A business like no other

Crime scene cleaning is an industry where you know you are making a positive difference in people’s lives. Here at Bio-One we believe in the motto: Help First, Business Second. Bio-One has the opportunity to help people in their greatest time of need and we are proud to make a difference. It's as close to being a hero on a day to day basis as you can get. Unfortunately, crime is a part of life and always will be. Where there are large groups of people, there are always problems.

A selfless business to own and operate

Work with our boys in blue to help your community. Within 2016 alone, there were an estimated 1.2 million violent crimes in the U.S. While we can’t stop it from happening, we can make the help pick up the pieces for those who have suffered from these traumatic experiences. Join this recession-proof industry and become a hero in your community.

A Day In The Life Of An Owner

Make a daily marketing plan

Decide which locations to market to, how much marketing material to bring, and what your plan of attack is for the day.


Based on which community you will be marketing to, practice your pitch accordingly. Bring along your little black book of marketing and your business and rack cards.

Call your team

If you get a call at any time of day, it’s your job to make sure your technicians are ready to arrive on a job site quickly.

Suit up for a job

When arriving for a job, you should have the proper PPE. We work with chemicals to clean and disinfect dangerous germs and pathogens. Safety is a requirement. ALWAYS.

Clean a bio job

Each call for a bio job is unique. Make sure you bring the right chemicals and equipment and you’ll be set to get the home back to normal.

Clean a hoarding job

A typical hoarding job can take a few days to complete. Clean, organize, and sanitize and you’ll be on your way.

Send an invoice

Price your job reasonably and send your invoice out. Work with your client or their insurance to get paid.
