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: DYIGuy
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.

1 gal. Mold Killing Interior/Exterior Primer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 63.
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.

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.

It didn't seem to work that well in removing the odor. I'm not sure if it is meant for something like this. I cannot comment on the mold/ mildew coverage. I wound up purchasing Zinsser BIN primer with shellac which did in fact seal in the odor on the subflooring.
