Musty, smelly wall odour after painting

by Sophies2905 » Wed Jul 28, 2021 6:11 pm

help please!!!! we painted our kitchen with good home b&q paint and it smelt really musty/mouldy. We then painted over it with zinsser BIN and then 2 coats of dulux emulsion paint and the musty smell has come through again. There’s no damp in the walls as my brother in law is a surveyor and he’s checked so I’m only assuming it’s the original b&q paint which is giving off a smell but I would’ve thought the BIN would mask any odour. Any ideas on what we could do or if it’s a good idea to paint over it again?
