A husband and wife cleaning team who specialise in cleaning gory crime scenes were called in to tidy up what could be Britain’s filthiest house.

Leanne and Kenny also discovered a bedside cabinet drawer filled with thousands of cigarette ends and a toilet with faeces smeared all over it.

Leanne said: ‘We had to empty a flat of rubbish and bodily fluids. There were 270 50ml bottles of urine and 400 bags of faeces. There were 70 bottles of urine in the airing cupboard as well as faeces in the bath.

‘Ryan picked the smallest straw and spent five hours discarding urine and faeces. How do you cope with something like that? You make sure you don’t pick the short straw.

‘And you wear a good mask, white suits, gloves and make sure your water bottle is unique so you don’t mix things up!’     

The couple also run another business Traumatic Clean Up, which deals with things such as suicides, crime scenes and other police incidents, along with their son and family friend.

The husband-and-wife team have cleaned up everything from masses of blood to brain-matter in their crime-scene cleaning business.   

The firm pride themselves on confidentiality, so are limited on the jobs they can talk about- every job discussed has either been approved or certain details have been left out so it is untraceable. 

The couple crime-scene cleaning business has taught them how to deal with some of the most traumatic incidents.

They always have to be on their guard against unsavory items they might find at properties. 

Leanne said: ‘Sifting through items is the most difficult because whilst you believe that most people live in a safe environment, in our job we have to be aware of drug paraphernalia, which is sometimes not thought about when we are booked to carry out the work.

‘A needle sweep takes time to protect not only our operatives, but those in the refuse and recycling centre and at other times we come across the most unusual items. 

The family-business say their sense of humour gets them through some of the toughest situations – and often draw straws to see who will deal with the least desirable task. 

‘And you wear a good mask, white suits, gloves and make sure your water bottle is unique so you don’t mix things up!’
