For these five years I've lived in a 1939 co-op cinderblock rowhouse, c. 1,000 sq. feet; the interior is plaster and the paint is coming off in sheets. Does anyone have advice as to the success of scraping, mudding, sanding all areas and then priming and painting with mold/mildew-resistant paint?

I live in Maryland and there's only one (useless) wall-through a.c., though I run fans in every room. I am loathe to shut up the house and run a dehumidifier but I just got one.

I would greatly appreciate your experience and perspective with this approach to "remediation." Or any other points I should consider. Without complicating this post too much, I'll stop here and hope to have some comments.

With thanks,
Wendy

Remediation is a very complex, scientific process that requires an expert to consult with. These are questions that I am not qualified to answer.

Try contacting a remediation expert at our sister Mold Help, www.mold-help.com for Mold Help approved experts. Remediation requires proper containment, scientific testing, and proper attire. If this is not done, it could result in a disaster.

Be careful what you do.

Cheers,
Susan

There is water coming in from someplace, that has to be found and stopped first...
