If the old paint is not peeling or cracking, it is enough to wash the wall with water with a little detergent and wipe with a cloth soaked in cold water. If the wall is damaged, and there are holes on them, fill them with a smoothing mass. If the damage is bigger, make sure you consult a professional.
- Start from the ceiling
