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
Be careful with your 4 min. burning-in, which could cause some fogging in some areas of your print if the light was bounced off. Covering the areas of the paper that you're not touching may help eliminate the potential problems.

And keep all the shinny and reflective things away from the enlarger, such as the grain focuser (with a mirror), the plastic top for a filter box, and etc.
