We bought an old house several years ago, and repainted the master bathroom. The humidity in that bathroom has already destroyed the paint, and it is molding as well as peeling. I would like to remove all of the old paint from the plaster (since it has mold in it) before refinishing, but can't figure out what to use. Can I use ';Zip Strip'; on old plaster walls? I would like the job to go as quickly as possible! Thanks!What is the best way to remove peeling paint from old plaster walls?
The best and quickest way is probably to rent a sand blaster. Is it going to be the easiest or the cleanest? Not by a long shot. But you will be removing a lot of the mold along with the paint. Your probably going to need to get a professional to remove all the mold. I would highly recommend a professional breathing apparatus that is rated for mold as well. You can get into some serious health issues when dealing with Mold.
