I bought a house years ago from a family of hardcore chain smokers. The house smelled so bad that it was nauseating just to walk into it. I hired a crime scene cleanup company to do a deep clean and the results that they got were amazing! My walls lightened 4 shades just from removing the nicotine. That and a coat of Kilz before I painted resulted in a completely different house.@ColoKate63 wrote:
I haven’t had THE Discussion about replacing padding post-crime, but I have done a E**S shop where a crime scene cleanup van with prominent lettering was parked in the “Future Residents” space, and remnants of police tape were hanging on railings nearby.
Turns out that a female resident had been attacked and murdered in the parking garage just hours before. AFAIK, the crime was never solved.
The Leasing Agent was rattled, but she did a good job overall. I was surprised to see that the Leasing Office was up and running tours after something like that. Capitalism marches on, I guess.
