An extreme cleaner has been nicknamed the Prince of Poo after tackling a three-foot ‘excrement mountain’.
Steve Carr, 50, is arguably Britain’s most extreme cleaner and is given some of the worst jobs because he has no sense of smell.
A near death car crash left him unable to smell anything and – lucky for him – his miracle survival meant he’s the only one who can take on the UK’s stinkiest cleaning jobs.
Brave Steve recently removed the mountain of poo from the toilet seat of a flat in Barnet, North London.
The tenant had spent months piling the poo on top of the toilet in the one-bed apartment.
Neighbours eventually complained when the stench became unbearable – which is when Steve and CleanSafe Services stepped in.
‘I thought I’d seen the lot, but I’d never seen anything like this,’ Steve said.
‘It was pretty much as extreme as it gets, it was like an excrement mountain.
‘The only thing I couldn’t say is how bad it smelled.’
His colleague Yankie Blair, 37, who also helped clean the flat said: ‘I’ve done this job for 12 years, but when I saw the bathroom I wanted to vomit.
‘Steve just laughed and said “come on, let’s get stuck in”.
‘He’s never been put off by anything, it’s why we call him the Prince of Poo.’
Steve of Deptford, south London, says he has tackled everything from industrial freezers full of rotting meat to a flat in which a man had recently died.
‘A gentleman had suffered a sudden hemorrhage and had run from room to room trying to get help,’ he explained.
‘There was blood all over the floor and walls. His body was found in the hallway, by the front door.
‘When they removed it, his scalp attached to the skirting board, which we had to clean.’
He wears a full protective body suit and mask to keep deadly bacteria and viruses at bay – but he isn’t bothered about the mess.
‘Behind many jobs there are cases of human suffering, and we will always remember that,’ he said.
