Hello shelly,
Thanks for your interest in our primer. No, this primer isn't designed to withstand the wear of vehicle traffic (or even foot traffic on floors).

Answer: 
I used it on a plywood under floor to kill pet odors before putting down new carpet. It worked very well, but I would read what it says on the can to see if it is meant to be used on concrete, I would think it would be stated on the can.

Answer: 
You can not just apply over grease. You do have to do some cleaning first. I will seal it cleaned but not like a coating of it. I would go to oil primer as well, safer bet. You will still need to clean it at least with TSP.

Answer: 
Hello and thanks for your question. Yes, Kilz Max is formulated to tackle tough stains including medium to heavy grease stains and more. Before application, please make sure surface is in proper condition and clean from the grease. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry.

Answer: 
Seriously consider NATURE’S MIRACLE® Scented Stain and Odor Removers. Instead of covering the odor it removes it entirely. I do not work for the company, but have used it for years. The stuff is a bit expensive and can be found in pet stores.

Answer: 
Odor blocking primers can't and will never truly get rid of a smell unless the source of that odor is neutralized.
WIth that said, you can certainly try to prime ONLY after cleaning and disinfecting the areas affected by the pet stains.
Once that is done, apply the primer and see what happens.

Hi BobJax,
Thanks for your question. We don't recommend applying Kilz Max on top of wallpaper adhesive. If you're unable to remove the adhesive though, you may want to use an oil-based primer instead, like our Kilz Original, which can be viewed here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/KILZ-ORIGINAL-1-gal-White-Oil-Based-Interior-Primer-Sealer-and-Stain-Blocker-10901/100371321.

I don't know any reason that it wouldn't work over the glue. I just applied it to old plywood flooring that had some small areas of carpet padding and glue from laying the previous padding and it worked just fine. Covered stains and odors extremely well.

MAX 1-gal. White Water-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive. I bought a 50-year-old house and was working to restore a basement utility room that had been used as a kitchen by a past owner. It was bad - my daughter called it a "murder scene". The walls were plaster over cinder block with many coats of unknown type paints. After some cleaning and light sanding with 220 grit paper, I was going to use a shellac-based primer. No windows in this room and minimal ventilation, so I wasn't looking forward to it. Then I ran across this stuff. It went on easy and covered all of the stains, marks and splatters that were on the walls. In one coat. I don't give away five stars easily, but this stuff is worth it.

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 Best product ever! I used this to seal old pet stains on subfloor before installing hardwood floors. This does such a great job of sealing everything in. There isn't any hint of the old pet stains at all! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pet odors be gone!! We recently purchased a used home where, without our knowledge, animals controlled the entire home & used it as their personal litter box. Once we finally pulled all the carpet and pad, we could see that we needed to block this before new "anything" could be installed. Enter: 5 gallons of KILZ MAX!!! One coat down and all these worries were gone! We have new carpet and can actually lay down on it and not be reminded of why we do! Thank you Kilz!!!! This product is legit!!!

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 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 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.]
