Cleaning a severely neglected house with (non-neglected) resident cats

There is a house with five cats that has not had a litter box emptied in several months. This, of course, has led to the cats using the floors in multiple rooms as a litter box over the course of months. There are four medium sized rooms the cats have had access to, but no furniture/other objects to be cleaned. Eventually, the floors will have to be replaced, but in the interim:
My question is: What sort of cleaning service would be willing to take this on? It's an unpleasant job, and in addition to taking out the cat waste, the floors, walls, and windows will need to be scrubbed. Is this something that a normal cleaning service might be willing to take on for additional pay, or a situation where a 'disaster cleanup' service is necessary? How on earth do I present this?
(Note for the cat curious - all of the cats needs: food, attention, vet visits, etc were taken care of during this time. All of the cats are healthy, disease free, and well adjusted. There is a plan in place to ensure the house does not reach this level of neglect again, and the owner has agreed and made arrangements)
