Kate Croukamp, ​​a professional cleaner for 15 years, says she “would rather clean a dirty toilet than a dishwasher any day.”

And the nasty discovery she made after removing the filter from a recent customer’s dishwasher could prove exactly why she dreads cleaning them.

“You can usually smell it as soon as you open the dishwasher. As soon as you decipher it, you receive an indication if there is something interesting waiting for you,” Croukamp said.

“But you never know until you take (the filter) out and turn it inside out what’s in store for you.”

This was the case with a recent dishwasher which appeared to have – prepare yourselves – oysters and mushrooms “growing” in the filter.

Croukamp has built a cult following on social media for showing exactly how she removes dirt from dirty homes on the Gold Coast with her husband, Jack, and fellow businessmen Rates.

“People love looking at shocking and dirty things when it comes to cleaning,” she told news.com.au.

And she knew this filter would be an instant hit with her more than 81,000 TikTok followers, considering it was one of the worst she’d encountered during her career as a professional housekeeper.

“That filter is up there. Visually it was a lot, also add the smell and it was pretty bad,” she said.

Cleaning required “double gloving” and a combination of scrubbing brushes, scouring pads and degreasers to “get into the nooks and crannies” of the machine.

And when she was done, the filter looked brand new.

It looked so clean you’d think Croukamp had bought a replacement and saved himself the effort.

The condition of the filter stunned his supporters, who could not believe that “someone let this happen.”

But Croukamp told news.com.au most people wouldn’t know there was a filter to clean.

“It’s easy to judge how someone lives online, but many people have never learned how to clean,” she said.

“If you were taught how to clean, that’s a huge privilege, and a lot of people have never done it.

“Not everyone is lazy, it can be due to many factors: it could be mental health, disability, being old or just not knowing how to do it.”

She explained that this was part of the reason she started posting content on social media under the brand “Clean Like A Pro”, because people are just as interested in seeing how others live and learning to clean their house better.

Mates Rates specializes in end of lease bond cleaning — including carpet and pest control — which means the Croukamps and their team have seen homes from all kinds of suburbs in all kinds of states.

“We walked into multi-million dollar homes where the $5,000 bath was being used as kitty litter,” Croukamp recalls.

“We’ve seen it all, at both ends of the scale. We went into some untouched places, or you might go into a totally neglected place. It’s the difference between a job that takes half a day or several days.

For this reason, Mates Rates determines the price of a bonded cleaning based on the condition of the property, whether it requires a lighter cleaning or a deep cleaning – pests and carpets included.

According to Croukamp, ​​a “standard house” with four bedrooms and a single story could cost between $500 and around $2,000 “depending on what you go into.”

But some tenants have shared their horror after realizing how much work bond cleaning involves, or claim they were “ripped off” by cleaners.

The filter shocked Croukamp’s TikTok followers, who couldn’t believe “someone let it happen like that.”

Croukamp said there was a “huge variation” in the standards of cleaners, particularly after the industry boomed during the pandemic, but said it was better to find a good one for bond cleaning instead than getting bogged down in the task.

“For just one person to do it (a bond clean), it can take up to a week,” she said.

“Moving is one of the three most stressful life events – along with divorce and death in the family – and people struggle for all reasons. »

Yet, many people attempt this mammoth task, either to avoid additional expense during an already expensive time; or to avoid the “embarrassment” of having to call for professional help.

“The thing is, I love doing cleaning transformations and helping people who are moving and taking away as much stress as possible,” Croukamp said.

“So many people are embarrassed to call someone, but that’s our job, that’s what we’re here for.”

And although she dreads cleaning the filters, she admits, “I get really excited when I see a dishwasher like that (in the video).” »

“I’d rather do that than have spotless houses every day.”
