Mold on bathroom walls question

 
 
Reply Wed 6 Aug, 2014 02:29 am
I'd prefer to paint my bathroom walls with a pearl sheen paint rather than semi-gloss. The walls are lath and plaster. If mold develops from the room's moisture, will it first appear on the surface of the walls? Or could it just start growing
inside the walls without my knowing it? Thanks!

Whatever you choose, be sure to use paint made especially for bathrooms. Ask the staff at the paint store.

The source of the moisture is the most important thing. A good bathroom fan will take up the steam from a shower that might otherwise collect on the walls.

If you have moisture BEHIND the wall, then that's another story.

@Jacquelynn,
Keep your bathroom dry. If possible separate your toilet and bathroom. Get your sewage checked thoroughly. Basic reason of mold is the problem in sewage system.

@Kathleenortan,
Thanks, everyone!

So if I don't see mold growing on the walls -- and assuming there's no
leak or source of water inside the walls -- does that mean it's not growing
inside the walls? Which paint sheen do you use?

Thanks.
