We have an interior 2nd floor bathroom that had wallpaper.
We steamed the wallpaper off, patched the pulled wallboard areas with joint
There were no signs of mold, water spots, leaks, soft material, etc.
Then primed with Zinsser Bulls Eye 123.
After the primer, we used Zinsser Perma White bathroom paint.
This was back in Feb.. it is now May.
There appears to be something weird in this room that we can't determine....
A random very strong "chemical" smell that appears for several hours or
days, then goes away.
It's not a paint smell, or a methane/bathroom odor, but more like
I've looked in the attic, and no roof leaks, no dead animals or droppings,
1 - primer or bath paint "go bad" ?
2 - any kind of interractions ?
3 - any other thoughts that we can chase...
The other thing - need to clean out the clogged cutters,
as they tend to collect a years worth of rotting leaves, twigs.
Not sure how that might be involved or not.
Also - the strong odor appears maybe 2 days after a rain downpour.
But again, don't see any water marks in the attic or around the areas.
Have even removed the bathroom vent bezel and put plastic up to block
I'm stumped !!
