Even more than the quality cleanup work they do, there's significant compassion and understanding that comes first. From the first phone call to getting a quote and service the next day, they were great, got the job done quickly, for a great price, and most of all, with kindness. Whatever kind of cleanup job you may need help with, whether you think it's huge or small and overwhelming either way, it's absolutely worth calling and asking for help!

"I've got to be honest, I never wanted to have to work with a company who does what these guys do. I don't think anyone does, but I'm so glad it was them. Discretion, transparency, professionalism... These guys nailed it. I'm one of the biggest skeptics of people these days for good reason, there are a lot of people out to make a dollar without regard for who they crush on the way and these guys are NOT THOSE GUYS. I know I'll need to use their skills again in a few years and they'll be the first ones I call. They'll be the only ones I call. 5 stars all day every day. Thank you guys!"

Bill and the crew from Bio-One Chicago are incredible. They are truly compassionate people and they perform their work with the utmost care, respect, and professionalism. In addition, they're extremely responsive, quick, and cost-effective. It's rare to come across a company - and a group of people - like Bill and his team at Bio-One.

I can't say how much I appreciate the work this team did for me. Life-changing is an understatement. They did an amazing job on what was coincidentally one of the worst days of my life. And they did it with kindness and great care. It was a reset I really needed, and I don't want to think about what that day would have been like without them.
Angie Seaman
I can't say enough good things about Bill and his team at Bio-One. Bill was very understanding about a difficult hoarding clean-out at my mother's house in Lake County, IL. The team worked diligently and discovered many valuable items I had no idea existed. They really went the extra mile to review, sort, and clean. Plus, the clean-out was very discreet to avoid any embarrassing conversations with the neighbors. Bill was in regular contact and is such an understanding and kind person. I interviewed numerous companies prior to selecting Bio-One. Bio-One clearly understood the human aspects of an unpleasant situation much more so than the other companies. And, based on the competitor cost estimates I received, I was very pleasantly surprised at the end of the job. Bill's estimate was accurate and ended up being a significantly better value than the next nearest competitor.

Crew did a great job cleaning my basement after a sewage back up… And Bill made the estimate process super easy too. Will definitely use again if needed in the future!!!!

Bill Muir and I met a few years ago. I have referred him to many people. Today he is doing work in my house, so grateful to know that the flood damage from the fish tank will be taken care of and my house will be whole once again.

We moved into a new home and discovered some remnants of mice in our utility room/crawlspace. BioOne came out and did a fantastic clean up job! The peace of mind is priceless. Thank you BioOne for giving me the best peace of mind in our new home!

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

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