Default Thick Layer of Paint Peeling off plaster wall, possible mold behind?

Hi everyone,

I have a thick layer of paint peeling off the plaster wall in one of the bedrooms.

Also behind the some of the areas, I found what looks like mold.

1. Why is the paint peeling? Could it be water damage from the roof? This is on the 2nd floor, under the attic (no water in the attic. Roof it steep shingle roof.

2. Is this mold or dirt? check the attached pic

Mold can't grow in true plaster. Now, any old surface contamination or coatings, maybe.

Mold can grow on wood lathe and the paper coating on rock lathe.

Plaster is inorganic. No food for mold.

The mods are going to close this and direct you to the DIY forum. Ask in some different categories over there about the cause. roofing, carpentry, , drywall etc will have more answers. https://www.diychatroom.com/
