A horrified landlord had to call in specialist help to clear out a filthy property that had been left with so much mess by tenants that the floor couldn’t even be seen.
Rubbish, litter and waste coated the floor of the home in Swansea – and a family of rats had moved in to set up house among the junk.
And the offensive mess wasn’t the only think to cause a stink for the landlord.
His tenants are said to have done a runner while still owing rent, leaving the owner out of pocket both for rent and for the cleaning costs of the disaster zone left behind.
WalesOnline revealed that deep clean specialist Dan Baker was called in by the despairing landlord after he unlocked the door of his property to find an unimaginable level of mess.
Footage shared from the scene shows empty drink bottles strewn across a floor alongside empty food packaging and other rubbish.
A cream sofa is seen in desperate need of a clean as the devastating mess makes the living room floor impossible to see.
Trash is strewn throughout the property which appears to have been used as one giant rubbish bin by the former tenants.
A filthy bathroom is seen with mess and empty toilet rolls scattered all over the floor.
While a filthy kitchen and bedroom are also uncovered in the horror video.
Mr Baker, who runs waste management service Dan The Man With A Van and was tasked with getting the property back in to shape.
He told WalesOnline: “The landlord asked me to tidy up the place, after the tenants did a runner.
“He said he wasn’t going to go in there himself."
He continued: "There were even some little rats there but I've sorted them out too.”
However the cleaning expert said the home was not the worst he had ever seen, adding: “But I have come across worse properties to clean. Students are the worst."
