We had a blood incident in an apartment and hallways at a multi-family property we own. Since there were other tenants living in the building it was important to get a cleanup ASAP. The police on scene referred us to Bio-One Boston. They were very responsive and gave me a realistic time frame when they could be there. After arriving, explaining the process and setting up, the three of them began the clean up. The team worked efficiently and the job was completed in a few hours. All areas were cleaned and sanitized as promised. Thank you Bio-One for being there and helping me deal with this stressful situation!

Bio-One was prompt in their responses and providing an estimate. Their crew was professional and speedy in addressing the situation.
Allison Tyler
Told them my budget was $400 and the guy on the phone said it would probably be more than $400 so I said ok I could up my budget a little. They came and did the free estimate and said it would take about 2 hours or to clean up. They then come back with a $1500 quote $750/hr when I was told it was like 250-300/hr or so. Just seems like a ripoff for 2 hours of work and I clearly explained that my budge is $400… Dave was very nice though so nothing against him. He didn’t set the price.

I honestly can't thank Bio One Boston for everything they did during such a tough time for our family. Dave was absolutely the best, very caring and detailed. We hired them to clean out after a death and they were so professional, reliable and comforting. Dave is a wonderful representative for the company and Bruce handled dealing directly with the insurance company which was so helpful. I highly recommend Bio One Boston for all services they offer as we used them for numerous services.

"My family and I engaged Bio-One Boston after we discovered the extent of our sibling's hoarding issue after their unexpected death (of natural causes outside of the home). We were overwhelmed, and David came out the day after I called to provide an estimate, and was able to schedule the work within a week, which was so appreciated as it could be done before I had to return to my home out of state. My sibling had a one-family home, and Bio-One's team of 3 were able to clear clutter and create paths so we could enter the rooms, while also thoughtfully and kindly identifying mail, banking items, and personal jewelry that were important and meaningful for my family to have. Day 3 was dedicated to cleaning, and without hesitation they scrubbed down the bathrooms and kitchen, while the family sorted through items that we wanted to keep and those that could go. We were able to fill two dumpsters, and the team also removed furniture (chairs, couches, mattresses) and even the fridge. They offered to appropriately dispose of mail that otherwise would have needed to be shredded, and honorably dispose of well-used American flags. There was nothing we asked that they did not have a solution for. The service is expensive, but you honestly do get what you pay for - professional, sensitive, and high quality help for overwhelming tasks in a time of crisis."
Barbara Doyle
I can't say enough wonderful things about the team from Bio-One. After many years of battling rodents, they came in and cleaned and disinfectd my garage and basement. They were on time, informed, professional and above all, really nice guys. I highly recommend them

Incredibly passionate and understanding crew. They made this horrible process a lot easier to deal with.

"Dave at Bio One is the absolute backbone of this company. He was with us from start to finish, was impressively responsive and thorough, and even offered us some insight on unrelated issues from one homeowner to another. He made an atypical biohazard cleaning -- a dedandering of a new household due to severe allergies -- manageable. The quality of work he holds himself to is notable. That isn't to say there weren't _any_ glitches? Dave's team seemed very nice, but did not seem to be as attentive to detail when Dave was (needfully) absent for parts of the job. In addition to missing some spots here and there, a team member actively went against instructions, and put a bottle of cleaner on a surface that /specifically/ isn't supposed to have that cleaner on it -- to the point that we noted what cleaners should be avoided there. They could have ruined our kitchen's granite countertop. But we were able to restore it ourselves, and they handled the (minimal) cost of the materials for that fix. There were a couple places the adhesive for shelf paper was still left even after the second time through, but we ended up handling hat ourselves. Full Disclosure: Most people seek out Biohazard companies because of a tragedy, and those circumstances often involve insurance covering at least part of the costs. Ours was entirely out of pocket. To set expectations for those who need to do similar things: Biohazard cleanings are EXPENSIVE. But given the materials they use, the negative pressure areas they set up, etc., it's usually a one-time thing that makes the cost worth it. As long as Dave is at this company, I'd use Bio One again."

    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 Boston To Cleanup Your Hoarding Residence?
    Bio-One of Boston prioritize concern for the well being of our customers and their families, always following our slogan, “Help First, Business Second.” Bio-One of Boston 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 Boston Different From Other Hoarding Cleanup Companies?
    Bio-One of Boston sets itself apart from other hoarding cleanup companies in four distinct ways:

    Bio-One of Boston 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 Boston 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 Boston are truly a local company, the owners and employees all call the Boston 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 Boston 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 Boston Share Information About Or Notify Any Other Entity Regarding A Hoarding Matter?
    Bio-One of Boston 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 Boston Offer Any Maintenance Or Follow Up Service After The Initial Hoarding Cleanup?
    Yes. Bio-One of Boston offers a regularly-scheduled maintenance program where Bio-One of Boston 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 Boston offers a detailed cleaning program to anyone who's interested.
