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!”

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.

How To Reopen A Business After COVID-19
Bio-One Can Help
As restrictions across the country start to lift, business owners are faced with new challenges on how to make workplaces safe for employees and customers. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has changed the way we think about safety.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has classified SARS-CoV-2 as a "Biohazard Level 3".
Biohazard Level 3 includes microorganisms that can be fatal to humans but for which vaccines or other treatments are available.
Most of us are familiar with the recommended safety behaviors to begin reopening public spaces and workplaces:
In addition to these safety behaviors, the CDC has released guidance for reopening businesses. Per the guidance, it is important for business owners and employers to develop a plan to clean and disinfect their workplaces. Disinfection should be done with a product from the EPA's List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2. It is also important to consider the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that should be worn by anyone who is using these chemicals. This guide is a helpful resource but is lengthy and can feel very complex.
Per the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers should monitor public health recommendations regarding COVID-19 and they should communicate these recommendations to employees. Employers who oversee staff that is cleaning and disinfecting need to consider the increased risks to employees due to exposure to COVID-19 and to toxic cleaning chemicals.
If all of this information seems overwhelming, don't panic. Consider calling a biohazard cleaning professional like Bio-One to answer questions. Bio-One has franchises across the country to help businesses of any size.
At Bio-One of Omaha we will give a free COVID-19 consultation to help you decide if your business needs a professional cleaning. Please give us a call at 402-521-4301 if you have any questions.
Mental Health Awareness Month
During the month of May, you will start to see green ribbons throughout social media or even out in town. These green ribbons are to help bring awareness to Mental Health during the month of May. Unfortunately, many people are affected by a mental illness and you may not even know it. National Alliance on Mental Illness breaks down some facts and numbers for us.
Prevalence of Mental Illness in the U.S.
Consequences of Lack of Treatment
Impacts of COVID-19 on Mental Health
2020 has brought new challenges to those experiencing mental illness. The social distancing requirements due to COVID-19 have caused an increase in calls to suicide hotlines. The anxiety and stress of financial impacts and the fear of losing loved ones are taking their toll across the U.S. While social distancing can help keep the illness from spreading, people are more isolated as they try to cope with fears, stress, and substance abuse. The demand for mental health counseling services is also on the rise.
Suicide hotlines are urging to people to reach out and call to check in with loved ones if you cannot see them in person.
If you, or someone you know needs help or just needs to talk please call the NAMI helpline listed below.

There are several companies who advertise they can perform disinfection services for your home or business. Before you chose who to hire, here are some questions you should ask:

All chemicals used by Bio-One are EPA List-N approved for fighting the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. We make sure all disinfectants are applied per product specifications.
2. Is proper PPE being utilized during the disinfection of your home or business?

We at Bio-One are fully trained on these protocols and follow them in their entirety.
4. Is the company you hire properly insured?
At Bio-One we are fully insured including pollution liability, specialty coverages for performing biohazard remediation. Ask to see the Certificate of Insurance (COI) for any company you are thinking of hiring.
If the company you are hiring cannot answer the questions above, they are not qualified to be considered to do the disinfection.
