Customer Questions & Answers

Can we use this on the garage floor?

The lady we bought our house from smoked in the garage. What can I use on the floor?
Asked by: shelly
No, there are specific products for your issue. Go in and get someone in the paint department to show you them. They will work much better, especially on concrete.

Max over wall that has wallpaper glue

Removed wallpaper; glue laborious to remove. Can Max be used over wall that has wallpaper glue? Thanks!
Asked by: BobJax
I wouldn't use it over glue of any kind. Prep work is essential. You need to strip off the glue.

MAX 1-gal. White Water-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best latex primer I've ever used I used kilz max on a customers house recently. They had a grease fire in the kitchen so the ceilings and walls were heavily covered with smoke damage. I sprayed two coats of kilz max on ceilings and walls. The product covered so well I could have just left the ceilings with no top coat. I recommend this product to pros and home owners. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved the day-dead animal in wall smell... Kilz Max saved us. I noticed an odor around our linen closet but with teenage boys in the house....A few days later I had to put clean towels away and open the door and the smell hot me. Dead something. So I donned a facemask and rubber gloves and pulled everything out (a 6' wide x 30" deep closet packed pull) to find whatever had died. There was nothing dead. But the closet smelled worse empty. DH went into the attic and found a raccoon decaying between the wall studs benind the closet, about 4 feet down and no way to get it out (it would have fallen apart anyhow) The only thing we could do was wait for it to stop stinking, but ugh! THe smell was seeping into the wall beind the closet. Did I mention my parents were going to be visisting for a week the following week? So I bought sone Kilz Max, opened up all the windows and gave the inside of the closet 2 coats of Kilz Max. The Kilz Max did the trick, no more dead animal smell. Of course I had wash everything that came out of the closet- 12 loads in all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money Saver We were remodeling the laundry room and bathroom. We found enough drywall at a bargain price, because supposedly a worker spilled coffee on it. Really, they laid out 30 pieces of drywall and spilled coffee on every single piece? Suspicious to say the least. The price was too good to pass up, or so we thought. We purchased it all. The only downside, after priming the drywall, every single "coffee" stain could be seen. Not wanting to accept spotted walls, I bought KILZ MAX primer. I redid it all. Darn I wish I would have done that the first time. It works. Every single spot was gone. No bleed through. We saved a small fortune on the drywall, even with purchasing the great KILZ MAX primer we saved time and money. Lesson learned, I will continue to use KILZ with all my painting projects.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covered smoke smell We purchased a home that had 40 years of smoke on the walls. We needed a primer that would cover the smoke smell after we TSP washed the walls. The smell was quite intense in the home. In one of the rooms, we used the Kilz 2 thinking it did a good job and after we painted over it, within a week we could smell the smoke again. Especially in the summer heat. We went back to the Max to take care of the smoke. It did a very good job on the first round. I would recommend it for any house trying to cover many years of smoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covering up BAD...seriously BAD pet odor We recently bought an old farmhouse with the intent to renovate room by room over time...the previous owner had several animals who apparently liked to use the carpeted living room rather than go outside :/ we removed the carpet and pad before even moving in. While that helped it still smelled, I tried everything...baking soda and vinegar...scrubbing with soap and water..every DIY remedy online.....even straight up bleach scrubbed into the subfloor nothing worked! I have used kilz regular primer before and knew the coverage was unbeatable so I found the kilz maxx odor blocker which of course was the highest price can but it was worth it! Rolled 2 coats on the subfloor smell was gone and hasn't returned! I'm a kilz believer for life! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Cabinets As a painter, I have painted several sets of cabinets. As there seems to be a trend of painting previously stained cabinets, I needed a good primer to keep the stain from bleeding through and to avoid the time of sanding. This product is easy to brush, roll, or spray. I recommend this product on a regular basis. The only primer I use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
