Damp bathroom wall around window

Postby Tinga » Fri Dec 21, 2007 3:22 pm

I have a small patch of damp appearing around my bathroom window. I live in a 1st floor flat and don't have central heating so understand this is due to condensation.

I leave the window vents open all the time, open the windows after showering and put on the extractor fan and towel rail to warm the bathroom but as my partner and i shower everyday each we have alot of condensation.

My main concern is trying to reduce it but i would also like to paint over it. Can i do this? I have heard of damp proof paint but i don't want to just paint straight over it in case i make it worse.

Thanks :)
