I often times get asked, What is Bio-One and what do we do? You should see the looks I get when I tell people that we handle many traumatic events like suicides, homicides, undiscovered deaths, or hoarding situations. The almost always say “I bet you have seen some crazy stuff”. People think that we are crazy, nasty, or even disgusting for dealing with these scenes. Well, I really enjoy what I do and here is why.
I am not some sick and twisted person that loves the site of blood. We are kind, compassionate, caring individuals who want to get families through a tough time. In fact, it makes me very sad every time we are on a scene and I know that someone has lost a friend, family member, coworker, etc. The truth is these individuals have a tough enough time dealing with the stresses associated. They must work with coroners, funeral homes, law enforcement, court systems, and many other things that they never thought about. The last thing they should have to do is clean up the remains of their loved ones. That’s where we can help.
I have looked back on my past as a manufacturing expert and a volunteer firefighter. When I dwell on these my experience I have come to realize that my passion is helping people. I really enjoy knowing that I can and have made a difference in some way. Here at Bio-One we have the experience, knowledge, techniques and proper equipment to get these scenes cleaned up quickly and safely so that the family can focus on the grieving process to get their lives back to normal as quickly as possible.
The best part about all of this is that in most cases we can utilize the clients home owner’s insurance to pay for our services. We gather policy information and take it from there. In most cases we call in the claim for the client to get the process started and deal with the insurance companies directly. One less thing for the client to deal with on their end.
We generally don’t even discuss payment on the scene. We would rather get in get the situation resolved and get out. We will worry about payment when the time is right, and the stress has calmed down.
We hope you never have to use our services, but we are here if you find yourself in a tough position. While we can’t make the hurt go away but we can make the circumstances better. If you find yourself asking “What do I do now?” Give Bio-One a call and we will be more than happy to help get you through it.
Helping first, business second!
