STOMACH-churning pictures reveal inside of filthy flat stacked up with 400 bags of poo and 270 urine bottles.
Husband and wife clean-up team Leanne and Kenny Elliott have shared a series of shocking pictures showcasing their most disgusting encounters.
Their staff spent five hours getting rid of the stocked-up bodily fluids from one of the properties – which included excrement in the bath.
The couple have also tackled rooms with every available inch covered in filth and dealt with one ‘tiny’ flat that generated four tonnes of rubbish.
Other pictures show a garden area piled high with bin bags, a heavily-soiled mattress and a repulsive-looking toilet.
They were also called to do a clean at one home where they found more than 30,000 used needles.
THOUSANDS OF NEEDLES
Leanne, 48, from Callington, Cornwall, said the couple’s sense of humour gets them through some of the toughest situations.
She added: “Kenny’s son Ryan, who works with us, picked the smallest straw and spent five hours discarding urine and poo.
“How do you cope with something like that? You make sure you don’t pick the short straw.
Kenny’s son Ryan, who works with us, picked the smallest straw and spent five hours discarding urine and poo.
“And you wear a good mask, white suits, gloves and make sure your water bottle is unique so you don’t mix things up!
“Sifting through items is the most difficult because whilst you believe that most people live in a safe environment, in our job we have to be aware of drug paraphernalia, which is sometimes not thought about when we are booked to carry out the work.
“A needle sweep takes time to protect not only our operatives, but those in the refuse and recycling centre and at other times we come across the most unusual items.
FOUR TONNES OF RUBBISH
“Like four-tonnes of rubbish out of one tiny flat or hundreds of bottles of urine and hundreds of bags of human faeces out of another property.
“Obviously these are bodily fluids and need to be disposed of properly. In this case, the toilet was salvageable and we were able to empty the contents this way.”
The couple run two firms, Certitude Cleaning Services Ltd and Traumatic Clean Up, which involves crime-scene cleaning.
Six months after starting up the couple were called to a property in Plymouth, Devon, to perform a needle sweep.
[We found] Four-tonnes of rubbish out of one tiny flat or hundreds of bottles of urine and hundreds of bags of human faeces out of another property.
Kenny, 51, said: “The flat was empty, all the furniture was there and the tenants had gone.
“She said there was about 50 dirty needles and one sharps box, and a tin of human waste in a paint tin, not a problem.
“We went in there got the skips, got all the rubbish, started ripping it out. We found a box of sharps, then we found another box and then another.”
Kenny said that they found 360 sharps boxes that drug users are given from the chemist, and around eight or nine hospital sized boxes.
In total there were 33,500 used needles in the property.
Leanne added: “We called the police in the end, because we found a substance in there.

“The police said it was one of the largest amounts of needles they had seen in a property and we’d only been doing the job for six months.
“It’s things like where they hide the needles, sometimes people think of the whole thing, but it’s just the needle.
“When you say needle in a haystack, that’s exactly what you’re talking about.”
