I have a contractor that just put in a new ceiling and painted a coat of primer before I could talk with him. It is clear to me that he did not wipe the walls down of loose plaster dust before priming. There is dust everywhere. Is this a big deal? Will the paint peel off?
I doubt the paint will peel off, but my concern would be how it will look. If there's dust in it, it will not look smooth.

It's definitely important to wipe off dust before priming or painting. I'm not sure how much of an effect it will have later on down the road, though. I would make sure to hire painters in the future that you can trust. Asking around for references is a good way to find a trustworthy company.
