I have mould starting to grow on my bathroom ceiling, in time this has made the paint start to buble & peel off so i cant just clean it & paint over as it will look like a map, i have tried nito morse to get the rest of the paint off but no luck, what else could i try i have thought maybe i should invest in a burner of something to get it off. i also know i need to treat the ceiling before re-painting i know to pva plaster before paint but have been told there is some rubber paint of some form i could paint on is this true? if so what is it & where could i get it from. thanks in advance Paula
See our project on bathroom ceiling mould. Then see our project on condensation. You really need some ventilation in the room to stop the condensation properly but you should remove all traces of mould first. When the ceiling is mould free it can be repainted with proprietary kitchen and bathroom paint which is available from our tool store and all DIY sheds. Take a look at http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/mo ... eiling.htm and it will solve the problem

Hi We now have a new project called bathroom ceiling mould and how to eradicate it. Go to the projects section of our webiste ( DIY PROJECTS) at http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/mo ... eiling.htm and you will see how to deal with this really common, but difficult problem.

Do not, under any circumstances, use damp seal without getting rid of the cause (spores) of the mould. This is dangerous advice as if the mould is sealed in with the damp sealer it will permeate through the ceiling. Simply eradicate the mould as suggested by looking at the project above and you will have no further problems.
