Ceiling discoloration

Need to paint a ceiling in a house, but there is a discoloration problem. It is not mold. Found a few articles describing the problem as Brownian Motion. It is when particles in the air slow down when they come in contact with a cooler surface. The particles are usually smoke or some type of pollutant. The homeowner burns alot of candles, so there is the source. The affected areas are the ceiling rafters and where the interior walls contact the attic and outside wall. Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix this problem? If you need more info, let me know.
