Episode 9: Maggot Racing

do you ever wonder what happens when the
police leave crime scene cleaners are private companies that handle to clean
up after the police are gone Spaulding decon is one of the nation’s largest
cleanup companies handling the aftermath of homicides suicides decompositions
Auden and much more these are stories we are at the scene of
a decomp today as Friday and this person passed away well was discovered on
Tuesday we don’t know when he passed away based on the amount of medication I
think he was probably pretty sick he lived alone the scene is rather small
it’s it’s pretty contained so we got a little bit of clothing we got carpet we
do have quite a bit of maggots the smell one of scale from 1 to 10 is probably
about a seven seven and a half so it’s really not too bad so we are going to
get started working in this room here it is a bit cluttered there’s a lot of big
items but we’ll take care of the odor and get rid of all of the nastiness we
are going to be working in a pretty shitty environment it’s hot already and
the AC appears to be broken so I’ve got it on 67 and it’s reading 86 degrees in
here I open this up and it looks like this air conditioning system is
duct-taped together and I think I can’t even see the year on this thing
but it’s like ancient ancient old so it’s gonna really be a crappy
environment for us to work in it’s pretty dirty too so oh well another day
another dollar hey guys we are here in Tampa on the
31st of July we are doing a animal Beagle matter clean out if you follow me
so the guy was known as a drug user a known drug user he has stolen out of
another apartment a stove and a refrigerator we’re actually taking this
refrigerator with us today you can see it is leaking down here really gross so
we are all animal lovers here the animal has been taken away he had his dog locked in the bathroom
this is what we’re here to clean today these are the situations in our heart
for me not too bad we’re gonna remove flooring we’re removing base sports
we’re gonna sanitized seal the floor we’re gonna call it a dad welcome to
life asphalt line well it’s not as bad as decomp
but it’ll be fun it’ll be easy hold on is so bad yeah they tease bro so it’s so
so bad so hot Oh actually it’s fast like August 11th look at that this is
perfectly fine today oh my god maggots look it over so you know let me tell you
something maggots are my best employees they never Chloe sick they never
complain right you see they don’t cuss me out they just do their jobs
look at that that floor is gonna come out so we’re removing the refrigerator it is
full of food I don’t want anything falling out of my fucking trailer it
will have to be empty or I will call her a scrap after the fact when we get back it’s fucking gross I didn’t open em but
the maybe supervisor Sonia’s fuckin girl so I have nice together do you want me
to open it all right that’s a fucking challenge challenging there we go
challenge accepted get all up in it you want to see the refrigerator smell
anything hey we had a three-way maggot race and
Kyle’s maggot one that’s kind of fast or fast what’s wrong forest ruin what you
know what let’s set up a maggot race oh I want that one okay on the count of
three one two mine’s winning already here’s
this retargeting that’s mine yes bottom aside this yeah this is what
yeah mines waiting Oh yours went off track one what are you doing whoa oh
he’s going back at you whoa he smells the clouds no yeah my maggot did not win
my maggot was in second place though it’s just because Kyle was part of a
three-way well we were cleaning it up I mean maggots were running and we thought
what a better way to get them some exercise since they’ve done such a great
job for us in the cleanup of course we did and Wan’s maggot was semi disabled
because he ran in the wrong direction okay and upside down and upside down so
but in my defense my maggot was the fattest so that’s why I came in second
mine had the flattest ass or I mean hey yeah it was able to run with nothing she just called me sad and she called
before all right we hate you we’re leaving oh my god take that sweater off it’s
summer you know I need to shave or anything though I’ll wax it for you
though I’ve always wanted to get waxed Oh do it let me pull it oh my god see so
you could see I’m somewhat dry he is soaking wet
I’m dying even has butt sweat crunch no I have ball sweat my ball sweat has
balls laughs well my flat by high school you got six right it’s probably wait
should we get a 95 degrees outside yeah 86 inside yeah so it’s really hot we’re
taking a break we’re having to remove the subfloor because it went through
which we weren’t really surprised because
filled up the padding so one lost the maggot race so he’s got
such a subway yeah everything about that you can hear in the background actually
taking a break in the 95-degree heat argument yeah this was an elderly man
that just honestly passed away from got out of college
yeah there was nothing cranky about this at all there was a little bit of blood yeah deerfield stunk worse yeah well I
thought I was like episode worse than that that’s all economically
so we are just trying to have a little bit of light humor here because if you
don’t it can be really bad the day’s the day’s can really get to you if you don’t
like take them lightly you know right yeah yeah you start dwelling on yeah
exactly so we have to kind of have light humor about it it’s it’s the circle of
life I mean it’s really when it’s your time to go we’re not
sensitive or just you know making a lot of Pacific if we didn’t show I have my fogger
with disinfectant in it I actually labeled a on top shockwave so that way
nobody gets it confused I try to keep one for the stuff that I have for mold
and then I try to keep one that has shockwave in it once a mold killer the
other one is a disinfectant I’m just gonna go in everything before I start
talking everything cleaned up the mess on the floor from the refrigerator so
what we did here we literally stripped the bathroom down had to remove the
toilet to get the sticky laminate flooring up I stopped at the threshold
everything in here has been sanitized wipe down on inside cabinets I could
lick them if I wanted to I’m just not in the mood inside the drawers here we’re
good to go there the tub build it by hand tub looks phenomenal I would
actually take a bath in it I would sit on the toilet seat I probably would lick
it since I’m the one that cleaned it move for that either that’s essentially
it today so what I’m going to do now I’m gonna follow my disinfectant gonna fuck
with my disinfectant I’m gonna go ahead get all the walls I’m going to do a
heavy fog in the air so that way it’s inside crevices and things like that
again this was a known drug user drug of choice was heroin I have a box of
needles that I actually have to pick up it’s already been sealed so I’m not
gonna open it you guys unfortunately aren’t going to be able to see it that’s
it okay here we are Bradenton Florida at
the bio asset that we did older gentleman died of natural causes you can
see here we actually removed all of the carpet I’m getting ready to set mine up
goes down machine to get rid of the smell so if there was two layers on the
floor here one one particle board the other ones plywood it actually feels
like when you’re walking but you’re gonna fall through the flooring it’s
just everything is on swol because of moisture and things like that it’s my
hometown it was kind of nice to be home but it was kind of a fairly easy cleanup
had to rip up all the carpet at 196 Caleb I go Ben maggots galore had a
maggot race which is really cool this at my autozone machine we’re gonna dip out
of here so hope you guys enjoyed this episode with Laura
