During our cleanup jobs, we sometimes come across cool and weird things. Here are some of our favourite and weird stories from different cleaning jobs.
One of the strangest things we have ever found while cleaning a large office building was a used pregnancy test in the woman’s washroom. The test was negative. But we always wondered who it was from and we wondered if they were hoping it would have read positive.
We have also found some funny notes that employees have passed on to each other during a meeting. One, in particular, read “Please just kill me now”. I think it was safe to assume it was a dull meeting.
During Halloween a specific office we clean dresses up a CPR dummy into a scary zombie named Karl. They put “Karl” in an empty office sitting at the desk. You can see straight into the office as the entire wall was glass. For weeks when my staff entered the office to clean, it scared them. They knew it was coming, but it still made them jump daily!
Sometimes we find a lot of beer cans in personal garbage under people’s desks. They must’ve had a tough day at work.
We cleaned a bathroom and found a whole outfit thrown away. We are talking about shoes, underwear, shirt, pants. This has happened multiple times in this building. No idea why but maybe they weren’t happy with their outfit choice for the day.
Dog poop. Yup, we have even found some dog poop in our offices. We even cleaned it up for our client.
We have a couple of buildings that have a shop attached to the back and they have a cat that lives there. Its to take care of the mice in the shop, but the cats are so SO FRIENDLY!! We just love having pets around.
We also once walked in on a client in his office doing yoga. He was mid yoga pose when we burst into his office to clean. Whoops! We didn’t know he was there!
We look forward to sharing more funny and weird stories so keep an eye out on our blog for new updates.
