I offer Los Angeles County's cities a $250 feces cleanup service charge and it comes with up to one hour of labor. After one hour my hourly rates kick in. Most often I try to get the job done in less than an hour; this is not the type of work that one prolongs. Also, should I complet the feces cleanup task in minutes, my service charge remains $250. I do not give discounts because the task took a shorter period of time.
My hourly rate depands on certain conditions, and what I write here may not reflect what I decide to charge at a later date; the free market and my current intentions help determine my cleaing prices. Below I list what I clean and what my prices look like at this moment:
General Feces Cleanup: one time occurrences, repeated occurrences, illness, loss of control, mental illness, homless, squatters, dogs, cats, rats, mice, birds, wild nature
- indoors and outdoors
- toilet cleanout
- bathtub cleanup
- 5 gallon pail cleanout and/or complete disposal
1. Most indoor, Los Angeles poop cleanup tasks occur after someone has experienced in accidental bowel movement following an illness or during an illness. Some people have an illness from an ongoing medical condition and they will need more than one occurrence removed from the premises.
On occasion a house will be vacated by a family member who has passed away and has no relatives; the house then goes in the probate for up to a year. During this time Los Angeles probate courts determine what to do with the property. On some occasions when somebody passes away their relatives that it outside of Los Angeles or even outside of California.
They call for my cleaning service because there newly acquired house was invaded by the homeless or squatters. Because the water and electricity was turned off in the house, they still make use of the toilet even though the toilets may not flush. Before long the toilet feels and these invaders begin the using 5 gallon pails.
At time a real estate agent or property manager will call for feces cleanup for the same reasons given as in the above paragraphs. Most often I expect cash, but I will accept checked in some circumstances.
At other times an occupant may suffer from mental illness condition and no longer recognizes the advantage in flushing the toilet in a timely manner. Before long the toilet will no longer drain into the sanitary sewer. Once clogged, the responsible person continues using the toilet until it feels. At times a neighbor, a relative, or a social worker will intervene and call for my assistance. Sometimes a call comes much too late in the responsible party has fill buckets in the house and possibly even moved outdoors there toilet behavior. This sometimes happens in extreme hoarding situations.
Not only residential buildings become sites for feces cleanup. I have cleaned up after bird droppings in industrial sites. Here, the birds nest when industrial buildings are abandoned and windows are either left open or broken. The birds begin moving in, especially pigeons. Given time, Al's will soon move in to feed on the pigeons. So a lot of bird poop, feces, "guano," begins to build up. I've moved about 17,000 pounds 014 story industrial building Fresno County, California.
Outdoor feces cleanup
I received calls from property management companies as well as small businesses in need of feces cleanup from their sidewalks or near their entrance doors. San Diego County businesses probably call for my service more than any other county in Southern California. It may be that the hepatitis An epidemic now spreading to San Diego County has some part in increase calls from San Diego County businesses. I cannot say if the other counties in Southern California have greater services for the homeless to use further toilet needs.
Normally an outdoor cleanup will not carry all that much risk in Los Angeles. But this changes with homeless encampments. Occasionally a business will call me for feces cleanup because the homeless have created a homeless encampment on their property. Most often I'm unable to do a "homeless camp cleanout" because local police departments have advised us legal liabilities. It turns out, and we cannot always remove property belonging to the homeless from private property grounds. To do so places the business in jeopardy of having to replace the removed property. I don't know if this situation is in the courts, on its way to the courts, or resolved. I just know that homeless encampments cannot be cleared without some legal jeopardy.
However, even though a homeless encampment cannot be removed, the feces can be removed. A homeless encampment feces cleanup task carries a number of risks with it that otherwise do not exist in other feces cleanup task. For one, I must deal with the homeless, and many times they are either abusing drugs and alcohol are suffering some sort of mental health illness.
It toilet cleanout arises because the toilet pipe clogs from disposal of diapers, gross amounts of toilet paper, newspaper, and other objects. The toilet may also fail to flush because the responsible party simply failed to flush the toilet and when it became too heavily soiled by feces, it would not flush. One other condition arises in a toilet will not flush, and that is when the structure sanitary sewer is clogged somewhere between the main sewer line in the structure's sewer lines. Tree roots will do this as well as objects placed in the structure sewer line as above.
Most often a toilet cleanout cost $350. To clean out additional toilets in the same structure may result in a price reduction for the additional toilets.However, all bets are off when a toilet drainpipe becomes totally clogged. In this case, the feces must be removed from the premises either by myself for the responsible party. If I must remove the feces, I must properly store it and treated for movement on public streets. I must also dispose of it in a public landfill, none of which is cheap. It's also time-consuming and labor-intensive. It's hard to give a price without seeing what's going on. See my comments about conditions below.
What My Prices Look Like - At times I may ask the responsible party how much they're willing to pay when there is a large feces cleanup job they know will take more than one hour. You can expect to pay hundreds of dollars in any case.
- $250 general feces cleanup with up to one hour labor including
- $10-$900 and up for bathtub feces cleanup work cleanout
- $25-$75 for 5 gallon pail feces removal (price depends on whether or not toilet) - - pail contents must be treated improperly disposed of in a landfill
- $100-$200 for feces soiled carpet removal (Negotiable depending upon other services required
- Hourly rates are hard to determine without seeing the site, and usually run between $40-$60 per hour
- Large feces cleanup task will often require a flat fee and flat fees may run between 500 and $900 (negotiable depending on work and conditions)
Conditions - - Conditions give value to the work I'm to complete as well as my time, expenses, and risks. For example, feces cleanup in a confined area will cost more in feces cleanup in a wide open space. It's the risk of going into a confined space that makes work harder and possibly dangerous.
- Is there parking and if there is parking, how far from the worksite? This goes to the time required to reach the work scene itself with my tools, equipment, and cleaning solutions, and to the physical security of my vehicle and my personal safety.
- Is there a working toilet that will flush?
- Is there running water?
- Is there electricity?
- Is there a pet in the house?
- Is there anyone in the house during work?
- Is there a backyard?
- Is work to take place on a second or third floor?
- Is there clear access to the feces cleanup area?
- Is there a preferred time to start work? (return)
- Time of day for cleaning and distance to the work site have some influence over my prices; see my comments about cities and driving time.

Palmdale As a number of palm trees, but only the Washington palm is a true native. A gateway city to the antelope Valley, 47 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, you can see how I'm I charge more for doing feces cleanup job in this fine city. As of this moment, I do not have an increased service charge because of the driving distance. However, this could change the way traffic congestion is going.
Palos Verdes Estates City incorporated some 27 miles south west of downtown Los Angeles on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. It overlooks the ocean from Malagago. And it translates to "green trees," and "green sticks." It's derived from the defined deals Palos Verdes, a peaceful canyon of willows and grass near today's Harbor Lake.
