You can repair the torn areas. Sand smooth as possible with 120 grit sandpaper. Seal the areas with Gardz from Zinsser. Smooth out with a couple coats of joint compound. After final sanding of patches, make sure wall is free of dust and seal areas again with Gardz. Then prime the walls with a suitable primer and paint.
