Expert Answer:

Balanced equations for steps involved in white washing walls:
 
Calcium hydroxide is used for white washing of walls.
 
Calcium oxide combines with water to formed calcium hydroxide.
 
CaO + H2O → Ca(OH)2 
 
This calcium hydroxide combines with carbondioxide in air to form layer of calcium carbonate on the walls.
 
Ca(OH)2 + CO2 → CaCO3 + H2O
