After a long and trying eviction, an owner was anxious to get the property re-rented and try to get things back on track. It took about 2 weeks of cleaning, some new carpet and a new coat of pain on everything to get the home back up and ready to rent. It was under lease within a few days.
After about 2 more weeks the new tenants started complaining of an odd smell. Filters were changed, the carpets were cleaned again, and multiple people inspected, unable to find the source of the smell AND the tenants were now stating that there were maggots randomly appearing through out the entire home.
After about a month, the smell was so bad that the owner helped move the tenants into a hotel while they fumigated the home. The pest control company finally noticed a small yellowed spot on one of the walls, and investigated. Upon further “prodding”. They found the source of the smell and the maggots. The former tenant had been so upset about being evicted that they had placed raw meat behind drywall in each room and then repaired the walls so that it would go unnoticed.
