An interview excerpt with Geron Smith, Director of Business Development
Interviewer: What are some of the most memorable things you have seen at ACT?
Geron: Well some of the most memorable things would have to be pet odor and damage. I did not know just how destructive an animal can be to a home until I started this role at ACT. We have seen just outrageous things with pet odor, cats or dogs, and I think that’s probably one of the grossest things I’ve actually had to deal with. So yeah, I would have to say it’s just the damage from pets.
Unfortunately we see these sometimes, of course, in a personal residence. But a lot of times we see it in rental properties and multifamily dwellings where there’s a landlord and a tenant, and maybe the tenant just didn’t have pride of ownership and just kind of let it go, and after the fact, they move out. We are called in a lot of times to come clean it up and it is amazing. Yeah, we’ve seen a lot of really bad situations.
