    My utility room is single skin brick then it has that plasterboard with foam behind it inside. In the corners the paint has flaked off and cracked and we had mould at one point. We moved the fridge off the wall a bit and we havent had mould since. We are decorating the room and ive come across anti condensation paint. We have the dryer in there as well which obviously creates heat and moisture. Would anti condensation paint be a good product to use to stop the paint flaking? Also can you paint over anti condensation paint and it still do what its suppose to?

    An air brick or extractor with a humidistat might be a good move.

    It's a condensing dryer. We usually leave the kitchen door open and open the kitchen window when the dryers on. I consider putting a vent in but the sides are double skin plus the noise from outside etc. Its been a year and we havent had any mould in there

    I'd use bathroom paint. The anti condensation paint is useless
