bathrooms


I have semi-gloss paint on my bathroom ceiling and I think it's causing my walls to sweat. And now I'm starting to see mold. We have a window in the bathroom. We just painted with this semi-gloss on the ceiling. Walls never sweat before. How do I remove the semi-gloss paint?

Turn on a fan--the humidity from the paint drying is causing the problem--

If the paint is dry then the wall sweating has nothing to do with the ceiling

Any chance the bathroom fan just happens to no longer be working?

Install a fan!
The paint needs time to cure (few weeks), before it will stand up to moisture properly, and constant showers are going to slow that down. Is it a water-based bathroom paint? This is the most mold resistant. The paint itself is not causing sweat; the semi-gloss is providing a good seal against moisture in the wall. Before it probably just absorbed into the wall (which is worse for mold!)
