According to the South China Morning Post, the discovery was made after a concerned neighbor informed the landlord that the house had a foul smell.

Interestingly, the tenant continued sitting in the house looking through the phone when a cleaning lady was sent over to clear the mess.

The landlord revealed that the reason he had not bothered to check the apartment was that the tenant always paid her rent on time.

Details indicate that it took the cleaning lady five painstaking hours to bring the house back to normal.

After taking care of the situation, the landlord gave the tenant a few days to find a new place and move out of his house.

Tenant depressed?

Social media users who saw videos of the house were left in shock, with many sharing the opinion that the woman needs psychological help.

"I'm too lazy but not to that extent. I clean when I see my trashes as an eyesore. Woman in the video needs help."

Kinou Neko:

"She might suffer depression or mental health issues. After a time the problem becomes so big that she might not even know where to start and it surely makes her even more depressed. Which explains she is hiding on her phone to try escape this terrible situation."

Rock Ping:

"Its a serious hoarding disorder. Difficulty throwing away or parting with possessions because you believe that you need to save them."

Sandi Roy:

"This is a mental health issue not laziness. Perhaps a secure facility where someone else cleans her room and she is only allowed a certain amount of personal items."
