Amazing work, great communication, and friendly people. I cannot recommend them enough.

Brian and his partner stopped by to inspect our house after a smell of mold. Within 10 minutes they were able to locate the source and put a plan of action together. Great customer service!

Brian and his team are professional, compassionate, reassuring, and excellent at clean-ups. Because of them, I woke up in a clean house today. They live to help people, and they change lives for the better. Don't be afraid to call them when you need help -- truly compassionate help is found here. I am so thankful for them.

Brian from Bio-One is exceptional, professional, and kind. We appreciate the hard work they did for us. I highly recommend this service to anyone in need.

Lynn and Brian went above and beyond with the job I had for them at the Apollo Theater in Lincoln Park. They not only dealt with the delicate situation with expertise, but also with a kindness and humanity that I greatly appreciated. The work they did was prompt and thorough, and the cost of the job was well-priced. I don't often need a biohazard clean up team, but if I ever need one again, there is no doubt in my mind that I will reach out to Lynn and Brian. Recommend.

Brian and his team did an amazing job! Brian was kind and considerate and put my fears at ease when he came to review the situation and give me an estimate. His team returned the next day and completed the project professionally and respectfully. His pricing was both competitive and reflective of my situation. I will be recommending their services to all my friends. I will use them again if the need ever arises. Thank you so much for your care and professionalism.

Bio-One Chicago North is trustworthy and I highly recommend their services. They made an unpleasant incident with my Mom with Alzheimer’s turn out to be bearable. They came to our house, the same day, assessed the situation and got to work. They were so understanding and professional.

Brian and Lynn are reliable, prompt, communicative, and empathetic. I have worked with them on two separate situations, one involving a dear friend and a multiple home situation. Another situation involved a hoarding tenant. Both times they have been extremely professional and made me feel like our case was solitary focus. They provided detailed reports on end of day and mid day for these bigger jobs and always locked up and communicated about check in and check out of the spaces. In both situations, they listened and learned about the folks with whom they were working to provide search and hold services for specific items. They still hold a weekly appointment longterm to help organize and let go of items in the larger of the two situations mentioned above. In this longer term job, they provide consideration in the items being sorted and removed, discretion, and real care for the person with whom they are working. It was a difficult and very lucky day the day I first called Bio-One. It is a relationship I feel incredibly privileged to continue.

    I had an exceptional positive experience with Bio-One. The owners are very nice and were quick to respond to a bad situation. They were very professional and did a stellar job! They worked with me to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction. I would highly recommend this company.

    Was referred to Brian and Lynn at Bio-One from our insurance agent when we had some water in come in the basement during a heavy rain. They suggested we reach out to them to see if we were developing a mold issue. Brian and Lynn both promptly came out the next business day from my call to them. Good news was we had no mold issue and the cost to us for the on site evaluation was zero. My wife and i were very impressed with their prompt response and thorough evaluation of our situation. They were very professional and personable. Would HIGHLY recommend this team!

    We retained Bio One to remove some furniture before my mother's house was sold. Brian came to the house promptly to review what needed to be moved and provide us with an estimate. We liked that Bio One has typical business insurance coverages in place. Some competitors are run more like side gigs without such protections. We also liked that Bio One would deliver anything in condition to donate to Habitat for Humanity. Some competitors will often pitch much of what they pick up and can't find someone to buy/take from them. Brian and his team clearly have moved furniture many times before, and were very effective and professional in clearing the house. We had 1-2 challenging pieces they figured out how to move cleanly. They kept us advised throughout the process and finished well within the time estimates they provided. The pricing seems comparable and competitive with other doing similar work. They also are very personable and easy to work with. My brother decided to keep a bookcase. Bio One had a job the next day near where he lives; Brian and his wife delivered the bookcase to my brother at no additional charge. We would use Bio One again for similar work, and will recommend them to friends and family.

    Brian and his team's service was amazing. Sadly, my neighbor recently passed away and had been dead for a week. The fire department had to break down his door and the coroner had to remove him, and my condo and our entire tier was overcome with the horrible smell that comes with a situation like that. My neighbor's family was out of town and could not be here for 3 days, so we had to move quickly or our building would have been uninhabitable. I got a crash course in finding a company that did this type of work and the reviews were horrible. The only one I found that was not was Bio-One Chicago North. I called him on Sunday at 1PM. He and his team were here by 3:30PM and went to work. They explained exactly what they were going to do and why and got to the business at hand. They spent over 3 hours here, and removed all of the bio materials-which included tearing up all the carpet and wood flooring-and disposed of them in hazmat bags/boxes that were then taken to a hazardous material company to be destroyed. They also set up a machine that took out the rest of the smell. By the time they left, I didn't have to wear a mask and my neighbor's place smelled normal. This was especially important as my neighbor's family was coming to an already tough situation and Brian's work made at least one part of it easier. Brian even came back for additional maintenance to ensure all the smell was gone and the scene was cleaned up. Brian's excellent: his service, his professionalism, his follow through, his reasonable price. Bio-One Chicago North is now the clean up company for our condo management company and I will definitely call him for other services such as removal of household goods, cleaning, and hauling. I highly recommend Bio-One North. Ken Cherry, Treasurer, Sheridan Court Condo Association.

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

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