BATHROOMS & KITCHEN-WALLS
Many kitchens and bathrooms have a condensation problem and paint failure
occurs due to frequent cycles of surface wetting and drying out. In the process,
flaking and mould infection is likely to occur. 
Condensation problems can often be brought under control by better ventilation. 
If emulsion paint was used earlier and the problem flaking and staining is
experienced a change over to oil-based paint is recommended having cleaned
the surface by scrapping and washing with clean water. 
Painting:
Ideal painting is with 2-3 coats of Chlorinated Rubber paint.

BATHROOM DOORS
Bathroom doors are subject to frequent wetting and require excellent water
resistance coatings to protect the woodwork. 
Painting:
3 coats of Chlorinated Rubber paint (1st coat to be applied after slightly thinning
down the paint). 
2-3 coats of Epoxy Clear Lacquer may also be used.

BATTERY STORAGE ROOMS 
Battery storage room and adjacent areas are subject to corrosive atmospheres
due to handling of various chemicals including mineral acids. This calls for highly
protective coatings. 
Surface preparation: 
Old painting must be sound & firm to get over-coated. A small area after
cleaning may be tested with a thin coat of chlorinated rubber paint. If unsound
this will be distorted. In that case the old paintings should be scrapped off and
cleaned to bare surface.
