Tiny Holes in Plaster

Postby emmasarahjane » Mon Mar 29, 2010 11:34 am

Hello, I have recently brought a house and have removed all the wallpaper in the lounge. After removing it all i have found lots of tiny holes in the plaster work. Some of these holes look like nail holes from where pictures may have been hung up but in some areas there are too many and too small holes for this to be the same reason. I am worried that the wall may be infested with something or if this is a normal thing to find on a 70 year old house. I wondered if anyone had any ideas one what can be done or who i can call in to have a look at this problem !

Any help would be much appriciated

Most likely that the wall has been used as a pin board.
Fill the holes rub down and paint.
