Answer: 
The Mold Killing Primer will target existing mold on the surface, but for the best protection topcoat with a moisture resistant or mildew resistant paint, such as the Perma-White Mold and Mildew-Proof Satin Interior Paint

Yes you can but you have to remember that this is a primer paint with mold killing ability. Primer paints are used to make a base for a finish coat of paint. Primers are coarse in nature even though they fill in the open pores of the material you are painting wheather it is wood or sheetrock. Being coarse in nature provides a rougher surface for mold to reattach to in the future. Mold that is painted Read More

Being coarse in nature provides a rougher surface for mold to reattach to in the future. Mold that is painted over gets locked into the primer coats layers. It is always recommened to apply a finish coat over your primer coat(s) to make a smooth surface thereby making it harder for future mold to attach to and regrow again. Read Less

I see no reason why you couldn't. I also used it in my bathroom but painted over it. However, after noticing some mildew on the hallway ceiling, I'm planning on painting it with just Mold Primer.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I have to write a dissenting opinion. This is latex, not absorbed by drywall, and for me it came off as I was painting!! Number one this product is overpriced. There is no way it is worth more than $20 a gallon. True, it did block the water stain and signs of mold, however as you can see it was not absorbed into the drywall. (Note: the primer had been on the ceiling for at least 2 weeks before I started painting.) I used regular ceiling paint with a little bit of added texture to cover any imperfections in the ceiling. Admittedly, it was a bit thicker and heavier than regular paint. As I was about to finish, I noticed a small air pocket where the paint and primer had come loose from the ceiling, as I went up on the ladder that small area got bigger and bigger until finally about 20 square feet had come loose from the ceiling, about the exact area that I used the Zinnser mold killing primer as opposed to my regular Behr primer. Horribly flawed product, and now I have to start over. What more can I say about it? June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff covers well I have two spare rooms that I plan to renovate but I’m not ready to start yet so I’m trying this product out on a scrap piece of wood for now. When I received this there was some paint around the rim by the lid which I thought was a little strange coming straight from the factory. This is quite thick so it puts on a good layer with just one coat, see pictures. It also does not need to have a topcoat on it. It can be recoated in an hour which is pretty good. Because this kills mold and mildew it has pesticide safety warnings on it as well as the normal paint safety warnings so you should take notice and be careful with it. I don’t know how effective it is against mold because I would have to judge that over time and see if any mold comes back. I’m assuming it does the job it says it does. If I see any mold on it later I’ll re-review it. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't smell too bad! Having survived painting a bathroom with oil based Kilz to kill mildew, I didn't want to do it again! This was SO much easier! No overwhelming fumes, easy water clean-up (cleaned up so well that I was even able to re-use the roller!), and it went onto the walls easily. I was most interested in the mold killing aspect, and I presume it will continue to work - so far (1 month) no mildew has returned. But it also works very nicely as a primer (duh!). Nice and thick, covering even the ugly brown that was on the wall, so I could paint 1 coat of a pale yellow! It does have an odor - must be the mold killer - but it isn't too bad, and it dissipates by the next day (with the window open). NOTHING like Kilz oil base! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must have for DIY This is a great product for anyone, DIYer or Professional, to have when you project involves mold. We had a bathroom that had poor ventilation and had a few mold spots which we cleaned and then went back over it with Zinsser Mold Killing Primer. Bathroom looks great and we have peace of mind that we were able to save the expense of removing our wallboard. In another bathroom that was used improperly where the moisture vent fans were never used by our kids we had to Demo it. We used this primer to paint over the wallboard before we did the Demo work to cut down on mold spores release. Once Zinsser Mold Killing Primer is dry the mold is being killed and locked in for easier and safer Demolition work. June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best primer available, recommended by a proffesional This is the best primer on the market! It was recommended by a professional painter! It's the only brand I will buy now! July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome This product really did the work. I wished I would have bought it sooner July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Watching closely We were going to put new counter tops and sinks in both bathrooms. The master bath went smoothly. When it came to the second bathroom. we found a mold when we removed the old counter top from the cabinet. I than removed the cabinet and found mold in the sheet-rock and back and bottom of the cabinet. I removed the cabinet to be rebuilt (since HD guessed $500.00 for a custom built one). After everything was taken out I painted all the studs, drywall back ( other wall) and some of the sub-floor. I hope this stuff works, the new dry-wall I cover the studs will not let me see what is happening inside the wall. The new dry-wall will also be painted (both sides) with this primer. I hope I never see mold in that area again. November 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good stuff Goes on well. Great coverage. I put on two coats though I didn't need to (I did some patching after the first coat requiring a second coat). There was a little mold that was completely taken care of. This is good stuff. June 29, 2016
