Animal Hoarding Cleanup

Animal hoarding can be hazardous to not only the owners, but the animals as well. This practice leads to a severe drought of sanitation, food, water, medical care, and space. Conditions can become severe and should be treated by professionals.

You called the right 
ones for the job.

Nobody wins when it comes to animal hoarding. It can be a very dangerous situation for both the property owner and the animals themselves.

At Bio-One of Columbus, the safety risks are understood. We aim to provide a healthy and livable environment for anybody who’s been involved. 

Owner Risk

In our experience, the owners are put at great risk by hoarding animals. The danger lies in the fact that they can’t see that. Once the hoarding has started, animals are continually welcomed with no end in sight. The owner tends to neglect their own needs and provide for the animals first. 

Hygiene, food and water are the first to be affected by this practice. Animal waste gets airborne and can directly impact any food and water sources. This animal waste could be coming from:

  • rats
  • dogs
  • cats

Typically, their waste carries bacteria and parasites which are linked to human disease. Thus, tainting food and water available to the owner without their knowledge. 

Animal Risk

Much like owners, the animals in these situations tend to suffer from poor nutrition. It’s not uncommon to die from starvation.

These animals get into fights over territory and are frequently injured. Untreated maladies and mental distress from constantly fighting doesn’t end well. It’s not a good environment for them to be in. 

Cleaning Process

We work closely with the owner to ensure these risks are understood. Once that step has been reached, we continue with our cleaning process:

  1. Any items that have been highly contaminated by animal waste will be removed
  2. Cross-contamination safety protocols will be in place as a precautionary measure
  3. Once removed, the items will be disposed of responsibly

Our professional cleaning crews will be able to transform the impacted area into an unrecognizable utopia. Ultimately, we want to leave the home as good as new. Your comfort and safety is our top priority. 

Community Outreach

At Bio-One of Columbus, we work closely with the Columbus, OH community to ensure a safe and clean environment. We strive to make a difference here.

For many years now, we’ve been proud to partner with local authorities, charities and other groups. We offer them the most up to date cleaning methods and techniques to keep our area safe. As the owner, I, Tim Lockard, can promise that you’ll receive the best help available from the professionals at Bio-One of Columbus.

It took us forever to find a company that didn't feel like it was just an exorbitant fee because we were stuck with my dad and his hoarding tendencies. It was nice to get a compassionate group of people who genuinely not only cared about the job, but wad able to settle my dad's nerves with what he was able to keep. They found keepsakes and even cash and turned it over to us, their compassion, reliability, and reasonable prices will mean we'll (my family) will continue to sing their good graces. Everyone else just felt like they were leveraging our desire to move forward with how to stuff their pockets. Thank you to Marc and their team for everything you helped us through!

Tim answered the phone on the first call. He was super nice and very accommodating. Then he sent the most amazing crew along with Marc. Marc was so compassionate and so helpful. They went above and beyond to turn the house back into livable condition. They managed to turn a 3 day job into 2 days. Marc kept in touch the whole time, they were very respectful of the items in the house and were even able to save things we thought were beyond saving. If you have a mess, call them now, you need them. Thank you BioOne!!!

I was blessed to have Bio One Columbus. With Muchcompassion and loving Patience they came into my home and lovingly renewed my home. Being overwhelmed with clutter can seemingly ruin any chance of having a sense of Normal. Tim, Hannah, Fran and James restored that and more in my home. The whole atmosphere changed in a moist beautiful and revitalizing way. They know how to lovingly address every area in a way that allowed you add a customer to feel a part of the process, when needed, in a very respectful manner. Loving Patience is their expertise because they operate with hearts that care..

The unexpected death of a family member left us with an apartment in horribly bad shape. Tim and his crew came in and in an amazingly short period of time emptied out all of the piles of trash, clothing and other items. They not only cleaned the apartment, they also separated out items of value (like social security cards, documents, photos) for us to bring home. Tim was super to work with as he dealt with things in a compassionate, friendly, and professional manner. I'd highly recommend Tim and his team.

This is not a service I thought I would ever need but I’m so glad it exists. Tim was so kind and understanding and honestly such a bright spot in a really dark situation. I can’t say enough about the professionalism and efficiency with which the team works and I would recommend them to anyone with confidence. Thank you so much.

I cannot say enough great things about Tim and his team. We had a difficult family situation come up. Bio-One was responsive, fast, efficient, and (most of all) compassionate. It was unreal to see what they achieved in just two days. They also went out of their way to help us accomplish many extra things that were not included in the original quote. And the price did not change at all from the original quote. I feel very fortunate to have found them to help us.

I moved into my hoarder, deceased mothers house thinking I could clean it up. Instead, found myself deep in the same type of depression she was in. Instead of cleaning, I contributed to the mess. I contacted Bio-One and I am so thankful, greatful and blessed to have met this group. They are so understanding, caring bunch I would recommend them to anyone that needs help, and embarrassed or overwhelmed to ask for help. I am on awe of them.. thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤

They were all so understanding, professional, and kind in what can often be an embarrassing situation. I never felt pushed to get rid of things I didn't want to part with, and they really helped me clear out the chaos I was living in. I cannot thank them enough and am so incredibly grateful. I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to begin, and I could NOT have done it without them. They went above and beyond, all without changing my fee. I could go on, just cannot say enough about how they helped me - physically and mentally - get back to a more peaceful life that I'd let get out of control. Tim, Frannie, Hannah, Mark, and James - THANK YOU!! While I hope to never see you guys again (ha!) I will never forget you and what you did for me.
