Evening, we had a loft extension built in 2000 and the walls in the stairwell leading to it were boarded and skimmed over, I then papered the walls but now want to paint them.

I have just removed all the paper with a wall paper steamer and noticed that the walls were very slippery (obviously the paste) but once dry they are fine.

My question is, can I paint over the walls now or should I clean them down as much as possible to remove the old paste before painting with an emulsion paint?

Thanks In Advance Swamps :)
