Help! Paint Problems

We have cement block walls in our basement and can't keep paint on them. The paint bubbles up with powdery mold under it. Paid painters to redo wall after flood in basement from broken water pipe, now all of the paint is coming off again!

I'll have to do that, the problems is getting worse, even in rooms that weren't flooded.

You need to seal the concrete. There are products out there you can use. I don't know much about it myself, but it essentially waterproofing which can then be painted. You might check in your yellow pages for water damage contractors.
