hi i'm just having my house internal walls roughed and skimmed, would it pay dividents if i rented a de-dumidifying machine to dry the walls out quicker so i can crack on with painting them?

Hi ryandavies142, not may favourite piece of equipment but i'm a bit old school and like things to take there own course, but should not have any adverse effect on plaster.

do i need to lightly sand back the plaster before i start painting so it key's better? if so what grade sand paper should i use?

Sorry for late reply, been a busy soul.
No need to sand down plaster unless it's a bit untidy. Decent contractors base coat will be okay.
