In 08/16/12, I want to report this building with bedbugs. The whole previous comments of the tenants are complete truth about the treatment and the management doesn't take care to make solutions to this problem.


Hello,


Are you aware of a Mr. G. R.?


In August 2010 three apartments on my floor were treated for bedbugs, including my own. That is why I know for a fact about the $40 in quarters reserved to for the mezzanine laundry room on Thursdays. In reference to the $150 reimbursement for dry cleaning: They asked me to sign a "release" form that I release them of all liability. I refused to sign it and threatened to sue them in small claims court. They paid me as they did not want to waste time in court.

I actually treated my studio myse

lf by heating my room to 105 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours. Management would not accept my heat treatment and threatened to evict me if I didn't undergo their harsh chemical treatment, which was done three Thursdays in a row.

I just spoke to the laundry room attendent of the Times Square Hotel who has also lived here for over 30 years.

She has confirmed that on Thursdays when management of the Times Square Hotel closes down the mezzanine laundry room from 9 AM to 5 PM, then you can be sure that it is reserved for the tenants whose apartments they are treating for bedbugs.

Management has a policy that any tenant with bedbugs MUST either dry clean or wash every piece of fabric and/or clothing and/or jacket, coat

, etc. They even provide $40 in quarters for the laundry room and up to $150 for dry cleaning.

The laundry room attendent also confirms that almost every Thursday for many years now the laundry room is closed for the tenants receiving treatment for bedbugs.

Hi Garry Rissman! This is Dominique Marie Lebron!
Ouch! I got biten too!


Garry Rissman (who posted above) does not know what he's talking about.


This residential hotel, The Times Square, is over run with bed bugs. I, a tenant, believe this is due to the general incompetence and negligence of the management, Common Ground. The laundry room is shut down a minimum of once a week, usually more often, when they wash the possesions of people reporting bugs. Containing the spread appears unimportant to Common Ground. Treating infested rooms is just part of daily business; the pain and misery to tenants doesn't affect the managers.


On January 4th, 2007, the Times Square Director, Carolyn Chambre, told me during a meeting, which was digitally recorded, that they treated 9 apartments with bedbug infestations. Our building, the Times Square Hotel, has altogether 650 units. I believe Common Ground would be more effective by getting a bedbug service who uses specially trained dogs to find bedbugs. Also, the San Francisco department of Health recommends walk in freezers to put all the furniture in for over 24 hours to kill all b

edbugs and eggs.

Many tenants believe the bedbugs are brought into the building by Common Ground's Homeless Outreach program. Hundreds of homeless people use our lobby furniture and basement bathrooms during their visit to the Outreach offices in the basement. We believe this could be bringing bedbugs into the building.
