Decorating bathroom - how do I seal the walls?

Postby inch high » Sun Oct 26, 2008 8:20 pm


I was supposed to be getting a new bathroom fitted but with the old credit crunch its been put on hold. Instead I will just tidy it up a bit for now.

Its already tiles half way up and then wallpaper from then on. trouble is, mould collects all the time so I have two questions...

1) After taking the wallpaper off, what can I use to seal the wall to stop moisture getting in?

2) After putting new wallpaper in, what can I use to seal the wallpaper to stop mould forming and make it wipeable? (is wipeable a word?)

Would the answer to both of these be PVA/water?
