I’m a cleaner. This is the disgusting reality of how Aussie renters leave their homes – and the strange items I’ve found
- Sydney cleaner shared video of dirty home
- Video shows piles of clothes, dishes and rubbish
- Rental was new build and tenants first to live in home
A young cleaner has revealed the putrid state some Aussie renters leave their home in when their lease is up.
Charlotte Bosanquet, the 20-year-old founder of the small business Care Cleaning Services, shared a video of an end-of-lease clean at the weekend.
The clip showed piles of rubbish, leftover toys, clothes, a dirty toilet, clumps of hair, plates filled with mouldy food, toothbrushes and drawings all over the walls.
‘This is the reality of how some people leave their homes when renting… we will be focusing on clearing absolutely everything out of the property,’ Ms Bosanquet said.
Ms Bosanquet said her first step in these scenarios was to remove all the rubbish from the home – which would take the entire weekend.
‘We decided to start upstairs and go room by room, so pretty much we just threw everything into a bag and took it down the stairs to the skip,’ she said.
Ms Bosanquet made a shocking discovery of ‘unexpected goodies’ while cleaning the kitchen and the pantry – a pair of false teeth.
The young cleaner said was a brand new build and the tenants were the first to live in the rental.
Many social media users shocked at the state of the home.
‘No way this is normal circumstances, who would leave so much stuff behind? all those toys and clothes,’ one person wrote.
‘I cant believe people can leave it like this, my house gets dirty and I get stressed,’ another commented.
‘What!!! I left my house spotless except I forgot to wipe down one ceiling fan and because of that I didn’t get all of my bond back,’ a third chimed.
A fourth person added: ‘Great work team. but wow!!! how do people live like that.’
Ms Bosanquet revealed her business in February made $3,745 in one week – earning $630 in one day during a 10am to 3pm shift.
She explained the cleaning shift was conducted by her and eight of her staff.
