My sorority is planning on painting our basement, however the basement walls are cover in horsehair that is crumbling off. I was wondering what we need to do in order to make the basement walls a surface that we can once again paint on. In addition, make sure by fixing the walls that we won't have to worry about a higher risk of leakage or loss of heat in the winter. Do we need to get all of the horsehair down and then caulk the holes that are left from were the horsehair was and then paint over that? What do we need to do?
