Window Washing Update

Posted By on May 8, 2023

The Element HOA Board of Directors know that many, if not all of you, are wondering what the status of window washing and other exterior maintenance at Element is. As some of you may know, the Association was ordered to cease any such activities by Cal-OSHA until such time as the rooftop equipment could be brought into compliance with current regulations.

Due to fundamental flaws in the system as originally constructed, the current system is unable to be used to safely wash a sufficient portion of the windows at Element. In anticipation of the question we have already been asked, it is unlikely that Cal-OSHA will approve window washing of only a portion of our building until there is at least a plan and means identified to safely wash the entire building.

The Board of Directors has contracted with Olympique Façade Access, who is currently working on the design of a new system that will allow us to wash the windows in compliance with Cal-OSHA. Once the design is approved, The Board of Directors will then go out to bid with a Cal-OSHA approved installation company to complete the work. We can assure you that everything that can be done to expedite this process is being done with all due speed. If you have questions about this situation, please forward them to

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we complete this necessary work.
