How to Apply Zinsser Perma-White Mold & Mildew-Proof Interior Paint
Surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free of dust, dirt, grease, wax, wall covering adhesive, soap film, loose paintor any contamination that may interfere with adhesion. Remove all existing mold and mildew before painting. If you are concerned about mold and mildew behind walls, underneath flooring, in ventilation systems or other unseen areas, contact a professional who specializes in mold and mildew remediation. For commercial buildings and schools, follow appropriate guidelines for mold removal. Clean surfaces with a solution of one cup household bleach per gallon of water or a quality biocidal wash.
Two coats are required for proper performance and mold & mildew-proof resistance. Apply only when air, material, and surface temperatures are between 50-90ºF (10-32ºC) and the relative humidity is below 80%. Thoroughly mix to ensure any settled pigment is re-dispersed before using. Apply with a synthetic (nylon, polyester or blend) bristle brush, roller, pad applicator or airless sprayer. Follow manufacturers instructions when using spray equipment. For airless spraying use a 0.017" tip at 2000 to 2600 psi. Wear NIOSH approved respirator and provide adequate ventilation.
