Concerned about how to dry out/preserve your historic building after flooding? Or whether or not a treasured family heirloom may be saved? Historic building materials – woodwork, plaster and lath - may often be dried and saved. Historic plaster is made with lime, which is mold and mildew-resistant, and often survives flooding – unlike drywall.
