When it says that the area with mold should be CLEANED prior to using the mold killing primer, what do you use to clean the area? Is it a mold killing spray? It also said that you could paint directly onto the mold with the primer. Im confused.
Asked by: linda
Both ways are correct but, if you want it to last it's better to kill/clean the mold 1st. I use 91% isoproply alcohol in a well ventilated area to kill the mildew, after the alcohol evaporate. I use bleach to remove the mildew stains gotta scrub/wipe and let it dry over nite then paint with this primer.

Hello, Do you need to sand surfaces before using (if glossy)? Thank you!
Asked by: KK
As long as the surface is cleaned properly, you will not need to sand before applying Rust-Oleum Zinsser Mold Killing Primer to your surface. We just want to make the surface is clean, dry, and sound before applying the product. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1

Is this a latex primer?

Is this a latex primer and can it be used to to prep a bathroom floor for vinyl tiles?
Asked by: Phil
It is latex and I don't see any reason not to use it on the bathroom floor. I initially bought it for the outside deck but I also used it in the basement and bathroom wall prep as a precautionary measure.

Zinsser 1 gal. Mold Killing Interior/Exterior Primer, White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 180.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers the tough stuff. Zinsser primer covers and seals well. This product is a water-based product. Water-based products have come a long way in recent years. This product also claims to kill the mold. That's an improvement. Although it states you can paint over the mold, you need to be sure you clean and dry the surface thoroughly before application for best results. (I sound like an ad.) But it's true, from my experience. On occasion, I have found a second application might be needed especially with water-based product. This product dries in 1 hour so that makes reapplication fast if needed. On the rare occasion that this does not seal the stain properly, you can either go with an oil-based product, or tear out and replace the damaged, moldy materials (best). Be sure to apply a thick coat so as to cover the problem area well. Because this has the mold-killing properties, you can use it as a primer instead of adding a fungicide to your regular top-coat paint.

I had mildew problems on my eaves outside my bathroom windows and on my carport ceiling. I killed the mildew by spraying 91% Isopropyl Alcohol on it after it evaporated (alcohol kills the mildew but doesn't remove the stains). Next I sprayed it with bleach and wiped/scrub off the stains, let it dry overnight. Then I painted this primer on the surface and 2 top coats of Zinsser Perma White exterior paint tinted to the color of my choice. It's been 2 yrs. and the mildew hasn't come back. I live on Hawaii Island rainy side and mildew is a constant problem here, I'm a strong advocate of Zinsser products, have been using them over 40 yrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets a real need in the paint market Mold is always an obnoxious issue to deal with. Bleach kills it, but sometimes the budget just doesn't allow full removal of the affected drywall or stone. I used this in conjunction with drylok masonry waterproofer for a tricky basement situation. First we killed the mold with bleach, rinsed, then coated with drylok. After this, we used the mold-killing primer just to keep things in check. We had an odd purple-colored mold that bled/grew through the first coat in about a month. Since applying another coat of this primer, though, the stains and the mold have not reappeared, suggesting the problem is in check. We weren't able to solve the underlying problem -- water is still present in the basement walls -- but at least we solved a health-related issue and made the basement a more pleasant place to live. My take-away from this experience is that one coat may not be enough, but two can solve some tricky problems.
