JOE’S AZ BIO
Joe’s AZ Bio started out 16 years ago after Joe experienced a traumatic loss with a loved one close to him. After finding that there was a disconnect between the police leaving the scene and the lack of information on who to call for help after, he felt it in his heart to create a company that could do just that; bridge the gap. With that goal, he cultivated a biohazard cleanup company that not only remediates on an industry level, but also honestly educates while providing beneficial resources that will help in the recovery process.
