Kilz is Ineffective To
have mold in my bathroom (ceiling and upper wall) and have tried bleach
water and repainted with Kilz. The mold is returning."

Bleach and Kilz are ineffective to kill mold growth. As to bleach,
please visit: Bleach
Mold Myth. As to Kilz, that good product is useful only to hide water
stains and other surface blemishes as a primer coating prior to painting.
Kilz does NOT kill anything, including mold growth. Kilz is a good paint
primer, but certainly not an EPA-registered fungicide and certainly not
appropriate in your mold remediation efforts. If there is mold growth in
your walls and ceilings, you need to follow the 25 steps for safe and
effective mold remediation.
Q. I live in a townhome and I had a
leak within my walls from the upstairs bathroom. Now I was told that the
leak has been a steady slow leak for the past year. When they went into
the walls to repair the pipes I notice mold growing on my kitchen
cabinets. Now they told me that they treated the mold with two different
substances Kilz and Molecular Modifier. Can you tell me anything about
these two chemicals and their use in mold treatment? [May 27, 2005]
Neither product is EPA-registered to kill mold, and neither product is
appropriate or suitable for mold remediation efforts. Kilz is used to
camouflage or hide water stains as a paint primer before painting.
Molecular Modifier is a pet odor camouflage. Learn the 25 steps for safe
mold remediation. Be sure you mold test your entire home for mold
cross contamination---learn how at
Mold Inspection and the
Mold Store. A continuing leak inside a wall is very conducive for the
growing of the deadly Stachybotrys black mold, as well as other molds.---Phillip
