mold / mildew needs to be power-washed from beinecke library to preserve structure
Is that mold or residue from the marble?
It's not that easy. You can't just send a maintenance guy out there with a home depot power washer. You are talking about a complicated and costly cleaning and restoration of a high profile building in the center of campus. To clean the building correctly (because a power washer probably will cause more problems than it solves) will cost upwards of $100,000. It probably doesn't make economic sense yet, though I'm sure the decision makers on campus are aware of the issue.
It looks like mold and probably is if it faces north.
It's the north side, and it's something that could stain the marble if left on for too long. I'm sure the university will take care of it. It's not more complicated than just power-washing it.

Remarkably quick response. is that scaffolding for Beinecke or a surrounding building?
This is an old request. In an effort to effectively address current issues we are closing this one.
If this issue is reoccurring please create a new issue.
