Salts and paints to prevent mould coming through

Postby louise62 » Tue Nov 09, 2010 10:31 am


We have a problem with condensation in our front bedroom leading to mould. We are in the process of decorating: I have stripped off the wallpaper and treated the mould with a "special" cleaner and bleach.

My question is, is there a paint that will prevent the mould coming through, and is there something I can apply to the salt deposits coming through?

I would be most grateful for any advice.

you could apply a pva solution to the wall to prevent damp.
