Unit 129 - OMG Factor

Unit 129 was vacated by the tenant, but instead of taking all her stuff, she left it all.

Cleaning it out.

Just trying to get into this home was a task in itself. Before we entered this unit, the manager said that the tenant had 3 cats, 2 dogs and 21 chickens. OMG I don't understand how anyone can live like this.

This unit was so disgusting, that we had to wear Hazmat clothes.

It took us 5 hours to clean out this unit. It stunk! There was dog and cat shit all over the place, piles and piles of trash, needles and junk.

We worked and worked on this unit. I did not think we was ever going to be done.


We finally got it all cleaned out.

The Maintenance man went in and told the Park that it needs a new roof. They called a company to come out and put a brand new roof on this unit. After the new roof was done the Maintenance man went into the unit and started the repairs, he first pulled out the toilet and sink. He then started fixing the ceiling.

The Maintenance man, took a sawzall and cut the ceiling, I am not sure why he did it. He cut electric wires and cut two of the rafters out. Right after that he said he got bed bugs from the unit and would not go back into it.

Now he never told the Manager that he cut out the rafters. So no one knew of this new problem he created.

A month goes by and the Maintenance man quits his position.

When I started the job, the manager asked me to go into the unit and start repairs. When I walked in, I noticed the ceiling was almost touching my head. I thought that was strange. I went home and got my car jack and a couple of 2x4's. I jacked up the ceiling. I saw water pouring off the roof. The ceiling started leaking. I called recorded a message and sent it to my manager.

My boss text me back and said the company that put the roof on is on their way. I replied ok. The tech for the company got up on the roof, he said holy shit. He said you are a very lucky man, he said I could have died in that unit. He said the roof had over an indentation that was 6'x12' and the water that was up there was at least 8" deep. He said if it would have broken and I would have been under it, I would have died.

The tech got up on the roof with a broom and swept the water off.

I climbed up after he was done sweeping the water off. I was amazed at the sight.

The manager took pictures and sent them to the owner to get a contractor in to repair all the damage. Since there is structural damage, they need someone with more expertise on this matter.

So now Unit 129 is sitting empty waiting for repair.
