This was actually the "better" of the 2 pieces I tipped. The first one was a surprise and A LOT more terds flying everywhere. No time for pics, lol.

Reaching blindly into some couches doesn't always work out that well. I have heard of a cleaning tech reaching in and pulling his hand out with a needle and #$%&(*# ^#^$ attached to it. Yuch!!!!!!!!!!

cleaned my bankers house, carpet and furniture. Found his daughters bra under the sofa cushion. A What Would You Do moment for sure.

Found lots of bras and panties under the cushions over the years. Mens underwear and socks too. Mainly socks. Just put them aside and keep cleaning. Found lots worse things too but that's for another thread sometime

We had that happen to one our crew once. Thankfully the homeowner was a diabetic, though our guy was really freaked out that he could have AIDS. He tested once a month for the next year just to be on the safe side.

I like the kneel or foot to the edge and using the crevice tool.. This is more reason not to run my hand in the cracks.. :dejection:

Years ago found a wind chime in a sofa…..mOuse turned skeleton.

On another job years ago found porn mags…..old lady warned me not to move the sofa. I insisted…’All part of the cleaning maam’ I said to her. Afterwards I look at her and she looks at me with a grin. From that day forward I remember them mags and the old lady’s smile every time I clean sofas. I no longer move furniture around. I mind my own business.

On another job found a loaded firearm in a sofa. Called the homeowner to come over from the other room…he comes, I pointed to it….he says ‘oh is that where it was, I forgot all about that one’
My mind went blank for a few moments.
