Answer: 
Oil based primers resist shrinkage over time. Latex is best using for quicker drying time. yes you can put an oil based primer on, but you need to prime it first. And I highly recommend sanding the oil down for better adhesion/durability

Answer: 
Hi help,
Kilz works very well, however you may need two coats of paint
if you are going to a very light color.
Try the Kilz and one coat of paint and see how it goes.
You can always apply a second coat of paint if necessary.
Mike,

Oil or Water Based

This question is from ORIGINAL 1-gal. White Low-VOC Oil-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker
Asked by
Houston, TX

February 21, 2016
I recently purchased a house from a lady who had two cats and also smoked. Do I go with an oil-based or water-based primer on the drywall? What about the trim? The cats urinated in lots of places, so I'm not sure if it makes sense to do parts of the concrete floor (already ripped out the carpet and old hardwoods).

I know that the primer on this page is oil based. That was not my question. I noticed HD sells an oil-based Killz and a white water-based version. I was seeking clarification on which I should use given my situation.

December 21, 2015
Per the question, I'll be sealing a 6 foot by 6 foot area on my bare plywood floor with the oil based Killz, a cat decided to urinate in a couple of spots so there are some nasty odors, so it needs to be sealed prior to putting down the new hardwood. So I'm wondering how long I need to wait before I can safely sleep in the room?

This fumes from this stuff are pretty strong. I painted a small bathroom with the window open and I was fine. I wasn't living in the apartment at the time but I would wait about 4 hours assuming you can air out the room.

KILZ Original is designed as quick dry product and can be re-coated with a second coat of primer or the paint topcoat in one hour. However, we recommend you provide 2-4 hours if possible to allow the primer to dry. As for the time to move back in due to odors from the oil-based primer, this should dissipate within a few hours of application if the space is properly ventilated. If you are particularly sensitive to odor, we can suggest to use KILZ Odorless which has faster odor-dissipation technology OR wait 12-24 hours for odors to fully dissipate as long as space has proper ventilation.

Hi mountainwoman,
One gallon of Kilz Original Oil-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker has a coverage area of 300-400 square feet depending on surface type. For example, a smooth surface will fall more on the high end of coverage, where a rough surface may fall closer to the low end of the range.
Hope this helps. Good luck with your project!

Original 1 gal. White Low-VOC Oil-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 302.
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 We love kilz Kilz has great products, we own a construction company and use kilz on various projects without any issues. We recommend it to our clients and will continue to so so. [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 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 Works great Used it about ten years ago and it worked great. It covered the mold and mildew. And it also prevented new mold and mildew from forming. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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!
