You have a leak - that's what causes moist drywall in virtually all cases. The rust is presumably coming from drywall nails/screws or other nails or steel/iron in the wall. Without fixing the leak first, no repair will last. Once you get the leak fixed you can coat the wall with a "stain-blocking primer" (often shellac based) to stop the rust stains from ...

What eventually helped (or maybe it was a combination of factors) after trying pretty much everything from this article was 3 or 4 rounds with Affresh. (You can buy it almost anywhere, like Walgreens, Home Depot etc.) It looks like the mold on the outside was only a part of the problem and the real one (And the source of smell) was probably inside.

You are paying a premium for what you want. Businesses can and do charge more for doing jobs they don't want to do, to do them differently than they would typically do, or to work with someone they see as difficult. At the same time, no one is forcing you to do any of this. If you want someone else to do the work, get multiple bids and take the one you ...
