William (Bill) York has a professional history of helping people facing difficult situations. He started his career in his family’s funeral business, and had his own livery service for the Medical Examiner’s office and local funeral homes after that. He started BioSpecialists, LLC 14 years ago when he saw the need to offer greater clean up services to help families following tragedy. These contaminated scenes commonly involved significant odors, and Bill was not satisfied with simply covering them up – he wanted to remove them permanently so families could move on and begin the healing process. Seeing the need for professional, permanent odor remediation, The Odors Guys business was formed!

“I believe people need us – they should not have to drive around, go camping, or live in odorous situations! I thought, there has to be a better way, so I found it!”

Bill’s years of dedication to fabricating the right equipment, and developing the right products and process to effectively treat odors, has paid off as The Odor Guys are now leading experts in odor elimination in the Northeast. His process is proven, and is fast and efficient, usually taking less than a day to rid areas of the toughest of odors – for good!

While Bill is used to working in challenging circumstances, he is happy to now offer permanent odor removal for everyday issues such as smelly vehicles, musty homes, and any areas needing freshening up. Bill is a Gorham, Maine native, and still a resident of the town where he enjoys his large yard and gardens, and is always developing better procedures in his workshop.
