Painting in Dusty House and PVA Suggested for Walls?

Postby ElsKJanes » Wed Jul 05, 2017 9:00 am

We've recently had a lot of renovation works done in the house and there is a lot of dust in the air. We will of course wait a while for it to settle but our builder has advised us to paint the walls with a PVA mixture before painting to lock down some of the dust. There are a few newly plastered walls but also many which are not new plaster. Is this a good idea? I have read that the PVA can make the paint peel off afterwards.
Any advice greatly received. Thanks
