Default Wet elevator pit needs painting.

We were asked about painting an elevator pit, it is always wet, there is a sump pump in place. The issue they are having is mold and the smell of nasty still water. What could be used on this? What ever it is must be able to be put onto a wet surface and with stand sitting water. I have no clue if there is any thing on the market.

I think paint will only lead to more mess. If its cool and damp then paint won't dry or cure. The constant moisture needs to be addressed. Bigger sump, a fan, fix a leak, ect then you can clean and paint.

Even swimming pool paint needs a dry substrate before you paint. Good rule of thumb for paint to stick...

Clean
Dull
Dry
