Do not assume that anyone has any liability for anything or that you would be able to collect or recover any additional expense.

Do your research beforehand and inspect the work in progress.

Ask questions of the shop as things progress ... be satisfied before things are buttoned up.

The basics for mold remediation and wall repair are very similar to what is done in a house. Lots of info is available.

BTW, your floor is probably damaged in the area to the left of your feet while seated. Make sure you have about 2X the money available just in case ... you will have no choice once the project reveals the actual damage.

Been there done that.. Big pain but its all better now. My 99 Bounder has steel wall supports with Styrofoam insulation in between. The interior luan was glued to the foam so lots of scraping and then re-glued the new beadboard to the styrofoam.
