Theresa Borst, President
In 1998, Theresa formed Bio Clean, Inc. to provide cleanup services to those who had experienced the loss of a loved one to suicide or homicide, and those who were facing cleanup because their loved one’s death had not been discovered quickly. She couldn’t imagine having such a tragedy occur only to have to then deal with unpleasant reminders of a loved one’s passing—such as cleaning up blood or bodily fluids expelled during their passing. It was here that her first mission statement was born; keeping families from being traumatized twice.
Since then, she has worked to provide compassion-based services to every client. Whenever the worst happens, Theresa and her team are there to provide compassionate care.
