Had the walls skimmed in april and finaly after a long wait decided to get the painters in to finish all the painting.

All the house has been done ok,EXCEPT 1 ROOM in the corner paint has blistered and peeled off,on that bit of the wall there was white furry stuff on the wall and the painter gave it a quick sand down then painted over it

first with watered down matt paint then pva-mixed in with acrylic eggshell but its peeled/blistered any ideas?

No damp problem that ive noticed
