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 Des Moines, 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 Des Moines, we work closely with the West Des Moines, IA 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, Derek and Daniela Myers, can promise that you’ll receive the best help available from the professionals at Bio-One Des Moines.

I would highly recommend Bio-One Cleanup. I had a home that was in very bad shape and would have taken me months to cleanup. In one day that had everything out of the house and made my job so much easier. Joel and his entire staff were very professional during the job. They always made sure if they found something that may interest me to let me know before they discarded anything. Joel and his crew are excellent!!

after making the call It was suggested that I refer to Joel as my friend when convincing a relative to have their home cleaned out after many years of hoarding. “My friend” Joel coached me thru an overwhelming situation. Joel and his team were wonderful to work with. Bio-One’s kindness and professional expertise got my family thru quite an ordeal. My family member has a healthy living situation now thanks to my trusted friend.

Dear Joel/Bio-One: Just wanted express the tremendous satisfaction that we have for the services you provided (consultation, mold remediation, recommendations) & gratitude for the way you assisted us during such an emotional/stressful time. We were immediately able to set up a time when you could come asses the property/structure & estimate treatment. Your professionalism in dealing with such a multi-faceted situation was readily apparent, as you shared knowledge & compassion. Possibly the most important reason why we chose you/your company to help us in the "reclaiming" of our mother’s home was how personable & honest you were with us throughout the entire process. You were absolutely terrific in listening to our concerns & giving thoughtful advice on how to better deal with issues. God Bless! V.U.D.M.K.W.

Joel Akers conducted an onsite review of the scope of work and provided an estimate to completely clean out three houses and six garages in a small community in Northern Iowa. A collaborative agreement was reached and Joel and team started work approximately a month later. The scope of work was accomplished in five days. The team worked steadily at the job and were professional and friendly. Joel arranged all large dumpsters needed for the job. Basic cleanup was accomplished at each work site. Each day they had us review certain items per our criteria to determine whether to hold or dispose. The volume of work accomplished was significant. I recommend Bio One; they are easy to talk to and work with!

After a death in our family we needed crime scene clean up services. Bio-One was very helpful, answering my questions and working with me to get us in the schedule asap even though it was Christmas week. The cleaners were very thorough and kind. They came in an unmarked truck so that the neighbors wouldn't know what was going on. Their services were covered by home insurance. If you are ever in this unfortunate situation, I highly recommend using them.

My wife and I feel very blessed we found Bio one. They took the time to listen what we needed done and offered some ideas that we over looked. They didn't judge the situation we were in. The crew was very friendly, professional and cared about the job we needed done. I definitely recommend BIO ONE.

After moving in the middle of a very hectic year our garage became completely unmanageable. I tried some professional organizers and they weren’t interested in doing a garage. That lead me to googling hoarding clean out companies. I found bio-one. They were professional and efficient, even when I was frustrated and overwhelmed. We got our garage cleaned out in 4 hours. It would have taken my husband and I days (we don’t have) and a divorce to get this done. I know this wasn’t their specialty, but if I required their services for trauma, crime scene, or extreme hoarding, I would absolutely trust them.
