The following steps are recommended for product performance.
- All surfaces must be clean, dry, free of dust, chalk, oil, grease, wax, polish, loose or peeling paint, rust and all other foreign substances.
- 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.
- Glossy Surfaces: For maximum adhesion, scuff sand the surface thoroughly before priming.*
- †Mold or Mildew Covered Surfaces: This product is designed to prevent mold and/or mildew from forming and contaminating the primer film before topcoat is applied. Although it is designed to be applied directly to mold and mildew prone surfaces, any existing mold and/or mildew on the surface should be removed before priming and painting. This will ensure best results. Wash the area with a mildew remover, rinse with water and allow to dry before priming.
- Masonry, Brick and Plaster: KILZ MOLD & MILDEW Primer may be used on clean, dry, aged masonry surfaces. New masonry must be allowed to cure (dry) at least 30 days before applying KILZ MOLD & MILDEW Primer.
- Fire Restoration: Not recommended. Primer Recommendations: KILZ® ORIGINAL, KILZ® ORIGINAL INTERIOR/EXTERIOR and KILZ® RESTORATION.
