The following are some common causes of the violation. 

Improper Bathroom Venting

Improper bathroom venting is one of the most common causes of the violation. This system is designed to exhaust moist air to the home’s exterior.  The exhaust fan should go to the outside through the roof of the house otherwise it may cause a violation. Improper venting can lead to mold growth and rotted wood. It also causes a high level of humidity and corrosion of metal. Furthermore, it is necessary to use new fans in this method, because old fans create noise which is not good for the public. The ventilation system should be installed properly in all bathrooms. It is very important to hire professionals to avoid any violations.

Misplaced smoke detectors

According to the rules of DOB, there should be a smoke detector outside of each bedroom and on each level of the house. Each alarm should be in proper working condition with a good battery backup. These kinds of alarms are able to quickly detect fires and smokes. It is strongly recommended using alarms in a home in New York City for safety purposes. Furthermore, you can install an alarm in the halls and storage areas as well. Furthermore, it is necessary to check and clean alarms at least once a month.
