Q:Can I use this on interior walls of a mobile home
by|May 21, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help, Steve! Yes, Rust-Oleum Zinsser Odor Killing Primer can be used on interior walls. Since this is a primer, it will require a topcoat for full durability and performance when used on a wall. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:Can this be used over a shellac finish to seal out pet odors on in a hardwood floor and then top-coated with a clear polyurethane rated for floors?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to clear things up, Charlotte! While Rust-Oleum Zinsser Odor Killing Primer can be used over most finishes and can be topcoated with a polyurethane, the shellac on the surface now may need an additional sealer to allow it to be coated over. Most shellac finishes, such as our Bulls Eye Shellac, contain wax and can prevent paints and most other finishes from properly adhering. If this is the case, we recommend applying a coat of Rust-Oleum Zinsser Seal Coat Universal Sanding Sealer to ensure full adhesion. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Zinsser-1-gal-Universal-Sanding-Sealers-2-Pack-851/202057181 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Rust-Oleum Zinsser Odor Killing Primer is suitable for use on all painted or unpainted interior surfaces such as wood, cabinets, walls and ceilings, including drywall, cured plaster, masonry, metal and PVC.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Happy to clear things up, Johanna! We recommend allowing the stain to dry completely prior to applying Rust-Oleum Zinsser Odor Killing Primer. Since this is a primer product, you will need to apply a top coat over this product for lasting results unless you are putting a flooring material over it, such as carpet or tile. This product is compatible with any clear finish or paint. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

          Masking Tobacco Stains/Smells
          For the first time, I used this product in an attempt to mask tobacco stains/smells with interior walls and ceilings. It seems to have done its job, my only comment is that I applied the product using a paint roller and it did not seem to provide an even coat. This I noticed once I applied the Zinsser Restoration Primer on top of it... which also did not apply with an even coat using a paint roller. I have attached a couple of photos... the first shows after applying the Odor Killing Primer...

            Gets rid of smoke odor
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was really looking forward to this product for it's odor masking properties. I am a disgusting smoker and I've been thinking about moving. I did quit smoking in the house but I am very worried about the smell. I was surprised to have came across this product, I have never seen anything like this before. I really like how when you apply this it goes on white, so I'm not going over the same spots multiple times. After I finished coating the walls, I just painted them as normal. The primer has an odor but it's not overpowering and does go away after awhile. I was able to get a realtor in here and she couldn't smell smoke to my surprise. This stuff really works, I had absolutely no problems during the process and I definitely recommend this product! Thank you so much!

              I can’t smell the odors anymore
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this product in my bathroom because it smelled of mildew. I liked that it starts off being white so you know where you haven’t been yet when painting this on wall or wherever. This product glides on easily and doesn’t take long to dry. I do wish that the smell was even less. Although the smell is not nearly as potent as smelling the mildew that I am getting rid of.

                Love this!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We just recently bought a house and we used this product on the walls that were smoked covered and you could smell the smoke and pet urine. After using this product you can't even tell that the smoke or urine smell was there. Definitely recommend

                  Turns White When Wet
                  We planned to use Zinsser BIN, but this product’s Odor Killing claim, and that it was supposed to turn clear when dried, appealed to us. We the applied the product to our cement basement floor. Anytime water spills on the floor, the primer turns white and becomes soft enough to scrape off with the slightest touch. We haven’t gotten a final word from the company on how they might compensate us, if at all.

                  Let's see what we can figure out Ed. Zinsser Odor Killing Primer is not suitable for application to concrete floors (except for sub floors), since it is not designed to withstand foot traffic. Additionally, Odor Killing Primer, as a primer, must be top coated. Give us a call at 888-855-1774 so we can hear more about your application and try to make things right.

                    The product does seal odors but it has a unique smell as well. In one of the areas we applied two layers of the primer and the smell is still there after installing underlayment and flooring, but it's lighter. Hope it can go away. The product is clear after dry as described, see photo, if you want to cover stains or other stuff on the subfloor you might want to try their BIN primer instead.

                    Thank you for your feedback, Leslie! In ideal conditions, Rust-Oleum Zinsser Odor Killing Primer fully cures after 7 days. After this point, any odor form the coating will have dissipated from the surface. Please keep in mind that higher humidity, cooler temperatures, or poor ventilation can extend the cure time.
