Preparation

  • The surface must be clean, free of dust, grease, wax, peeling paint, mold, mildew, wallpaper paste. If washing is necessary, use a non-soapy detergent or a TSP substitute. Rinse well and allow to dry.

  • Peeling or Checked Paint: Scrape off loose paint and sand to a smooth surface. Sanding or removal of paint containing lead is hazardous.

  • *Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before painting.

  • Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before painting.

  • Masonry, Brick, Stucco (Popcorn ceilings) and Plaster: KILZ® CEILING PAINT may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces. New masonry must be allowed to cure (dry) at least 30 days before applying KILZ® CEILING PAINT.
