(I did not use Crown paint before you try and direct me to this post, interesting as it is.)
I have recently moved into a bungalow in which I have just decorated the Kids bedroom.
This involved removing wall paper v.hard work. I sealed the walls with PVA/water mix. Added a Polycell Base coat (to cover strong colours) and then 2 coats of Dulux emulsion. Admittedly the emulsion could have been upto 4/5 years old.
The room now smells sort of damp. But the smell seems to eminating from the painted walls.
Before we stripped the paper we had a damp inspection which revealed no more than possible condensation. We have had the windows open pretty much since the room was decorated (except overnight) and everymorning the smell is there, open the window let some air circulate and it goes away, except if you smell the wall a faint aroma.
Is it possible that in stripping the wall paper the walls got oversoaked, and now cannot dry out as I sealed and overpainted them? There are no visible problems with the walls. i.e. flaking/cracking/staining. And the wall paper we removed did not show signs of being damp being that it was extremely well attached.
Anyone any ideas. I think I will try washing with milton I saw that in the 'crown' thread anyone know if that works.
