EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. -- The pictures of Paul and Jenny Fisch's home will make your stomach churn. Their home was destroyed by would-be buyers who allegedly smeared feces all over the walls, floor and even on the ceiling. 

Almost immediately after Contact7 reported the couple's story, viewers wanted to know how they could help. A Denver company, Lifestyle Moving and Cleaning Services, offered to help clean the home. Two realtors have reached out to offer their assistance with selling the house after it's cleaned up.

Due to the extensive damage and waste, the home will also have to undergo a biohazard clean which is very costly. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the hazmat cleanup and other expenses. According to estimates for cleaning and repairs, it will cost approximately $40,000 to return the home to its original state.

Contact7 also attempted to follow up with the couple's real estate agent, the buyer's agent and their insurance company to get reaction to the story. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office was also contacted again by Contact7 and asked to watch the video. After viewing the video, a spokesperson said the issue remains a civil matter and they will not be conducting a criminal investigation.
