Imagine getting your supplies out ready to pull up your carpet, only to discover the outline of a dead body on the floor.
That's what actually happened to one woman. Well, either that or someone was really having a laugh at her expense...
And what she filmed next had viewers shook. Check out a clip below:
She captioned the video: "I wasn't bothered knowing someone had died in my new house, but imagine my surprise when I ripped up the floor and found this".
The camera then panned to show the outline of a body on the floor, with the word: Case #091101 written alongside it.
Say what now?! We would have ran straight out the door.
Next to the body outline there wooden floor was worn away and discoloured, like it had been aggressively scrubbed, or blood stained.
"Ok but this is actually a little creepy," the TikToker wrote.
And many in the comments agreed.
"DO US A FAVOUR. RESEARCH WHO DIED THERE PLEASE," one wrote.
While another penned: "So that's the moment when I would simply... move".
A third chipped in: "RIP you, aye".
To which the TikToker replied: "Check on me in a week!".
While a lot of the comments were quaking in their boots, others had more pragmatic responses to the clip.
"It's a joke lol," one wrote. "If it were real the floorboards would have been replaced, because it's a biohazard".
"Whoever installed the carpet drew that to freak out whoever removed the carpet," another theorised. "We did this to our old house before we [put] our laminate down. It's a joke".
"Ya'll are gullible," someone else said. "That's not even the proportions of a human body".
The TikToker then took things further, after one commenter told her to spray peroxide on the floor and see if it reacted.
"Pour peroxide on the stain. If it bubbles it's blood. If it is you need to get that out of your house," they advised.
She went on to do just that, explaining in a clip that she had sprayed a test area and the darkened area of wood to see if there was a comparison in outcome.
And... sure enough, the darkened wood began to bubble while the other, normal side didn't.
Peroxide does indeed bubble when it comes in contact with blood, because it contains an enzyme called catalase.
This isn't a foolproof test, however, and you'd need much more complicated tests to ensure it's definitely blood rather than other cells causing the reaction.
Blood or not, we'd be on the phone to the estate agent ASAP to get that flooring changed, girl...
