The scene involved the death of a hoarder and person in question had been dead for some time. Ben Giles from Ultima Cleaning was called in to clear the place up.
In his UNILAD 'Minutes With' interview, Giles said that he's attended at least 300 or 400 cases, including people who have 'disembowelled' themselves with knives, but this one case sticks in his head more than any other.
Perhaps because the body was still present at the scene he was supposed to be cleaning.
He explained: "Probably the worst thing I've done was I had a phone call from my local police authority to go to a property where a gentleman had died and he was a hoarder.
"So, they opened the front door and it was just like a tunnel and there was a suitcase and another suitcase and everything was just boxes so I kinda crawled in and went up and got to a door and I couldn't get through the door.
"So, I came back and I said [he shrugs].
"I was kinda naïve to what was going on a little. They ended up breaking the window - by this point there was about 80 people watching from this council estate and soon as they broke the window, the smell.
"Everyone just ran into their houses."
He continued: "The fire brigade took the window out and then all the items that he'd hoarded had fallen on top of him, so we had to uncover them for the scenes of crime officer to come and take a photo of the body.
"Not very often do we go there and the body is still there, but in this situation it was.
"We uncovered everything and sadly I moved a bag and the gentleman's foot came off and I had to put that back for them to take a photograph.
"Then, when we got down to the body the scenes of crime officer could come in and take a photograph and bizarrely they had to have two doctors to come in and pronounce that the person was actually dead, even though they'd been there for eight or 10 weeks.
"They were on about four or five mattresses - the body was - and it had gone through about three of them.
"So, that was pretty horrendous, from a visual, smell, whole kind of situation."
In the interview - filmed as part of UNILAD's 'Minutes With' series - Giles revealed that he actually got into the crime scene cleaning game after agreeing to help clean a property that had been dormant for a decade whilst working as a window cleaner.
After getting done with that first disgusting job, he realised how much money there was to be made in doing the dirty work.
He got a college qualification and set off on his new career.
Asked why he does it, he explained: "Most people have got a threshold that as long as you give them enough money for it, they'll do it."
If you say so.
