Can this be used on wood paneling to seal in mold/mildew from water damage?

Can this be used on wood paneling to seal in mold/mildew from water damage?
Asked by: kpool
Hello kpool, Thank you for your interest in our products. Our product does have a mildew resistant that helps keep mold/mildew from growing on top of the coating. However, we recommend removing any mold/mildew that may be currently on the surface before applying our primer. Best regards, Kevin

Can this product be used to prime/seal galvanized metal?

I would like to paint a logo onto a sheet of galvanized metal. I want to keep the look of the galvanized metal behind the logo, yet I believe I need to "prime" the metal first so the paint will stick. Will this product all me to prime the metal for painting yet allow the look of galvanized metal to remain?
Asked by: goidaho
Hello and thank you for your question. For galvanized, we recommend you use KILZ Original or KILZ Complete primer. If you prefer a water based primer, KILZ Premium is another option. Hope this helps, and best of luck with your project!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eliminated the cat urine smell from the subflooring after we... Eliminated the cat urine smell from the subflooring after we removed carpet and pad. Mystery cat had marked multiple areas in our den and we used urine detector light to locate areas. Used entire can of Kilz Max Clear as directed. Two coats rolled onto subfloor with paint roller. Success!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kilz saved us a new floor Because of artistically placed furniture during our showing of this home we didn't see all of the nasty stains on the carpet until after the previous owner had moved. We had the carpets cleaned but realized too late that the stains and smell would not be resolved just with cleaning. We tore out the old carpet, but wouldn't you know it - the sub-floor had been fouled as well. Yuck. The carpet guys insisted that we would need to tear out the whole floor and install fresh wood, but we chose Kilz instead and blocked the odor completely with Kilz Max - which saved us the work and expense of replacing the floor. Yeah for Kilz! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from kilz protected my castle project I used kilz clear to coat a castle cutout that I made for my daughter. At first I applied the first coat a little too thick and it caused some noticeable runs. Once I went thinner on the first coat it came out smooth. Castle looks nice, glossy and professional and it's now protected for outdoor use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Done to the MAX Have used numerous KILZ products in my renovation business over the years but my favorite and most used is MAX. I could rant and rave for two or three pages but the bottom line is these products deliver and I have yet to find anything as robust and user friendly. If it makes my life easier them I'm on board. Thanks Kilz for being on my team. Regards, Don.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect primer I use kills primer every time I repaint the interior of my home. It has great coverage and works great as a base for all colors and brands. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried Max hoping for the same results of Original I'm in the middle of a whole house renovation (water damage that wasn't addressed for several years) and starting out using and liking Kilz Original. While the results of Kilz Original were everything I was hoping for, when Max came out, I tried one gallon because I'm not an oil based fan (hate going to work with paint spots and don't like using harsh chemicals to remove them)...the results were just as great but not having to "deal" with the extra work/mess of oil based sealer turned me into a Kilz Max fan. To me, the extra cost of Max is worth it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT WORK OR AHEAR TO SEMI GLOSS this product kilz maxc does not work on semi gloss paint that was sanded cleaned and all done correctly the product seemed to grip on the correctly prepped area but after a 24 hour dry time on the primer sealer then a coat of semi gloss and dry time of 24 hours the paint and primer in 80% of the area can be pealed off in strips on flat paint so far it looks ok I would never use this product again on a semi gloss redo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product Provides a Good Seal I purchased this product because of the features that were described in the product usage. I had a home that had water damage and after removing the damaged areas I wanted to make sure that no unseen mildew or mold spurs could resurface. So I applied this product on the existing subflooring & studs to provide a protective seal. The product goes on white and then dries clear.
