Confessions Of A Crime Scene Cleaner


By Jennifer Welsh

Reddit user Lotsofshi has a dirty job. He recently did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on the site about his work as a "Biohazard Remediation Technician aka CTS Decon Specialist (Crime and Trauma Scene Decontamination)."In his job, he specializes in cleaning up and decontaminating crime scenes from homicides, suicides, decomposing bodies (aka "unattended deaths"), industrial accidents, hoarders, tear gas, and other trauma, he wrote.

He applied to the job on a whim after growing to hate his desk job. He says there aren't really any certifications to do the job, other than being able to follow OSHA requirements.
