Hi Folks! The ceiling in our bathroom in the shower has started to buckle and bubble ( due to condensation via winter temp differences. probably), so I scraped off the peeling paint and discovered some minor mold and water damage to the drywall. As you can see, the ceiling is textured - it attracts mold in winter months in the texture crevasses that I have cleaned up with Clorox spray. Perhaps that's what promoted the peeling? NOW, I was planning to skim coat the textured walls and ceiling in the spring, ( to get rid of texture and have a clean, smooth finish) as I already did one wall successfully - skimmed coat with joint compound and painted high-quality bathroom paint no issues. So now I need to do 2 things: 1. repair the damage so we can use shower without further damaging drywall, and 2, remove the texture by skim coating as I did with one wall. With this in mind, I wanted to see if my plan makes sense: Right now, I'm running a dehumidifier and its drying out the stained area well. After 24 hr of dehumidifying, I was going to sand off most mold spots, ( use full-face respirator) then spray CONCROBUIM ( https://www.lowes.com/pd/Concrobium-32-oz-Liquid-Mold-Remover/50053503 ) on the area to prevent future mold issues, let that dry out , and then joint compound the area, dry, prime with ( 1-2-3 or Benjamin Moore Fresh Start primer? I have both) and paint a few times. This is my emergency repair plan so we can use shower. NOW, because I don't want to match the texture, but I want to get rid of it, and because the previous texture/paint bond failed either due to water or my Clorox use) my gut plan was to scrape the rest of the texture of the ENTIRE bathroom ceiling, ( a bigger weekend job) then joint compound skim/ prime and paint entire ceiling? VS JUST repairing that spot, and then JOINT COMPOUND SKIMMING OVER the rest of existing TEXTURE? For the walls, perhaps just a light sanding and Joint C. skimming will be fine since the walls don't get the condensation, but I did do a test SCRAPE TEXTURE OFF in a corner, and it did scrape SOME TEXTURE off, but if I don't need to do that, I would rather just Joint compound coat on top. The current WALL paint is slippery semigloss - Im thinking sanding lightly would give it enough tooth, but perhaps scrping off texture first, then sanding would be better. I was going to use this compound for repair and texture removal: https://www.lowes.com/pd/SHEETROCK-Brand-Easy-Sand-18-lb-Lightweight-Drywall-Joint-Compound/3009562 Does my emergency repair plan make sense? How would you handle the texture issue? many thanks in advance.
