Customer Questions & Answers

Can Kilz Max be used on new drywall?

Instead of a PVA Primer? Im painting an interior remodel that has a mix of old and new drywall. The old drywall has nicotine stains and I would like to spray everything at once.
Asked by: Cascadian
Hello Cascadian, Great question. Yes, our Kilz Max would work well on drywall. Best regards, Kevin

Will kilz max seal pet urine odors on old hardwood floor ?

Asked by: otsumm
Hi otsumm, Our Kilz Max will seal difficult pet odors, however it was designed for subfloors only. If your hardwood floor isn't a subfloor, you may want to reach out to your local Home Depot for a similar product that would be suitable for your project. Good luck! - Sara

I am refinishing a house that has sever nicotine stains on the walls and ceilings. I will clean everything with TSP then plan to use kilz primer. Is Kilz Max the best one for this job? Can I add color to the Kilz Max primer so I just have to paint one coat?
Asked by: Chris
Hi Chris, Thanks for writing in! Yes, Kilz Max is a great choice since it's made to seal heavy stains. It can also be tinted. This will not guarantee one coat coverage for the paint, but it will minimize the number of top coats needed for full coverage. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

I am looking to cover old wood panelling, I have tried Kilz 2 and there is still color leaching through after 2 coats...

If I do an additional coat of Kilz Max, should the leaching be stopped? To prep I washed walls with a wet cloth and a tiny bit of Dawn dish soap and allowed them to thoroughly dry before painting.
Asked by: SMohr
Hi SMohr, Thanks for your question! Two coats of primer should be enough to seal the surface and prepare it for the top coat. I recommend testing a couple coats of paint in a small area. If the wood still shows through, a third coat of primer may be necessary; giving it extra time to dry will also help with sealing. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

MAX 5-gal. White Water-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 90.
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 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 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.]
