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. Bio-One has been ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s 43rd Annual Franchise 500 for 2022, and in 2021 placed number one in Entrepreneur’s Best of the Best for Crime Scene Cleaning and Trauma Scene Cleaning.
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. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places.

Bio-One of Tristate Completes NY Mold Remediation Contractor Certification

Bio-One of Tristate is proud to have completed this certification course and to have prepared effectively to take on mold problems for clients in our service area
Proper Training Is the Key to Success
In the state of New York, all contractors who perform mold remediation must take this three-day course before providing these services. The course is offered by Flatley Read, a contractor for the New York Department of Labor and an accredited source for education on the dangers of mold and the best ways to combat it
At Bio-One of Tristate, we focus on proper education and workplace safety strategies that keep our team members safe and that remove contaminants and hazardous materials. We are committed to delivering safe and practical services for our clients in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Our dedication and quality work makes us a popular choice for remediation services and abatement solutions in our service area.
The Right Choice for Mold Remediation
Because we are certified in multiple fields of mold remediation, Bio-One of Tristate can provide practical help for a wide range of situations that include crime scene cleanups, medical waste disposal, cleanups for homeless encampments and remediation for floods and sewage backups. Our team is available for emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Give us a call today at 570-877-0868 to discuss your remediation and cleanup needs with us. We are here to help you enjoy the healthiest indoor and outdoor environments possible now and in the future.
Sewage backups that occur inside your home or business can be distressing and messy. Worse yet, most insurance policies will not cover damages caused by these events without a specific rider on your home or business insurance policy. Trying to manage the cleanup process on your own is not usually a practical approach. The contaminants present in sewer water can cause illness or discomfort for those not equipped with the proper protective gear. At Bio-One of Tri-State, we offer practical help for those facing sewage backup remediation in New Jersey, New York, and throughout our service areas.
Gray Water vs. Black Water
Sewage is generally divided into two separate categories:
Gray water or grey water is wastewater produced by showers, tubs, washing machines and dishwashers. This water can contribute to the growth of mold and mildew inside buildings. Gray water can also contain parasites that can be hazardous to human and animal health. It is not, however, generally associated with an increased risk of the transmission of diseases.
Black water, on the other hand, is the wastewater used to flush toilets. This wastewater contains human waste products and is extremely dangerous to those who come in direct contact with it. Black water is associated with at least a dozen diseases that include encephalitis, hepatitis A, leptospirosis, giardiasis and gastroenteritis.
It is not always easy to tell whether the sewage backup inside your business or home consists of black water, gray water or a combination of both. The bioremediation experts at Bio-One of Tri-State can resolve issues with sewer backups to keep you safe from some serious risks associated with these incidents.
Risks of Exposure to Sewage Backups
Raw sewage that backs up into your home or your business can contain parasites, viruses, bacteria, fungi and many other contaminants that could pose a risk to you or your cleanup crew. Mold is a very common pollutant in sewage and can grow and proliferate in the moist conditions that follow a sewer backup. This can cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. The cost of a sewage backup in NY can then turn into a mold remediation if not proactive at the time.
Black water can carry many diseases that can be transmitted to workers without the proper protective equipment and gear. These illnesses can pose serious risks to individuals within your organization or to your family members.
Failing to remove all traces of black water and gray water from your home or business premises can also cause persistent odors, which could reduce the value of your property as well as its appeal for those who live, work or visit these areas. This could add up to significant financial losses for your business and a reduced quality of life for your family inside your home.
How Bio-One of Tri-State Can Help
At Bio-One of Tri-State, our trained and experienced technicians have the protective equipment and the proven knowledge needed to remove every trace of your sewer backup and to restore your home or business to a safe and livable condition. We specialize in extreme cleaning situations and can take the stress and worry out of managing sewage backups on your property. We work with all major home insurance companies to keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as possible. Give us a call today at 570-877-0868 to schedule a consultation or to request our decontamination services. We look forward to the opportunity to serve your extreme cleaning needs.

Odor Removal Company in PA, NY, and NJ
As a property owner, you may occasionally encounter unexplained odors that can affect the value and livability of the homes and businesses you own. If you are about to purchase a property or to renovate a rental space, understanding four common sources of odor can help you make preliminary plans to deal with these issues efficiently and effectively.
These smells can permeate drywall, wood, concrete or vinyl to make indoor air far less pleasant and to present a long-term problem. Determining what is responsible for the odors affecting your property can help you deal with these issues more effectively once your physical inspection is complete.
Bio-One provides comprehensive odor removal services and can customize a unique plan to meet your needs.
Detecting Odor From Pet Urine
Residential properties where pets have been allowed can often have a strong odor of dog or cat urine. The evidence of this can sometimes be seen during your physical inspection. Ammonia is often the strongest smell associated with pet urine. It can sometimes be removed by using commercially available products after a complete inspection of the property to identify the problem areas. Odor removal firms can also offer added help in managing issues with this unpleasant odor.
Detecting Odor From Death and Decay
The odors associated with an unattended death or decay of a large animal or human body are among the most unpleasant smells known to man. Decomposition and the odors it can produce must be addressed by a company that provides odor remediation services designed to remove all traces of the event and to restore the property to a clean and hygienic condition. In some cases, moisture sensors may be used to pinpoint the exact location of the odor. This can speed the process of death and decay odor remediation to a significant degree.
Detecting Odor From Mold
Mold can grow in areas that become wet because of flooding, leaks or damage to pipes behind walls. Odor removal services alone are not enough to address this problem. If this issue is identified during your home inspection, you should work with a company that specializes in mold remediation to eliminate any trace of this dangerous contaminant. Left un-remediated, this fungal growth can cause symptoms ranging from minor respiratory issues and skin irritation to significant infections and toxicity. Comprehensive mold remediation is essential to prevent these serious health issues from affecting your family or your tenants. Moisture sensors can also be placed to identify the source of the problem and to prevent further problems in the future.
Detecting Odor From Incomplete Combustion
A fire that damages your property but does not destroy it can leave behind strong smells and, in some cases, hazardous materials that must be removed before the property is safe for human habitation. The odors associated with fires can seep into drywall, wood, concrete and vinyl to create issues that are best resolved by a company that specializes in residential and commercial odor removal services.
The Odor Detection Process
Before odor issues can be addressed, the odor must be identified to determine the right method for resolving the problem. Odor detection techniques may include the use of advanced sensors and blacklight sensors to find the locations that have been affected. Working with a company that offers cleaning and odor remediation services is often the best way to manage these issues and to promote the freshest and healthiest indoor environments for yourself and for those who live and work in these properties.
Once the source of the odor has been found, working with a company that specializes in biohazard cleanup is the best and safest way to resolve these issues quickly and with a minimum of disruption. This can make property management an easier task now and in the future.
Give us a call at 570-877-0868 and check our serve areas to see which communities in PA, New York, and New Jersey we serve for professional odor removal. Our team is available 24/7.

Who Cleans Up Crime Scenes?
DEC 22, 2020 byJUAN MORALES
After a violent crime occurs in your home, you may be wondering who is responsible for cleaning up the crime scene. These traumatic events can leave blood and other biological materials that could contaminate the area in which the crime occurred. Understanding who is responsible for cleaning up the scene and who pays for these services will help you manage the situation in the most practical and painless way possible for yourself and your family.
Who Is Responsible for Crime Scene Cleanup? After a violent crime, many property owners believe that law enforcement or the coroners office will perform the cleanup necessary to restore the area to a safe and livable condition. In fact, the property owner is responsible for these tasks. While you don't have to clean the crime scene yourself, you will be responsible for the process of restoring and remediating the scene to create a safe environment.
Why You Should Invest in Professional Crime Scene Remediation. There are several primary reasons who you should elect not to undertake a crime scene cleanup on your own.
Violent crimes can create trauma for you, your family and your employees. Attempting to clean up the remaining evidence of the crime could increase the traumatic effects of these events.
Who Pays for Professional Crime Scene Cleanup or Biohazard Remediation?
There are funds that can sometimes contribute financial help for property owners who are struggling with the costs of remediation for a crime scene on their property. Your homeowners insurance may also include coverage for these situations. In general, however, you will assume the bulk of the responsibility for the cost of cleaning up the crime scene.
When Can Crime Scene Cleanup Commence?
In most cases, you can begin the remediation and cleanup process as soon as officials at the coroners office release the scene. Your first call should be to a professional crime scene remediation service. These professionals will assess the crime scene and will provide you with the right guidance for dealing with the situation quickly and efficiently to restore normalcy to your home or business.
If you need help after a crime is committed on your property, contacting a firm that specializes in biohazard remediation and crime scene cleanup is a solid first step toward resolving this situation and getting things back to normal. By working with a company that specializes in these services, you will be able to put the incident behind you to move on with your life and your regular activities. Our trained response teams are standing by to assist 24/7 with crime scene remediation services throughout Northeast Pennsylvania and New York Counties of Orange, Sullivan, and Dutchess. Give us a call at 570-877-0868 to get the peace of mind you deserve from the professionals that Help First.
The amateur drug labs used to manufacture fentanyl and other substances can pose serious risks both to first responders and to other individuals who may come in contact with these crime scenes. If your property has been used as a location for the manufacture of fentanyl, methamphetamine or other controlled substances, you need professional help to resolve this issue and to restore a safe environment for yourself and others.
What Is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that was once used by doctors to treat patients with severe and chronic pain. It is about 100 times more powerful than morphine, which has made its manufacture and sale a profitable enterprise for some criminal elements. The makeshift laboratories used in the production of fentanyl can be severely contaminated with this dangerous substance, which makes them hazardous to HAZMAT technicians, DEA agents and anyone else who comes in contact with these crime scenes.
What Is Methamphetamine?
Methamphetamine is a stimulant that acts on the central nervous system to produce an addictive high. Both the chemicals used to produce methamphetamine and the drug itself can be harmful. Like fentanyl, the labs used to create methamphetamine are generally contaminated with chemicals that can be dangerous to those exposed to them.
Do Not Attempt to Clean the Property on Your Own
Highly trained technicians are required to safely and effectively remediate a fentanyl contamination scene. These individuals are typically certified to remediate drug and meth labs and to safely remove and dispose of biohazardous drug paraphernalia and manufacturing equipment. If you suspect fentanyl or methamphetamine contamination is present on a property you own, it is essential to contact law enforcement and to enlist the assistance of experienced and trained professionals to neutralize the fentanyl compound and to remove all traces of the drugs safely and effectively.
The Drug Scene Cleanup Process
Because the chemicals used in the production of fentanyl, methamphetamine and other drugs are so toxic, the highly trained technicians who perform this type of work must wear Level A PPE or personal protective equipment. This equipment usually includes a fully encapsulating chemical protective suit, two layers of chemical-resistant gloves, a positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus or respirator and chemical-resistant boots. This is necessary because of serious health risks that are associated with exposure to fentanyl, methamphetamine and the chemicals used to produce these drugs.
Dangers of Fentanyl and Methamphetamine Drug Scene Cleanup
Some of the most serious risks associated with exposure to fentanyl and methamphetamine drug labs include the following:
Absorbing even a small amount of fentanyl through the skin or by inhaling it can lead to respiratory issues, which could result in long-term health problems or death.
Inhalation of the chemicals used in the manufacture of methamphetamine have been shown to cause respiratory difficulties, including coughing, shortness of breath and an increased risk of cancer. Nausea, headache and long-term damage to the brain, liver and kidneys have also been associated with exposure to this dangerous drug and the chemicals used to make it.
Our Bio-One local office servicing Scranton, Northeast PA, and NY State has been certified to remediate drug and meth labs and is the only way to safely remove and dispose of biohazardous drug paraphernalia, chemical compounds and the equipment used to manufacture these substances. By enlisting the services of experienced and train professionals, you can resolve fentanyl or methamphetamine contamination in the most effective way possible. Call us at 570-877-0868 to speak with highly trained technicians.
Unattended deaths can create a number of issues for the family members of the deceased person. One of the most serious problems concerns the odors that a decomposing body can often produce. This can result in lingering odors that can affect the value of the property and can have a negative psychological effect on you and your family members. The unmistakable smell of death consists of six distinctive odors that must be addressed during the biohazard remediation process.
Cadaverine and Putrescine: Rotting Fish Odors
The rotting fish odor produced by the human decomposition process is mostly attributable to the gases cadaverine and putrescine. These chemical compounds are found in small amounts within living organisms and are the two most prevalent chemical compounds produced by decomposing bodies of humans or animals. Exposure to putrescine and cadaverine gases in large quantities can be toxic. For this reason, it is of critical importance to undertake biohazard remediation as quickly as possible.
Indole: Mothball Odors
An organic compound in crystal form, indole is commonly found in both coal tar and in human and animal feces. It is produced when bacteria proliferate in the absence of oxygen, a state that results as the body decomposes. Indole has an acrid smell that resembles that of mothballs and that can permeate areas where an unattended death has occurred.
Skatole: Feces Odors
The gas skatole is normally present in human and animal digestive systems. It is produced in large quantities, however, when the materials in the digestive system begin to break down and decompose inside the body. Skatole is related to indole and is the primary reason that feces smell unpleasant. In cases of unattended death, skatole can create odors that can be upsetting to family members and friends of the deceased person. Removing the source of these odors with professional remediation and cleaning is necessary to eliminate the smell associated with skatole gas contamination.
Dimethyl Disulfide and Dimethyl Trisulfide: Rotten Garlic Smells
Both dimethyl disulfide and dimethyl trisulfide gases are produced during the decomposition of plants, animals and people. These chemical compounds are released into the air to create the smell of rotting or contaminated garlic. They can usually be effectively removed by implementing a professional process utilized to clean up a death scene. This will typically eliminate the odors associated with unattended death as well as the hazards associated with these gases.
Hydrogen Sulfide: Odors of Rotten Eggs
One of the most hazardous gases associated with unattended deaths, hydrogen sulfide gases are poisonous and flammable. In certain conditions and in enclosed areas, hydrogen sulfide can even explode. It is essential to remove all traces of this gas from the area to create a safe environment for humans. Hydrogen sulfide is associated with a strong odor of rotting eggs, which can cause both psychological and physical distress among those exposed to it.
Methanethiol: Rotten Cabbage Smells
Most commonly associated with the odor of rotten cabbage, methanethiol is a gas that is released from decomposing bodies. It is partially responsible for bad breath and the odor associated with flatulence. Like hydrogen sulfide, methanethiol is flammable and can pose serious risks for the safety of the property and the health of those who may be exposed to it in enclosed spaces.
The Value of a Qualified Biohazard Remediation Company
Working with a company that specializes in PA biohazard remediation after an unattended death will allow you to resolve these issues more quickly and will provide real protection for you and your family. Professional remediation for unattended death scenes can provide the following benefits:
Professional biohazard remediation takes less time and causes less emotional stress than attempting to deal with these situations on your own. The experience and expertise of a professional firm can ensure that odors and contaminants are completely removed, which can promote a healthier environment in the affected area when cleaning and remediation have been completed.
Professional firms have the safety equipment needed to handle these situations more effectively. Goggles, gloves, respirators, face masks and protective clothing are provided for remediation technicians to prevent exposure to hazardous chemicals that can linger on surfaces or in the air.
New York Biohazard remediation companies offer immediate help for you and your family in managing issues with unattended death quickly and safely. This can take one worry off your mind in the aftermath of these tragic events.
Your biohazard remediation team will provide you with the appropriate services to deal with all stages of decomposition. This will allow you to manage these issues in the most painless way possible for yourself, your family and your friends.
