If you can get all the paint off that will ideal. Then you should wash the walls with ammonia and water to clean them and then prime with an oil based stain killer such as Zinnser Cover Stain or SW ProBlock oil based stain killer and then topcoat with a latex topcoat. All your paint should be bought at a paint store and not a department or bog box store.

If all the paint does not come off it may still peel down the road but the oil based primer will help in it not peeling but will not penetrate through it and hold it down.

Hope this helps out.

The smoke residue made it impossible for the new paint to biond with the old. There is no way for another coat to penetrate through all this mess and still overcome the issue.

The walls should have been washed down with TSP to remove the smoke residue.

now, you are likely to need to sand things or use a citrus based remover, or both, before washing and rinsing to get to a clean surface before you begin the job.

Excellence is its own reward!
