Default Never seen this before

Hey guys, had to post on here to see if anyone had ever seen this before, this was sent from a home inspection, inspector says no moisture in attic. And this is only in living room, we don’t really know when it was painted other than whoever did the painting didn’t do a good job on any room. Any ideas? Surfectant leach?

Could be the result of slight unnoticeable condensation due to conditioned air in living space coming into contact with unconditioned air from exterior. It often happens in rooms where there’s entry doors to the exterior or if windows are open when a/c is on. It can even happen if there’s a shower or kitchen nearby due to steam. You likely wouldn’t notice it with a light color. If the attic is directly above, it could also be the result of condensation due to improper insulation or unconditioned air entering at recessed lighting. The coffers inhibit airflow as well, intensifying the condition. I’m on a project now with dark gray ceilings and the same condition is visible on the entry foyer ceiling running 6 feet out from entry door, on kitchen ceiling above stove, and on a common area ceiling adjoining a 1/2 bath with shower. This would be my guess.

The condensation issue I described in most instances is not due to a construction defect of any sorts. The condition was evidenced on two of our projects on wood ceilings finished with wax. The interior space was conditioned when finishing during the hot/humid summer. There was a lot of in and out construction traffic resulting in condensation on the ceilings causing the wax to blush/turn milky white, the finish recovering when the doors were shut. I've seen it happen with paint on ceilings as well.

Too hard to diagnose from a computer screen. Moisture related. either the product was thinned too much (my guess) or could be one of the other guesses already presented...good luck.
