupperware containers and what she planned to do when she ran out.
Nonetheless, I am way off track. I was writing to thank Bryan for all the brilliant work he’s done for us, hauling garbage, waste, old cut down trees and removing the remnants of our own demolition jobs.
All American Hauling is the only choice for our garbage removal needs. Thanks Bryan!
