Answer: 
The best way I've found to kill mold and stay healthy, is to use equal parts white vinegar and hydrogen peroxide and spay it on the mold. This is safe, non-toxic and effective! This mixture kills the mold by changing the ph environment that they need to thrive on. Its much more effective and safer than using bleach!

Answer: 
First, I'd take care of the moisture problem that caused the mold, then kill the mold with a spray-on bleach product and allow it all to dry. Never paint over wet or moist areas--never! Molds, fungus and mildew reproduce using spores that can survive anything but bleach.

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for your inquiry. If your walls have mold, we suggest treatment to remove the mold completely first before you prime. Once the surface is mold-free and fully dried, we suggest either KILZ 2 or KILZ Premium to prime. Both of these products have a mildew-resistant finish. Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

Answer: 
The surface needs to be clean and free of all mold and mildew – cleaner with bleach or some other mold/mildew-killing chemical. This can then be applied to the surface to seal it. Go to solutions.kil.com for more info.

Answer: 
Primers should not be used as a top coat. We recommend that you apply a topcoat after you use a primer. The purpose of a primer is to give a good base for the top coat. If a primer is left on the surface without a topcoat it can yellow and chalk over time. Also, if a primer is not re-coated after a few weeks, you might experience issues such as poor adhesion and peeling when you decide to repaint. It is Read More

Answer: 
Hello Kat,
We appreciate your question. No, sanding would be needed to remove the gloss of the shellac or varnish. We recommend a 220 grit for this purpose, though a grit as low as 120 could be used as long as it doesn't remove the existing finish. Then, please clean the surface with a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Well wishes for your project!

Answer: 
Your best results are going to come if you sand the table, because sanding will eliminate any surface film of dirt, oil, or grease, and together with a rougher surface,, you'll get better adhesion on the primer. So if sanding is out of the question, at least thoroughly clean the table with TSP, or better yet use a deglossing product.

ORIGINAL 1-gal. White Oil-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 348.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps get you through "empty nest syndrome"... We never expected our adult child to move back home, but when she left the second time, with her two cats, she left quite the mess. After ripping up the carpets, we discovered a whole world of stink! Since replacing the wood was out of our budget, I resorted to painting the base with Kilz before adding the new flooring, and the room has been smell free since! Easy to apply and completely blocked the odors. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product saved us thou$and$!! This past spring, we bought a house that has one inch thick white oak floors throughout. The old lady who lived here hadn't let her dogs outside for decades. With the humidity and heat of warm weather, the pet stains were seeping up like tar and the stench was unbearable. The floors were almost solid black! Neighbors could smell the house from the sidewalk. We used 2 coats of Kilz Original oil based primer to seal the wood floors before laying vinyl plank flooring over it. There's no odor evidence of the years of damage either! Replacing the wood floors would have cost thousands of dollars. I wish I could attach pictures so you could see the before and after! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blocks everything Excellent coverage! We are a commercial and residential contracting company that offers full service remodels. We use Killz on every project hands down. Blocks everything and gives you a great base to start from. From Fire, Pet deposits that still linger, water damage, old oil base stains etc etc. it blocks it all. If you want something to go away. KILLZ IT!!!! Interior or exterior. This is the product this professional has used. 15 years. It doesn't fail. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covering old wood paneling Our old home came complete with wood paneling and all the smells you would expect after enduring 36 years of chain-smoking. We wanted to preserve the charm without keeping the smell of dated smokey wood. Original Kilz primer was exactly what we needed. It not only hid the stench, but it also hid all the wood grain and knots in the pine paneling. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Purchased as a last resort after multiple cleanings of concrete floor in the basement attempting to remove animal urine smell left when tenants moved out. After months of trying to get rid of the smell it's finally gone. This was recommended by flooring professionals prior to having carpet and padding replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get the job done We just bought our new home and instead of being excited and thrilled, I was so stressed and disgusted with the smell of the house. The previous owners had apparently numerous cats which they allowed to urinate just about anywhere and everywhere! So the house stunk! I did a research on the computer for a solution to get rid of the smell and not just cover it up with new carpet. People swore by KILZ original and so I had to try it, secretly I was crossing my fingers because I thought no way would we ever rid the smell and I'd probably have to live in the backyard! We ripped out the carpet, pulled nails and staples and padding. The smell was unbearable! I then cleaned the floors and we had to even replace some subfloors because no way they could be saved. I cleaned the floors with a clorox solution, sanded the floor and started painting the subfloors with Kilz. A month later and no smell! I'm SO GRATEFUL for Kilz and it really does WORK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eliminates pet urine smell! Do you have a problem with pets that have urinated in your house, or have you bought a house that has a strong pet urine smell? You will quickly find that no matter what products you use to clean the carpets, you will not be able to get rid of that smell. Having gone through this at a number of homes, I have found the solution! You must remove the carpet and padding and use KILZ Original Primer, OIL-BASED to seal the under layment. It MUST be OIL-BASED KILZ! Nothing else will do the job that you need it to do. I have done this at a number of homes, and can guarantee that it removes the pet urine smell like nothing else will, except replacing the under layment itself. Kilz Original oil-based primer is easy to use, buy some cheap rollers with thick pile, and roll this stuff out. One coat may be enough, but just to be safe, I have always done a double coat. Be aware that because the primer is oil-based, it does have a strong smell when it is wet and freshly dry. The smell from the oil-based primer quickly dissipates. Once the primer is dry, lay down new padding and carpet, or do what I did and put down laminate wood flooring. Like me, you will forever be grateful for Kilz Original Oil-Based Primer!
