If the person whose duty it is to preserve or protect any wall or structure from injury fails to do so after having received the notice required under Section 1434.05, and an additional notice of forty-eight hours from the Division of Building and Zoning Inspection to do so, then the Superintendent of Building and Zoning Inspection may enter upon the premises, employ such labor, furnish such material, and take such steps, as may, in his or her judgment, be necessary to make the same safe and secure or to prevent it from becoming unsafe or dangerous, at the expense of the person whose duty it is to keep the same safe and secure. Any party doing the work, or any part thereof, under and by the direction of the Superintendent, may bring and maintain an action against the person whose duty it is to perform such work, to recover the value of the work done and materials furnished in and about the premises, in the same manner as if he or she had been employed to do the work by the person.
