There's nothing worse than a nightmare neighbour .
And for people living in a block of flats in Dudley, the West Midlands, things reached a whole new level.
Caretaker, Tony, had to step in when a raft of people complained about the smell coming from the tenant's flat.
This is just one of the problems encountered by the hidden army who tackle some of Britain's dirtiest problems and uncovered in Channel 5 documentary, Grime and Punishment.
Tony said: "A young lad lives there and he keeps himself to himself and lives on his own.
"But people have been complaing about the smell, which isn't good, so we had no choice but to inspect his room.
"I was devastated when I went in, the living conditions were just acceptable."
The man has NEVER cleaned his flat and the toilet is blocked, filthy and full of sewage.
A look around the flat shows the toilet is full of human waste, along with the shower, which is also blocked and full of sewage.
None of the surfaces have been wiped and a lone bar of soap lies on the floor.
Tony, barely able to stop himself gagging, says: "It's really bad, nothing has been cleaned.
"The toilet has been blocked and is full of sewage. It's rank."
Tony calls in the help of specialist cleaner, Don, who isn't phased by anything.
The expert cleaner lost his sense of smell in a diving accident, which makes him perfect for stinky jobs like this.
Although it's still a big ask to rid the flat of 120 litres of human waste and sewage.
Don sucks all of the sewage water away and then has to carry the contents up two flights of stairs to get rid of it.
The he has to scrub the rest of the human waste from the shower, sink and toilet – by hand.
It's clogged with not only sewage but also toilet roll and even vegetables.
Don says: "It isn't very nice but when you've done it as many times as I have, I can can quite happily go home and have my dinner without thinking about it.
"I sometimes think my wife would like to greet me at the door with a hosepipe though."
