Wondering what the best tool for the job would be? I tried using a very basic scraper but it was a bit tedious and slow. Is there any better options? The plaster itself is fine, and I've had it checked. There is no damp in the wall / plaster, I had that checked as well. The flaking paint was caused by a tumble dryer, which has since been relocated, but it's made a mess of my hall. Any help would be appreciated.
