Authorized officers shall be permitted to make an inspection to enforce any of the provisions of this title or any other applicable statute or ordinance, and may enter any building or may enter upon any premises during regular business hours; or, if there are not regular business hours, the officers or their authorized representative shall first make a reasonable effort to locate the owner or other persons having charge or control of the building or premises and request entry.
