Hoarding is the acquisition of large quantities of worthless junk items combined with the inability to discard them. This behavior may be associated with various psychiatric problems, but it is most commonly found in those with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). An estimated 700,000 to 1.4 million people in the USA are estimated to have compulsive hoarding syndrome (according to the International OCD Foundation). Since 1974, Gerrus Maintenance Inc. has been providing clutter removal and control services, squalor cleanup, disinfecting, odor remediation, organizing, and decluttering help to compulsive hoarders, their families, and the children of hoarders. Our service area includes all of New Jersey, Staten Island, New York, and Northeastern Pennsylvania. We have experienced, sensitive, discreet, professional specialists on our staff to assist with all tasks, such as heavy duty housecleaning of neglected premises or unsanitary hoarding clean up or legally-ordered emergency remediation.
Saver syndrome is a condition that leads to the collection of potentially desirable or useful items to a disabling extent. We provide experienced cleaning, sanitizing, deodorizing, indoor allergen removal, throw-out, repackaging, and organizational help for savers and their families.
Animal or pet hoarding is specialized hoarder behavior whereby numbers of household pets, domesticated barnyard animals, or non-domesticated animals are kept under squalid conditions that are unhealthy for both hoarder and animal, inhumane, unsanitary, odorous, and pose a health hazard to all those in the vicinity. Gerrus Maintenance Inc. is an organization that provides cleaning and organizing help for hoarders and much-needed assistance to their families. We have the expertise and cleanout experience to service any home with health hazardous conditions caused by animal waste accumulations characteristic of pet and animal hoarders. We are United States EPA RRP-certified.
Some of the symptoms of hoarding, such as indecisiveness, avoidance, and procrastination, can prevent anyone who is afflicted from being able to live in a clean, safe, sanitary, orderly indoor environment. Often, a family member, friend, or social worker must step in with some assistance. When that happens, call upon Gerrus. We will solve the problems associated with the buildup of junk, trash, food waste, garbage, bird and insect droppings, animal dander and other indoor allergens, human and animal urine or feces, and other problematic waste.
Ask the experienced, sensitive, competent, fully trained staff of Gerrus Maintenance Inc. for help.

Case Study: True Savings
We were asked to empty a neglected residence piled four-feet deep with trash. The owner had died, reportedly leaving a will written in a foreign language somewhere among the trash, probably on the back of a used postal envelope. We filled 10 dumpsters with garbage, sifting as we went. As impossible as it sounds, we found the will and other important documents on bits of scrap paper. During the process, we cleaned and deodorized the premises. We not only saved this neglected residence from the bulldozer, but also saved an inheritance for his heirs.
