James and his team took a project that had been mentally exhausting me for months and solved it in just a few hours. Very quick, professional, and flexible to work with!
Olivia B.
Truly great people to work with. I appreciated the empathy and kindness I received for a very heartbreaking situation.

James is wonderful. He is professional and does amazing work but what was such a blessing is that he was so so kind. The clean up he did for us was really quite disgusting and he didn’t bat an eye. He was very clear in his communication and did great work. I just can’t stress how kind he is-he’s got wonderful energy and his way of being really made the terrible experience of having to get a biohazard in my dads home cleaned much less traumatic. I can’t recommend James more highly.

The team came out and was very professional and personable. My brother and I utilized the team after the passing of a family member and needing to clean out their own. The team set aside anything that looked important or sentimental and was very thorough cleaning. They strived for customer satisfaction and did a wonderful job!

During a very stressful family Situation James and his crew came in and got the job done. Nothing was too much to ask. They were very professional and caring. They do excellent work.

"100% the best service you can find. Obviously in a trying time, you're looking for honesty and an excellent human to work with. James is that one. Sure, I don't usually need to recommend a bio-hazard clean up person (and I hope I never have to again), but James is the top. I had already scheduled a quote with another company, but after reading reviews I decided I should look into other companies. I called James, and immediately cancelled my other quote. He was prompt, considerate, and 100% understanding of the circumstances. Also he looks amazing for his age, not like that's important. I appreciate him and his work and will forever thank him."

    Bio-One of Philly owner, James McArthur
    James McArthur
    Owner
    James McArthur is 51 years old and was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Being the second of three children from a single mother, he learned the values of hard work, caring, love, and service to the community at a very young age. He even attended college twice a week while still in high school. James started his own small company, then another, and another, until he came across Bio-One. He instantly fell in love with the motto: "help first, business second." James grew up believing that "we all should be attached to something greater than ourselves." He views Bio-One as his chance to help people, and the community, on what is most likely a day of tragedy. People always ask him, "how can you do something like this every day?" His answer has always remained the same: “If I can shield a family from further exposure by absorbing the trauma and saving the memory of their loved one, I’m going to.” It gives him renewed strength and energy to know he’s made a difference.

    I highly recommend Bio One. They were very professional and courteous, and completed my job at the end of their long day (it was a same day service request). Their services were reasonably priced, yet very thorough. You will not be disappointed.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What is Hoarding?
    Hoarding is a behavioral pattern characterized by the excessive acquisition of and inability to discard large quantities of objects that cover the living areas of a home and cause significant distress or impairment. 

    Compulsive hoarding behavior has been associated with health risks, economic burdens, and adverse effects on personal relationships. When clinically significant enough to impair functioning, hoarding can prevent typical uses of space so as to limit basic daily activities like moving through the home, eating, and sleeping. It can also put people at risk due to increased risks of injury, fire, and disease.
    Why Hire Bio-One of Philly To Cleanup Your Hoarding Residence?
    Bio-One of Philly prioritize concern for the well being of our customers and their families, always following our slogan, “Help First, Business Second.” Bio-One of Philly soundly reject the business-first mindset of other companies who see people and their families asking for help as vulnerable and exploit the economic opportunity. Our primary goal is to help people improve their lives and begin the process of moving forward.
    What Makes Bio-One of Philly Different From Other Hoarding Cleanup Companies?
    Bio-One of Philly sets itself apart from other hoarding cleanup companies in four distinct ways:

    Bio-One of Philly come to give on-site estimates, never blind, inflated estimates over the phone. This allows us to give an accurate estimate and scope of work.

    Bio-One of Philly do not give bait & switch quotes. Unlike other companies that lowball their estimates and then ratchet the price up as the job progresses, our experience and expertise allows us to give accurate estimates that reflect what the job will cost.

    Bio-One of Philly are truly a local company, the owners and employees all call the Philly area home, too. Other companies take your call from outside our community, and then subcontract your job out to some workers who are neither hoarding specialists nor trained professionals. Many times the contracting company does not even know the subs they have hired.

    Bio-One of Philly respond to a hoarding cleanup request immediately because we are locally based. We're not heading into the area, we're already here.
    Does Bio-One of Philly Share Information About Or Notify Any Other Entity Regarding A Hoarding Matter?
    Bio-One of Philly goes to great lengths to ensure your privacy and our discretion. For starters, we use unmarked vehicles and we don’t suit up outside whenever possible. We’re also good at gently, but firmly, shooing away nosy neighbors and we don’t answer their probing questions.
    Does Bio-One of Philly Offer Any Maintenance Or Follow Up Service After The Initial Hoarding Cleanup?
    Yes. Bio-One of Philly offers a regularly-scheduled maintenance program where Bio-One of Philly return to the residence or property after the initial cleanup and perform follow up services to ensure that it remains in the state it was when we completed the job.
    Do I Have To Get A Maid Service After You Are Done To Clean The Property?
    Yes. While the original hoarding cleanup will result in the removal of all necessary/requested items, the hoarding residence will still be in need of a thorough and detailed cleaning, due to the effects caused by the original hoarding situation. Bio-One of Philly offers a detailed cleaning program to anyone who's interested.
