Painting & Decorating Question

Which natural mould resistant paint for bedroom?

My wife and I are moving and considering painting our son's and our own bedroom in the new home. We would like VOC free color paint (we have allergies) that also help keeping damp away because we had problems with mould in the past and want to do everything that helps avoid it. There seem to be several products available, but it is difficult to get an idea of which are actually good/right. Ideally, they should also be relatively easily available. We expect the price to be higher than regular paint as long as it's not extraordinarily so (e.g. £100 for 1l). Any suggestions are very much appreciated!

Hi there you can use undercoat first if didn't work try with zinsser stain block (not a spray use a paint). I used stain block before and I can recommend it to you. Click here
