    Hi, I had a new bathroom fitted 5 months ago, following a leak that went through the floor into the ceiling below.

    It was a total refurb, new flooring, new tiles etc. I have some tile, some fresh plaster, this has not been painted yet, as I can't decide on a colour.

    Every time I run the bath, the room stinks of damp. Asking the plumbers, they can think of no reason for this, I wondered if it might be the damp heat 'activating' the plaster as it's not painted? Or something more worrying?

    It smells like damp / damp dogs and is very strong.

    My little bathroom window is always open a crack!

    Thanks in advance,

    Im not sure about the smell but i can tell you its not a good idea to be using the bathroom without painting the plaster
