    Q:Does this kill and cover mildew on painted drywall celings?
    by|May 24, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Terry, thank you for your question. Our Kilz Original Interior/Exterior Oil-Based Primer is not designed to kill mold. I recommend cleaning the ceiling with a bleach and water mixture or a mold-killing cleaner to eliminate any active growth. Once clean and dry, the primer will provide excellent stain-blocking coverage over the surface and works for most severe stains. Have a great day! -Lina

              Amazing Product!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My attic bedroom had about 5 layers of wallpaper. When I attempted to remove it, I discovered some sort of flaky fiberboard under it. My investigation revealed that the only solution was to tear it all out and drywall. Well, I simply did not have the funds for that big of a job, so I glued the loose edges, gave it a light sanding and put two coats of Kilz oil based primer over it. I let it cure for a few weeks and then covered it with textured wallpaper… and held my breath! It’s been perfect for 5 years now! No peeling, no bumps, no problems at all!

                  The Terrible Tenant
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I made the mistake of allowing a young man with 2 cats and too much on his plate to rent a room in my home. He was never home, and he kept his cats locked up in the room almost all day everyday. I'll spare the dirty details, but when this young man moved out, I had to rip out the carpet and Killz the entire subfloor. Thank goodness for Killz because I would've had to tear out the entire subfloor because of the smell. Used 2-3 coats in some areas, new carpet, and BAM... the room is perfect.

                      Kikz is what keeps my paint on what I'm painting
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are making lighthouses that cover up people's well covers. We're making them out of plywood and I'm using stain kill to seal the wood both interior and exterior and edges so that this lawn art will last longer being out in the weather. It is the best product for this need

                        Easy application and clean up
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Use it on all outside trim on house and outbuildings and also inside as here in the Pacific Northwest we have all kinds of different weather.

                          Easy to use
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to use, covers great and requires little to no sanding. Many people by the primer and paint together, but by doing this the paint doesn't level as well, it is thick and shows brush marks. You can step down and use a cheeper paint that flows better with smoother results

                            Smooth application and finish
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used Kilz products over the course of 30 years. Standard stains, sealing kitchen tile and cabinets. Most recently I painted over Formica cabinets in my sister's house. 3 coats of kilz3 hand brushed and Polyurethane to seal. Very durable and easy to clean.
