Peeling paint caused by damp? (UK) : HomeImprovement


Hi, hoping to get a bit of advice.

I’ve noticed some paint peeling away from the skirting boards along one wall of the house.

It’s mainly along the back wall of our ground floor toilet, to the left of the toilet (not happening behind the actually toilet) but also continues in the corner of the next room. All skirting boards were repainted about 2 years ago and this is the only area where it’s happening.

I cannot see any signs of water dripping around the toilet of nearby radiators. I’ve checked with my neighbour on that side and they haven’t had any issues in that area of the house. No recent changes made.

I’m guessing my next step will be to rip down the plasterboard (maybe up to 1m high on the back wall) and see if there is an obviously cause to be seen? Any other advice would be appreciated.
