I absolutely had an awesome experience working with Tim and his company. Seriously the nicest and most kind, professional people when dealing and going through an extremely difficult situation. Their kindness, compassion and knowledge really helped me through it and I highly recommend this company. They went above and beyond and I will be forever grateful!
Amy Vereb
I cannot express just how blessed I feel by having found Tim and his team. They are professional, efficient, and so compassionate. Tim handled everything with empathy and I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of financially. I'm so thankful for finding people who care about people and not just about money. I know my daughter is resting a little easier knowing that Tim and his team took care of her Mama. (This is an after photo.)
Tracy Echols
This is not a service I thought I would ever need but I’m so glad it exists. Tim was so kind and understanding and honestly such a bright spot in a really dark situation. I can’t say enough about the professionalism and efficiency with which the team works and I would recommend them to anyone with confidence. Thank you so much.

The team was efficient and compassionate! After an enexpected and undiscovered passing of a man they came in and helped find items that his mother wanted, they found money and photos and returned them to her with care and concern. They removed all furniture and carpet and thoroughly cleaned the entire apartment and did an amazing job. Thank you for the work that you do, it takes a truly special person you are just that!

We were in dire need of clean up after my sister fell ill with c diff and my elderly mother and young niece were living in the home. I contacted Bio-One of Columbus and they fit us into their schedule immediately! They were very courteous, professional and thorough and answered any questions we had. They even followed up with us to make sure all was well. I hope that we would not need to use them again for anything. However, I would definitely contact them again and have referred them to family and friends.
Cindy Horney
Having any situation where you need to call a biohazard specializing company is never fun. But Picking Bio One was definitely the correct move. Not only were they incredibly professional and efficient, they were also incredibly empathetic to the particular situation the family was going through. In particular the crew supervisor Marc. He made a massive effort to ensure all parties involved in the cleanup were all onboard with every aspect of the clean up and took the time to know everyone involved and make them feel at ease with the entire operation. I really enjoyed talking and working with him during the whole process and he definitely made everything so much easier and more personable. I wouldn't do anything in different in hindsight.

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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 ❤

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What is Hoarding?
    Hoarding is a behavioral pattern characterized by the excessive acquisition of and inability to discard large quantities of objects that cover the living areas of a home and cause significant distress or impairment. 

    Compulsive hoarding behavior has been associated with health risks, economic burdens, and adverse effects on personal relationships. When clinically significant enough to impair functioning, hoarding can prevent typical uses of space so as to limit basic daily activities like moving through the home, eating, and sleeping. It can also put people at risk due to increased risks of injury, fire, and disease.
    Why Hire Bio-One of Columbus To Cleanup Your Hoarding Residence?
    Bio-One of Columbus prioritize concern for the well being of our customers and their families, always following our slogan, “Help First, Business Second.” Bio-One of Columbus soundly reject the business-first mindset of other companies who see people and their families asking for help as vulnerable and exploit the economic opportunity. Our primary goal is to help people improve their lives and begin the process of moving forward.
    What Makes Bio-One of Columbus Different From Other Hoarding Cleanup Companies?
    Bio-One of Columbus sets itself apart from other hoarding cleanup companies in four distinct ways:

    Bio-One of Columbus come to give on-site estimates, never blind, inflated estimates over the phone. This allows us to give an accurate estimate and scope of work.

    Bio-One of Columbus do not give bait & switch quotes. Unlike other companies that lowball their estimates and then ratchet the price up as the job progresses, our experience and expertise allows us to give accurate estimates that reflect what the job will cost.

    Bio-One of Columbus are truly a local company, the owners and employees all call the Columbus area home, too. Other companies take your call from outside our community, and then subcontract your job out to some workers who are neither hoarding specialists nor trained professionals. Many times the contracting company does not even know the subs they have hired.

    Bio-One of Columbus respond to a hoarding cleanup request immediately because we are locally based. We're not heading into the area, we're already here.
    Does Bio-One of Columbus Share Information About Or Notify Any Other Entity Regarding A Hoarding Matter?
    Bio-One of Columbus goes to great lengths to ensure your privacy and our discretion. For starters, we use unmarked vehicles and we don’t suit up outside whenever possible. We’re also good at gently, but firmly, shooing away nosy neighbors and we don’t answer their probing questions.
    Does Bio-One of Columbus Offer Any Maintenance Or Follow Up Service After The Initial Hoarding Cleanup?
    Yes. Bio-One of Columbus offers a regularly-scheduled maintenance program where Bio-One of Columbus return to the residence or property after the initial cleanup and perform follow up services to ensure that it remains in the state it was when we completed the job.
    Do I Have To Get A Maid Service After You Are Done To Clean The Property?
    Yes. While the original hoarding cleanup will result in the removal of all necessary/requested items, the hoarding residence will still be in need of a thorough and detailed cleaning, due to the effects caused by the original hoarding situation. Bio-One of Columbus offers a detailed cleaning program to anyone who's interested.
