I am having problems removing emulsion from walls I want to repaint. The reason I need to remove it is it is peeling off and is very stretchy in texture. Some of it has peeled off in foot long strips, but getting an edge by fingertip scratching has become very tedious and some bits are stubborn.
It is on newly plastered walls that were then sealed. It was the second layer of paint a couple of years later that seems to be the problem as the top half of the walls remain sound with the one and only original coat. It is as if the two different paints on the bottom (under border) have reacted with each other?
