Stains caused by water will leave a tide mark and after drying, the paint around the stain can be removed and the surface repainted. If the surface may become damp again, remove the source of the water or paint with chlorinated rubber or a hard varnish. Patches of soot or smoke should be removed before coating. Use of an insulating paint before the final coat can help. Nicotine should be removed with an alkaline cleaner (bleach) before coating. Remember to wash off all the alkali before attempting to paint.
