I supose fogging also affects the sharpness when this is the case.

Can fogging acure sooner because the wall behind the enlarger is white (as is the ceiling) and I tent to use longer exposures (around 15 sec and up to 4 minutes when you add all burning.)

It's the only professional darkroom I know wich has white walls ceiling and floors.... They might have to ask lower subscriptions
Everything can be white in the darkroom... EXCEPT around the enlarger.

When you make big prints, you need to even be sure the ENLARGER post or chassis isn't a cause of flare.

Not to mention the longer time yuo're exposing the paper to a safelight !
