The Business of Helping People:  Behind the Scenes of a Crime and Trauma Scene Cleaning Company

After the police are gone and the yellow tape has been cut, who is responsible for remediating crime scenes? The job is much more than cleaning up blood, tissue, human waste, or toxic drug residue. Bio-One’s technicians are the unseen force that restore normalcy and stability to the families affected. 


Historically, crime scene cleanup has usually been done by the victim's family. For many, facing the ghastly scene of such personal trauma was too much to bear and had lasting effects. In addition, scientific advancements in the 20th century have raised concerns over exposure to bloodborne pathogens and chemical residue. The need for trained technicians has given way to Bio-One being one of the nation’s leading crime scene clean up companies.


We never know what we’re going to walk in to, so we go in with the mindset that we’re here to help and will do whatever it takes to get that family and their home back in order.  Knowing we are helping is how we handle the things we see and touch.


We keep our work as discreet as we can, and that’s why you will never see our name on our trucks. If there were a suicide or homicide in your neighborhood, it’s true that you would want to know.  But, the details are not ours to share and we certainly want to respect the privacy of such delicate matters for the family members.  


This job is not for everyone because the work can be both physically and emotionally taxing.  On the other hand, it is one of the most rewarding professions one can do.

There truly are jobs that make us lose our faith in humanity but then when the work is complete and the family members cannot thank us enough for helping them, we realize why we personally are in this business and why our employees are so dedicated.


If you ever know anyone who may need our services OR you are interested in helping others, please don’t hesitate to contact BioOne Akron.
