How Bio-One Works Directly with Your Insurance Company to Remediate Trauma and Crime Scenes

In times of family crisis, such as the loss of a loved one, unattended death, or a traumatic crime scene, the last thing you want to worry about is the cost of cleaning and restoring your property. Fortunately, many insurance policies cover these traumatic situations, providing a lifeline for those in need. Bio-One, with over 15 years of experience in trauma and crime scene cleanup, understands the challenges and complexities associated with these situations. That's why we're dedicated to working directly with your insurance provider to make the process as smooth as possible, from opening the claim to completing the project. This not only eases the financial burden but also allows you to focus on what truly matters - moving forward.

Understanding Insurance Coverage for Trauma and Crime Scene Cleanup

Before delving into how Bio-One collaborates with insurance companies, it's essential to comprehend the insurance aspect of trauma and crime scene cleanup. Many standard homeowners' and renters' insurance policies cover the costs associated with the restoration of properties affected by traumatic events. These policies aim to provide financial relief to those dealing with the emotional and physical aftermath of such incidents.

Bio-One's Role in Insurance Coordination

  3. Direct Billing: Bio-One offers direct billing to insurance companies. This means that you won't need to worry about managing financial transactions with your insurer. We handle it all, making the process hassle-free for you.
  4. Transparent Communication: Throughout the project, we maintain transparent communication with both you and your insurance company. This ensures that everyone is on the same page, and there are no surprises along the way.
  5. Experienced Guidance: With over 15 years of experience, our insurance coordinators are well-versed in navigating the complexities of insurance claims related to trauma and crime scene cleanup. We advocate on your behalf, ensuring that your policy is fully utilized.

Restoring Your Property, Restoring Peace of Mind

When insurance companies are involved, we ensure that the cleanup and restoration process proceeds without unnecessary delays. By working directly with your insurer, we minimize any financial barriers that might impede your ability to return to normalcy.

This approach not only simplifies the insurance process but also allows you to focus on the emotional healing and recovery that come with traumatic events. Grieving, coping, and finding support are essential steps on your journey, and Bio-One aims to facilitate them by handling the logistical aspects of trauma and crime scene cleanup.


In times of family crisis, insurance coverage can be a vital lifeline, and Bio-One understands the importance of leveraging this support. Our experienced team of insurance coordinators will work tirelessly to ensure that your property is returned to a safe and habitable state. By collaborating directly with your insurance company, we aim to make the process as seamless as possible, allowing you to focus on moving forward and finding healing during challenging times. Bio-One is here to provide not only restoration but also peace of mind when you need it most.

Losing a loved one is an incredibly emotional and challenging experience. Amidst the grief, there is a mountain of practical tasks and paperwork that must be managed. Bio-One can help with cleaning your loved one’s home and securing their belongings, but there are a number tasks the family must tend to close out your loved ones life. 

The process of closing out a person's life can take months, even years, to complete. In this guide, we'll walk you through the essential steps to navigate this intricate journey. 

**Immediate Actions After a Loved One's Passing** 

  • Get a legal pronouncement of death:  This is a critical first step in obtaining a death certificate, which is essential for many legal and financial matters. if your relative died at home, especially if the death was unexpected, you’ll need to get a medical professional to declare them dead. To do this, call 911 soon after your loved one passes and have them transported to an emergency room, where they can be declared dead and moved to a funeral home. If your family member died at home under hospice care, a hospice nurse can declare them dead. Without a declaration of death, you can’t plan a funeral, much less handle the deceased’s legal affairs. 
  • Learn about existing funeral and burial plans:  If your loved one had specific wishes, it's essential to honor them. Otherwise, discuss funeral and memorial plans with family to make informed decisions. 
  • Secure the property: Protect your loved one's home and belongings to prevent theft or damage during this vulnerable time. 
  • Provide care for pets: Ensure that your loved one's pets are cared for until a permanent plan is in place. 

**Within a Few Days of Death** 

  • Make funeral, burial, or cremation arrangements: Seek assistance from a funeral home and explore any available benefits, especially for veterans or members of organizations. If the person was in the military or belonged to a fraternal or religious group, contact the Veterans Administration or the specific organization to see if it offers burial benefits or funeral services. Benefits for veterans may include a military salute at the funeral or payment for a headstone or its engraving. 
  • Notify friends, family, and the employer: Informing people about the passing is not only a way to share the news but also to ensure that work-related matters are handled properly. 
  • Forward mail:  Redirecting mail not only prevents property vulnerability but also helps identify necessary subscriptions, creditors, and accounts to be canceled or paid. 

**Two Weeks After Death** 

  • Secure certified copies of death certificates: Get up to 10 copies of the death certificate. You’ll need death certificates to close bank and brokerage accounts, file insurance claims and register the death with government agencies, among other things. The funeral home you’re working with can get copies on your behalf, or you can order them from the vital statistics office in the state in which the person died. 
  • Find the will and the executor:  Locate the will and determine who will manage the estate's settlement, often known as the executor or personal agent. 
  • Meet with a trusts and estates attorney: While not always required, having an attorney can simplify the process, especially for larger estates. 
  • Contact a CPA:  If your loved one had an accountant, or even if not, it's crucial to handle tax matters correctly. 
  • Take the will to probate: The probate process ensures debts are paid and assets are distributed according to the will. 
  • Make an inventory of all assets: List all assets, from bank accounts to personal property, to facilitate the settlement process. 
  • Track down additional assets: Sometimes assets can be challenging to locate, so be thorough in your search. Comb your family member’s tax returns, mail, email, brokerage and bank accounts, deeds and titles to find assets. Don’t leave any safe-deposit box or filing cabinet unopened. 
  • Make a list of bills: Ensure that necessary expenses like mortgage, taxes, and utilities are paid during the settlement process. 
  • Cancel no-longer-needed digital services: Cease services like cell phone plans and streaming subscriptions. 
  • Decide what to do with the passport: Determine whether to keep it as a memento, return it officially, or destroy it. 
  • Notify relevant parties:   
    • The Social Security Administration (SSA): If the deceased was receiving Social Security benefits, you need to stop the checks. Some family members may be eligible for death benefits from Social Security. Generally, funeral directors report deaths to the Social Security Administration, but ultimately, it’s the survivors’ responsibility to ensure the SSA is informed. Call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to report the death, or visit your local SSA office. The SSA will let Medicare know that your loved one died. 
    • Life insurance companies: You’ll need an original death certificate and policy numbers to make claims on any policies the deceased had. 
    • Long-term care (LTC) insurance companies: If your loved one had LTC insurance, regardless of whether they were receiving benefits, you’ll need to notify the insurer of the death. 
    • Banks, financial institutions: If you share a joint account with your deceased loved one, you’ll need to notify the bank that they’ve died. Most bank accounts carry automatic rights of survivorship, which means if your name is on the account, you have full access to the funds when your loved one dies. You become the sole owner on the date of your relative’s death. Most banks will require a death certificate to remove the relative from the account. If the deceased person was the sole owner of a bank account, the bank will release funds to the person named as beneficiary once it learns of the account holder’s death. Many banks let their customers name a beneficiary or set the account as Payable on Death (POD) or Transferable on Death (TOD) to another person. You’ll need to show the bank a death certificate to get the funds released. If the owner of the account didn’t name a beneficiary or POD, things get more complicated. The executor will be responsible for getting the funds to repay creditors, pay bills and divide funds according to the dead person’s will. You may need to open a special “estate of (the deceased’s name)” account for any income received after death. 
    • Financial advisers, stockbrokers: Determine the beneficiary listed on accounts. Depending on the type of asset, the beneficiary may get access to the account or benefit simply by filling out appropriate forms and providing a copy of the death certificate (no executor needed). While access to the money is straightforward, there are tax consequences to keep in mind. You will be responsible for paying any taxes earned by the account once your loved one dies. Keep in mind, the tax burden could be significant on a well-funded investment account. 
    • Credit agencies: To prevent identity theft, send copies of the death certificate to one of the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian or TransUnion. You only need to tell one of them, and it will tell the others. 
  • Cancel the driver's license: Remove the deceased's name from records to prevent identity theft. 
  • Close or update credit card accounts: Handle credit card accounts to avoid any misuse. 
  • Terminate insurance policies: End coverage for home, auto, and health insurance policies. 
  • Delete or memorialize social media accounts: Decide whether to delete or create memorial accounts on social media platforms. 
  • Close email accounts: Prevent identity theft by closing the deceased's email accounts. 
  • Update voter registration: Notify relevant authorities to remove the deceased from voter registration rolls. 

Handling these practical tasks can be overwhelming but remember that you don't have to go through this process alone. Reach out to friends, family, and professionals like Bio-One for support. And above all, take the time you need to grieve and heal. 

In a world driven by profit margins and competitive markets, a motto like "Help First, Business Second" may seem like a refreshing departure from the norm. This simple yet powerful statement lies at the heart of Bio-One, a company that exemplifies the true spirit of empathy and social responsibility. But what does this motto mean in practice, and how does it set Bio-One apart from the crowd?

At its core, "Help First, Business Second" represents a commitment to putting people and their needs ahead of profits and bottom lines. It's a reminder that success should not be measured solely in monetary terms but in the positive impact we, as a company, can have on individuals, communities, and the world at large.

  1. Community Engagement and Support: Bio-One's commitment to helping others is evident in our active engagement with local communities. Rather than viewing our operations solely as a means to generate income, we see themselves as a resource that can contribute to the betterment of society. This may involve volunteering, organizing community events, and offering support to those in need.
  2. Customer-Centric Approach: In practice, "Help First, Business Second" means Bio-One prioritizes the well-being of their customers over profit. We aim to understand our clients' unique situations and tailor our services to address specific needs. This approach builds trust and fosters long-lasting relationships that go beyond transactional exchanges.
  3. Employee Welfare: Bio-One extends its commitment to help beyond its customers and into our own workplace. Employees are not just cogs in a machine but individuals with their own aspirations and challenges. We provide a supportive environment, offering opportunities for personal and professional growth, which, in turn, benefits both the employees and our business.
  4. Environmental Responsibility: In an era where environmental concerns are at the forefront, Bio-One's motto extends to its ecological footprint. We take proactive steps to minimize our impact on the environment, from sustainable sourcing to energy-efficient practices. Helping the planet aligns with our broader commitment to societal well-being.
  5. Philanthropy and Charity: Bio-One doesn't limit its mission to the boundaries of its business. We actively engages in philanthropic efforts, contributing time, resources, and funds to causes that matter. This altruistic spirit helps create a ripple effect of positive change in the world.
  6. Ethical Business Practices: "Help First, Business Second" also manifests in Bio-One's ethical business practices. We ensure transparency, fairness, and integrity in all our dealings, even if it means forgoing short-term profits. We understand that trust is invaluable and that a tarnished reputation can have long-lasting consequences extending beyond our business.
  7. Social Impact: The ultimate measure of Bio-One's commitment to "Help First, Business Second" is the tangible social impact we create. Through our actions, we inspire others in the business world to rethink their priorities and consider the broader implications of their decisions.

In a time when corporate social responsibility is gaining increasing importance, Bio-One's motto serves as a shining example of how businesses can be a force for good. It demonstrates that success need not come at the expense of others but can be achieved through a collaborative and compassionate approach.

In practice, "Help First, Business Second" is not a mere slogan but a guiding principle that shapes Bio-One's every action. It's a reminder that, in the pursuit of profit, we should never lose sight of our capacity to help, uplift, and make the world a better place. It's a call to action for businesses everywhere to reevaluate their priorities and, like Bio-One, put people and society at the forefront of their mission.

By now, most of us have heard of Marie Kondo’s famous book and Netflix series, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. It’s definitely nice to be in a clean space, but is it life-changing? Or magic? 

Believe it or not, clearing the clutter in your home really can make a big difference in many aspects of your life. 

Health & Safety

The most obvious reason to clear the clutter is for health and safety reasons. 

Too much mess can harbor the growth of dangerous germs, especially in bathrooms and kitchens. 

You need to be able to wipe down floors and surfaces. It’s also essential to throw away old food and make sure pipes are clear and functional. This prevents:

  • Mold growth
  • Insect infestations
  • Odors
  • Harmful microorganisms 

But what if you keep everything sanitary? 

Are there reasons beyond health and safety to pick up? 

Research tells us yes—clearing the clutter can benefit your health in a number of ways. 

1. Better Sleep

Sleep better

Decluttering can help you get a better night’s sleep—and not just because you no longer have piles of laundry on your bed. 

People living in cluttered homes are more likely to experience insomnia. The exact link between clutter and trouble sleeping isn’t clear, but it is somewhat of a chicken-and-egg problem. 

Clutter increases stress levels, which makes it harder to fall and stay asleep. Lack of sleep leads to difficulty concentrating and completing tasks, which can make it hard to clean. 

Imagine how your quality of life improves when you’ve had a good night’s rest. Now, let that feeling motivate you—better sleep is on the way.

2. Improved Social Life

Improved social life

When your home is messy, it can be difficult to have friends over. You may resist inviting others out of embarrassment, or it may not be possible for practical reasons. Everyone needs a place to sit, after all! 

When you create a fresh, welcoming space, you can enjoy the company of your loved ones in your own home. You can even host friends and family from out of town when they come to visit. 

Decluttering can help you cultivate your connections and begin creating new ones. 

3. Reduced Stress Levels

Even if you’re not consciously aware of it, clutter in your home may be affecting your stress levels. 

On a conscious level, seeing clutter can be a constant reminder of your to-do list. When you see a pile of items on your counter that need to be put away over and over again, your brain feels a little ping of guilt. 

Over time, constantly feeling that need to clean up can create a heavy stress load. And in this day and age when so many are working from home, that added stress all day every day while trying to be productive at work can quickly build to overwhelm.

Clutter can also affect your stress levels subconsciously. Seeing clutter can overwhelm your working memory

Your brain is constantly working on a subconscious level to determine what you need to pay attention to and what you need to ignore. When there are items everywhere, the brain works harder to process what should be noticed. 

On the other hand, cleaning up clutter lets your brain relax. Being in a clean room may decrease your cortisol, or stress hormone, levels

4. Better Focus

Just as your brain working hard to ignore clutter can lead to stress, it can also lead to distraction. Cleaning up your space can improve your ability to focus on tasks and get things done. 

Better focus

On a physiological level, your brain will simply have less stimulation. The more you see, the more work your brain has to do. When your area is clean, you can funnel that brainpower into whatever you’re working on. 

Clutter affects your focus on a conscious level, too. If you’re noticing cleaning tasks that need to be done, it can be hard to hone in on the task you’re working on. 

Even if you’re trying to focus on cleaning, multiple messy areas can make it difficult to choose just one. Every tidying task you complete gives your brain just a little more room to focus. 

5. Better Mood and Emotional Regulation

When you’re in a clean space, odds are you feel better. Studies link cleanliness to a better mood, feelings of accomplishment, and the ability to relax. 

Better mood

Even if life circumstances are bringing you down, having a well-ordered space can still help you respond more calmly to stress. 

Emotional regulation is the ability to respond mindfully to your emotions instead of reacting thoughtlessly to triggers. In a clean space, your brain is less distracted, giving you the mental real estate to process your feelings and respond thoughtfully. 

6. Increased Creativity

Increased creativity

Once again, it all comes down to brain space—when you’re not distracted by visual clutter or feeling guilty about jobs left undone, your brain has more space for other things. 

You can dedicate the time you spend worrying about clutter to solving problems and growing new ideas. If you create physical art, love home projects, or are a crafter, you’ll have space to work on your projects (and hopefully, motivation to clean them up when you’re done!). 

Let Bio-One Help

Despite all the benefits of having a clutter-free home, it isn’t always easy to make it happen. If you’re overwhelmed, let Bio-One help you. We have a discreet, compassionate team of cleaning experts who are passionate about helping you.

Bio-One of Fremont understands the critical role safety plays when it comes to unplanned events such as trauma, crime scenes, and hoarding situations, where safety protocols are of utmost significance to ensure their customers homes, offices and personal spaces are returned to a habitable condition.

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.

Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Every Bio-One owner works hard in their community, and we thank them for their time, dedication, and sacrifices.”

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.
