How can I remove paint from wall plaster (indoors)? The wall has
been painted and there's mould on, and I think in, the paint which was
painted over the plaster, so I want to remove the paint but leave the
plaster on. The paint doesn't scrape off.
Well if the paint itself was mouldy it might slough off the plaster but
I suspect you have rot in the plaster too. Where is this problem and
what sort of vents does the place have. And are they plugged or still

There are anti-fungal pastes that will kill the mould and let you decorate
over them, leaving them in place to continue doing their job. They're
called "Wallpaper Pastes" and if you choose one that says "Anti-Fungal" on
the packet, it will contain anti-fungal chemicals. When they're pasted
directly on the wall, they kill the mould and seal the affected area ready
I'm not sure about that. It just means that the condensation/ventilation
problem was not fixed, so the mould grew back in the same place. If you
fix the ventilation issues, there won't be any condensation and the
mould will not grow.
Our house (newish barratt) grows black mould due to condensation if not
ventilated properly. Cooker hoods are wonderful things in kitchens for
resolving many condensation problems.
