Dear Venetia Owners & Residents,
We are happy to inform you that the building’s air conditioning has been restored as of 6PM this afternoon, Tuesday, September 11, 2012. It will take several hours to cool the building.
Below are additional details & updates:
- The City officials have reviewed the electrical system and approved the proposed repairs. Based on the scope of work for the repairs, the city has allowed the AC system to be activated and restored. The building and all units should be cooler within several hours.
- In order to ensure proper activation of your AC system, anytime after 6:30PM this evening, please reset your AC by turning it off for five minutes and then turning it back on. This will reset the system and cool air should begin to flow.
- Management and Security conducted another door to door inspection of all units, entering units where it was possible, to make sure everyone was safe and that no one was overlooked during this crisis.
- Round the Clock Mitigation and Restoration continued the mitigation process in the hallways of the 11th and 10th floors. All affected units have had blowers and dehumidifiers installed to assure proper drying and mold prevention. Baseboards and damaged drywall were removed and blower fans and dehumidifiers continue to run around the clock on the affected floors. Mold and moisture tests have been conducted throughout the building, particularly on floors 10 and 11. Moisture levels are low and there are no traces of mold. Remediation will continue on the 9th floor to eliminate any remaining moisture.
- The pending repairs to the electrical system have been scheduled for Thursday, September 13, 2012. These repairs will require the building’s electricity to be shut down for approximately 4 to 6 hours. The building will operate on emergency back-up generator power during these repairs. The building will have limited power for elevators and water and emergency lighting only. There will be no air conditioning during these repairs, please plan accordingly.
- We will have additional details on how to handle insurance claims in our Wednesday update.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
