ive been working on my basement in the works for a finshed one.the walls have multi layers of paint with mold in spots.i know i can bleach the mold but i need a cure.im planning on putting up 6mil vapor barrier then 2x4 studed walls and unfaced instalation and i have made my own water control system(pipe along footing to a sump pump)there will be a 5/8 gap along whole peremiter floor of basement so the studed walls would most likely be 5/8 from the basement wall.i dont want to put up these walls and have mold going behind them.is there something i can coat the walls with right over the paint?
Clean the walls with a mixture of liquid tsp, bleach, and water. Scrape and wire brush any loose paint off of the walls. Fill in any cracks or damaged mortar in the block. Then you can use a masonry breathable waterproofing product like SW Shercrete or a Loxon product from SW. They have a complete line of masonry waterproofers.
