This weekend’s episode of the cable TV show “Hoarders” features the transformation of a badly neglected home in Lisbon.

The video clip from episode shows a small white cape with an unremarkable exterior, but the interior is crammed with boxes, blankets, books, mold and worse. Family members and professional cleaners can be heard explaining that “everything is covered in pee and poop.” The home’s occupant is blamed by relatives for “destroying the family home.” The episode will air Sunday at 8 p.m. on the A&E cable network.

ServiceMaster in Auburn will be featured on the episode, as workers try to clean up the extreme filth and clutter in the home. Company co-owner Carl Carlson said his workers were provided special training for the job because “there are emotional and psychological issues you need to be aware of.” He said the job required filling at least seven dumpsters.
