Instead of sitting behind a desk 9-5 everyday, Steve and Lorinda Penn clean up unattended death scenes, suicides, homicides, meth labs, hoarding situations and anything that regular cleaners won’t touch.

Happily married for 17 years, Steve and Lorinda express to PLGRM what it takes to be a Trauma Cleaner, walking us through the psychology of the job and explaining confronting experiences that have become a part of their daily life.
