We're in Randgate, Randfontein, at the home of Paul and Lola Bester. The Besters are having an interesting paint problem with the walls and ceiling of their master bedroom: the ceiling is covered in fungi, while the walls have a damp problem.

Solution:
The ventilation vents in the exterior walls between the wooden floor and the soil, as well as the air vent just below the ceiling, will need to be opened. As for the walls, the plaster will be rectified with moisture-tolerant Neucrete. The ceiling, together with the walls, will then be treated with ProGold Fungal Wash to kill and remove the fungal spores. Once all the surfaces have been treated, priming will be done, followed by the use of Prominent Microbarr to complete the application.

Painting tip:
Masking tape is a man's best friend if you can't cut straight, but be careful when applying masking tape to newly painted surface - the paint may look and feel dry, but may not always have cured through. Removing the masking tape under such conditions may result in the lifting off of the paint.
