No amount of hacking off and re plastering is going to fix that. It's Victorian which means it should be dry as they knew what they were doing when building.
Wooden floors should be ventilated by air bricks or metal grills. Usually front and back of property but not always. Check these haven't...
New builds, a few days. A few weeks then to do it properly.... Lol
