The walls were lath and plaster which calls for a lot of hard work removing the walls, ceilings, etc. Old electrical wiring is also a concern for the mold remediation contractor. Plumbing is another factor to be considered. This type of building calls for careful removal of the mold infested areas so as not to cause damage to other walls, wiring, plumbing etc. that are not within the scope of the protocol. The material is fragile due to the age and the SERVPRO professional is always aware of this while using a lot of energy to remove old materials.
