For the 3rd Time, Bio-One Appeared on the Inc. 5000, Ranking No. 4,365

Denver, CO August 19, 2022 – Inc. revealed that Bio-One is No. 4,365 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. 
 
Sandi Ellis, President of Bio-One, had this to say about the achievement: “We are honored to be recognized and this is only possible because of our amazing Bio-One owners across the United States. Every Bio-One owner works hard in their community, and we thank them for their time, dedication, and sacrifices.”
 
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years. 
 
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23. 
 
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.” 
 
Ellis said, “While the ranking is a wonderful reflection of the company’s growth in the past 12 years, I am also excited for the future of Bio-One. We’re investing in new technology, improving our digital strategies, and are in the middle of launching a new brand. It’s an exciting time to be part of Bio-One!”
 
Bio-One Inc. is the first crime and trauma scene cleaning franchise with over 125 locations. Each location is owned and operated locally by caring members of their respective communities. In an effort to boost business growth and impact more areas, Bio-One was acquired by Five Star Franchising last year.

Methodology 

Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021.

Is your "good boy" going through a tough time?

Is she adjusting to the a new environment of did you get that new puppy for your kids and it is going to the bathroom EVERYWHERE? Maybe you just want a hand getting things back on track? 

Bio-One specializes in urine, blood & feces cleanup. Animal feces/urine are bio-hazardous waste, and sanitizing a home or business that has been exposed to these materials requires expert help. The cleanup and disinfection of pet urine and feces need to be done professionally because soap and water are not enough to decontaminate the surfaces. Not only do we thoroughly clean the area, but we get rid of the odor too.  

Bio-One technicians follow professional safety norms, while utilizing specialized equipment and training protocols in Philadelphia Area. If not treated professionally, animal feces/urine—and other body fluids like blood and vomit can cause diseases and spread viruses. 

Homes and businesses cannot afford to leave these infected areas unattended for too long, not with the serious risk of infectious disease. Bio-One will assess an area’s unique problem before tailoring a disinfection protocol plan.

Unattended Deaths 

Unattended death refers to a death that happens when no one is around. More often than not, the body remains undiscovered until several days or weeks have passed.

Some unattended deaths turn out to be suicides or homicides. Dealing with an unattended death can be traumatic for you and your family. 

Bio-One offers unattended death cleaning services you can depend on during this difficult time. 

We are here to help you navigate the issues involved in unattended death cleanup and to provide the highest standards in biohazard remediation.

Image

Our licensed technicians sanitize and deodorize residential, commercial and industrial locations affected by body decomposition. In many cases bodies decompose at rapid speeds, especially in warm climates, which leads to dangerous release of body fluids. Our decontamination services ensure that cleanup needs are handled professionally and that properties are properly restored.

Our process is the following: 

  • Deep cleaning: Our biohazard team will wear personal protective equipment during this first phase of the process, including goggles, surgical masks, gloves and other protective clothing. This will allow the team to  remove any trace of the biological materials from the area in which the deceased was found. The contaminated items will be removed and perform deep cleaning on all hard surfaces to create the safest environment in the affected areas.
  • Sanitization: Using the correct chemical compounds will ensure that bacteria and viruses have been eliminated, making the area safe for human habitation once more. This step is required to create a safe and hygienic environment and to reduce any risks associated with entering the area.

  • Deodorizing: We will use the appropriate deodorizing chemical compounds to eliminate all traces of the odors left behind and to create a fresh and livable space once again.  

  • Restoring the area: We will work diligently to remove any traces of the unfortunate event from every area. We will ensure that the residence is completely live able and that there is no trace of the unfortunate event.

Crime Scene Cleanup 

Bio-One employs certified technicians who not only provide expert cleanup services for traumatic crime scenes and homicides but do so with a deep sensibility to the emotional nature of the work which impacts families, property managers, and business owners.

Situations involving crime such as a homicide are unexpected and can result in injuries that leave behind blood and body fluids which need to be cleaned professionally and discreetly. When a home or business has been affected by a crime scene, and is impacted by blood and body fluids, it should be cleaned as quickly as possible. These scenes need to be cleaned professionally after the police investigation is completed.

Bio-One experts adhere to strict OSHA regulations when safely cleaning homicide scenes and other traumatic crime scenes by handling the removal of the biohazard material of the accident or crime. Biohazards from bloodborne pathogens are properly and discreetly disinfected, decontaminated and disposed. Once the entire area is cleaned of blood and body fluids, we can help you restore the location to its pre-incident state, with a concerted effort to properly handle any personal possessions that carry sentimental value.

Don't ever feel like you need to be the one to clean the impacted, crime scene area - this can be an emotionally taxing process as well as dangerous if done incorrectly.

Our professional crews are compassionate and discreet when working with families, property managers and business owners and are available 24/7. Bio-One ensures safe bio-hazard material handling and disposal, as well as complete cleaning in trauma or crime incidents. Bio-One provides crime and trauma scene cleanup services for properties such as residential homes, vehicles, communities, and businesses.

Odor Removal 

Spring cleaning season is up and running and we are here to help! Along with cleaning, you may encounter strong odors that have been lingering throughout the winter season. Strong odors are unpleasant. They are also potentially hazardous materials that can carry bacteria and dangerous gases. These odors may be from pets (urine), smoke or water damage. Our environmentally safe odor removal services sanitize all areas affected by the odor and discard household or commercial items that may have been compromised.

 

When eliminating odors from concrete, we would first clean the surface and then spray it with a chemical. The chemical is left to sit overnight sealed with plastic sheeting. 

 

The next day the plastic sheeting is pulled up and a odor sealant is applied to seal in the odors.

 

We do the same process for tile and hardwood, except no sealant is painted on the tile for obvious reasons. 

 

Odors are eliminated once the plastic sheeting is removed. 

 

Whether overwhelming odors affect your personal, commercial or industrial property, our odor removal experts in Philadelphia Area are trained to determine the source of the smell, decontaminate it, and safely dispose of hazardous remnants. We safely remove all traces of harmful allergens that can result in respiratory health problems and allergies.

A Clear Home Leads to A  Clear Mind 
At Bio-One, every hoarding job is unique and not only entails clutter clean up, but the recovery of all the items in the home that are still useful, valuable and sentimental to the client. We recognize and understand that this type of cleanup seems overwhelming for friends and family who are faced with the enormous task of attempting to sort through and organize an entire home full of miscellaneous clutter. Discarding possessions can be difficult. We work closely with the client and families to meet their specific needs while consulting every step of the process so that they feel safe and comfortable. 

Living in a cluttered home can be unhealthy and dangerous. Our experienced technicians, have encountered several safety threats in a cluttered home while handling different biohazards. The buildup of possessions over long periods of time increase the risk of accidental fires and injuries.

We work with our clients and families, to install trust while removing unwanted belongings and improving a safe and healthy living space.

Losing a loved one in an accident is incomprehensibly painful. The seeming unfairness and randomness of the moment is almost impossible to accept at first as grieving friends and family members try to rationalize what happened. They often feel guilty for not doing enough to prevent the death despite the fact that the incident was entirely out of their control. But nobody can prepare for the sudden and unexpected. Accidental deaths are by definition unnatural and unintentional. They include slips and falls, traffic accidents, poisonings, accidental weapon wounds, drownings, fire injuries, head traumas, industrial accidents, choking deaths, explosions, and natural disasters. Fatal accidents have always been a leading cause of death in America. But unfortunately, they are becoming more common.

According to the non-profit National Safety Council, accidental deaths increased 96 percent over the last 25 years.  Though they decreased significantly between 1950 and 1980, fatal accidents have been growing rapidly since the mid-1990s.Despite our innovation in creating safer technologies, today’s rate of 52.2 deaths per 100,000 people hasn’t been seen since the mid-1970s. Now, accidents are the number one leading cause of death for people aged 1 to 44, according to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionFor all demographics, they are the third leading cause of death nationwide, with 169,936 deaths reported by the CDC in 2017.

While researchers have not reached a consensus on why accidental deaths are increasing, the NSC points to three trends to explain the rise, including increases in poisonings, motor vehicle deaths and falls among older adults. All of these injuries are preventable, they say, arguing on their website that institutions “have not consistently prioritized safety at work, at home and on the road”. Poisonings, the leading unintentional injury among CDC data, increased 11 percent between 2016 and 2017 The NSC attributes the growth to the opioid crisis, which claimed the lives of 47,000 Americans in 2017 .

To put the CDC data into perspective, 466 people die from accidental injuries every day The number of friends and family members affected by the death of a loved one is even higher, resulting in an ever-growing community of people who must find ways to manage their grief. Bio-One works with these families every day to facilitate their steps towards recovery.

When fatal accidents happen, we dedicate our resources to helping families restore their home or business in a safe, private and efficient manner. Because first responders do not decontaminate crime scenes after they respond to a call, we step in to ensure that families are not exposed to disease and other dangers. Crime scenes harbor harmful bloodborne pathogens that contaminate the immediate area, leaving everyone on the property vulnerable to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Our licensed technicians use powerful, environmentally safe chemicals to thoroughly disinfect the area so you can rest assured that your family will be safe. We work with an appreciation for your valuables and will replace furnishings if need be. In hoarding situations, we remove clutter that may present a danger to other inhabitants, including feces and other biological waste.

                  When you give us a call at your local Bio-One office, we’ll immediately connect you with a representative that will address your unique situation. Because we value your time during this difficult moment, a team will be dispatched to your home or business within an hour to complete the service. When they arrive, they’ll come in unmarked vehicles to safeguard your privacy. Our team approaches their work with the sensitivity it demands and endeavors to address your needs with the compassion it deserves. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We are on standby 24/7/365.

We often forget about the people left behind in the wake of a homicide. News stories reveal who died but often fail to identify how their death impacts their loved ones. When someone is murdered, their family, friends and significant others endure one of the most traumatic experiences that anyone can face. These survivors are some of the least researched crime victims in America, and they are everywhere. According to the most recent FBI data, 16,214 Americans were murdered in 2018For every one of those individuals an average of 7 to 10 relatives were severely impacted, according to an estimate by Lu Redmond, a homicide grief expert

If the murder rate remains consistent, Redmond’s estimate means between 113,000 and 162,000 Americans will become homicide survivors each year. That’s in addition to the pool of survivors who already lost loved ones in previous years.  Though the lack of research makes it impossible to quantify how many total homicide survivors there are in America, the number is high enough to warrant concern for how they are treated by health professionals.

For survivors, the grieving process is almost impossible to endure. Though loved ones will grieve in different ways depending on their relationship with the victim, the loss is shocking, unimaginable and absolute. They never had a chance to say goodbye to their loved one, and the plans they both shared will never come to fruition. This realization may be sudden. In some cases, it may take years. Some survivors find it difficult to accept a loved one’s death at first, resulting in a delayed reaction that is triggered by a situation that reminds them of the victim. According to the National Center of Victims of Crime, grief symptoms include shock, disbelief, numbness, changes in appetite and sleeping patterns, difficulty concentrating, anger, confusion, increased anxiety and fear. Financial loss, depression and family conflict are also common symptoms.

                        Discovering a murdered loved one in the home can trigger post traumatic stress disorder. After the first responders leave the scene, some survivors may feel compelled to clean up the aftermath themselves. Confused that the paramedics don’t complete this work, they may think the cleanup process is their responsibility and act immediately. After all, they want to restore the scene as quickly as possible. Operating in a state of shock, they’ll remove the blood stains, body tissue and contaminated materials from the home without recognizing the threat to their physical and mental health. In addition to exposing their body to dangerous bloodborne pathogens, survivors may experience traumatic flashbacks of the experience in the future and suffer from heightened anxiety and emotional numbness. These PTSD symptoms prolong the recovery process, making it even more difficult for survivors to cope with their new lives. 

             Bio-One works with communities across the nation to avoid this outcome. We employ certified technicians that respond to scenes of violent crime and clean up dangerous biohazards that pose a threat to you and your family. When we receive a request for our services, we’ll send a team to the job site within an hour to assess your situation and perform a comprehensive cleaning solution that restores the property. Our powerful, environmentally friendly chemicals eradicate harmful pathogens that spread Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV, giving you assurance that you will be safe long after the area is decontaminated. We’ll dispose of the infected materials that cannot be salvaged and replace flooring and other furnishings if we need to. Once the area is thoroughly cleaned, we’ll return it to its pre-incident state so you can focus on recovering.

              We conduct this work because we want to help people who have been left to deal with a difficult, painful task. That’s why our company motto is “Help first, business second.” We don’t ask for payment until after the job is complete because we want to remove the safety threat from your home as quickly as you do. Every person on our team will arrive on-site with an understanding of the trauma you are going through and a respect for your privacy and personal needs. Contact your local Bio-One office today and we’ll immediately connect you with a representative that can assist you. We are available 24/7/365.
