Before and after shots of the “filthiest house in Europe” will have you reaching for your cleaning supplies this afternoon.
TikTok cleaner @aurikatariina showed the devastating impact depression can have on someone’s environment.
In a viral video, the cleaner revealed that the Swiss house had not been cleaned in five years.
When the owner, who suffered from depression, could no longer shower she resorted to cutting off her hair.
Now, after receiving help from TikTok’s “Queen of Cleaning”, the homeowner has a fresh start.

Another said: “Seeing houses like this makes me feel less alone about how mine looks.”

Aurikatariina shared the full video of the cleaning process to YouTube, where the comment section was also flooded with support.
One viewer wrote: “I suffer from depression and anxiety and sometimes having the energy to shower and cook and clean can be overwhelming. Thank you for being such a kind soul and not judging someone.”
In the full video she showed before and after clips of the bedroom, kitchen, and living room.

By cleaning people’s houses for free, she gives those going through tough times a helping hand to get back on their feet.
