    Tim answered the phone on the first call. He was super nice and very accommodating. Then he sent the most amazing crew along with Marc. Marc was so compassionate and so helpful. They went above and beyond to turn the house back into livable condition. They managed to turn a 3 day job into 2 days. Marc kept in touch the whole time, they were very respectful of the items in the house and were even able to save things we thought were beyond saving. If you have a mess, call them now, you need them. Thank you BioOne!!!

    If I could give them 100 stars, I would. Tim and his team came into my place to help with some severe clutter and my desperate need for organizing what I own. - by Tara D., 2021-05-11 12:05:52

    They were all so understanding, professional, and kind in what can often be an embarrassing situation. I never felt pushed to get rid of things I didn't want to part with, and they really helped me clear out the chaos I was living in. I cannot thank them enough and am so incredibly grateful. I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to begin, and I could NOT have done it without them. They went above and beyond, all without changing my fee. I could go on, just cannot say enough about how they helped me - physically and mentally - get back to a more peaceful life that I'd let get out of control. Tim, Frannie, Hannah, Mark, and James - THANK YOU!! While I hope to never see you guys again (ha!) I will never forget you and what you did for me.

    Quality Service and Recommendation - by Josh Stamm, 2020-10-13 09:10:13

    4.35 / 5 stars

    I recently hired Bio-One to do a single room cleanup. Tim was very courteous and professional in all my discussions with him and the young woman he sent on-site to do the work was equally courteous and professional. She did an outstanding job, surpassing my expectations given the nature of the clean-up. I highly recommend giving Bio-One's team here in Columbus a chance if you need this kind of help.

    Best service you could ask for - by Suzanne, 2020-06-23 20:06:00

    I moved into my hoarder, deceased mothers house thinking I could clean it up. Instead, found myself deep in the same type of depression she was in. Instead of cleaning, I contributed to the mess. I contacted Bio-One and I am so thankful, greatful and blessed to have met this group. They are so understanding, caring bunch I would recommend them to anyone that needs help, and embarrassed or overwhelmed to ask for help. I am on awe of them.. thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤
