EDISON, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 06/28/11 -- Gerrus Maintenance, Inc. received an 'Outstanding Business of the Year' award at the 12th annual awards dinner of the Edison Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, June 14. Gerrus, which has been in business for nearly 40 years, is a leading provider of professional building maintenance services. The company supplies regular janitorial services for warehouses, factories, pharmaceutical labs, and office buildings, as well as heavy-duty residential clean-up, health hazard removal, mold removal, and emergency disaster remediation. The awards honored two businesses that 'have contributed to the well-being of the Township of Edison.'
A Scientific Approach
As CEO and Chief Chemical Engineer at Gerrus, founder Gerald R. Cohen offers engineering expertise that's rare in this field. The company has a reputation for solving problems that few others attempt, whether it's a stubborn odor or a stain that no one else can remove. By applying scientific concepts to clean-up problems, Cohen says that his firm always tries to 'solve problems at the source, not just treat the symptoms.'
Difficult cleaning problems can occur just as easily in residential settings. Gerrus Maintenance is often called in to handle estate clean-ups or homes where aging residents have been unable to maintain their property, sometimes for years. Ever the soul of discretion, Cohen avoids the words 'senior squalor' or 'hoarding,' preferring to refer to the company's services as 'environmentally-oriented cleaning.'
Gerrus' capabilities include industrial warehouse and plant maintenance, power sweeping and scrubbing, concrete floor sealing and coating; construction and job site cleanups; and fire, flood, and disaster remediation.
With an environmental division certified in mold and microbial remediation, allergen neutralization, and odor removal, the company can handle just about any natural or man-made clean-up need, says Cohen. 'Basically, I like a challenge.' The company offers its services throughout New Jersey, as well as in neighboring parts of metropolitan New York and Pennsylvania.
