Hi there folks,
Just to give a brief on what's going on here. I currently live in a basement flat which is more damp than it is home at the moment. Obviously this being a basement I'd expect such, and there's a few mouldy patches forming in corners which I think are just caused by inadequate air circulation.
The thing I'm posting about is that a number of the interior walls (Right in the centre of the property) seem to be experiencing damp issues from the ground to about 50cm up. The paint is coming off of the walls, there's fluffy white deposits on the surfaces too. I believe this was caused by a leak in the flat above, which we were unaware of until one day it literally started dripping onto the bed. The leak was fixed about 6 months ago, when we and the neighbours became aware of it. Upon inspection the walls themselves have dried out completely.
The plasterboard on the walls seems to be fine, it's dry, I see no damp or mould patches on it, it's just the paint on the surface that seems to be affected.
My question is am I likely to need to replaster these areas anyway, or will just replacing the paint suffice?
