[Graphic Images] Inside the Horrific Death Houses That Forensic Cleaners Go into Every Day

A tragic death leaves more than just grieving relatives and mourning friends behind. It also makes one hell of a mess. Although it’s a subject almost too distressing and morbid to think about, the process of death is not a sanitary one. For some people their whole job revolves around the unpleasant business of disposing of mortal remains, whether the cause of death is natural, criminal, or self-inflicted.

That ignominious occupation belongs to Josh Marsden, an Australian forensic cleaner tasked with sponging, scouring and scrubbing the mess made by violent deaths and decomposition. Recently, Marsden shared a few disturbing images of the scenes he’s found on his rounds, and they’re guaranteed to turn your stomach.

Although no human remains feature in the following images, some viewers may find them upsetting.

14. More blood spatter from the same homicide

Marsden employs a high-pressure extraction machine to remove contaminants, and a special lacquer agent which, when applied to an contaminated surface, will react chemically with organic matter such as blood. Commenting on his grisly occupation, Marsden stated: “Homicides are usually straightforward. The police get out there quickly before the body can rot away, so it’s just the blood to clean up. And stabbings will do more damage than a gunshot wound.”

He added: “A lot of them are suicides and nobody knows they’ve committed suicide. We’re seeing more and more suicides. In a lot of properties we find a lot of alcohol bottles and huge amounts of prescription medication. Huge amounts. And they’re usually related to depression or cancer.” If you or anyone you know is struggling with depression or suicidal feelings, then please contact the Samaritans on 116 123
