Eliminating Smoke Smell With Primer

Shellac Primers Help Eliminate Odors


Ok, so you’re all moved in and ready to get started decorating and organizing… but wait, what IS that smell??  You are just now realizing a smell you didn’t quite notice when you were touring the place before.  Maybe it’s smoke damage, cigarette smoke, or pet odor. When these odors get into the paint/and or floor from pets, they can be a nuisance and even problematic for those with sensitive systems and allergies.

This is something many of us have had to deal with when we move into a new home (well, new to us).

The way to seal these odors from resurfacing after repainting is the primer. Not any old primer will do. It has to be a shellac primer. Other primers just don’t do the job. While quite stinky during application, this is the product for the job if you want reliable results. Not only will this primer seal odor, but it is the best for sealing water damage, and soot from smoke damage, as well as sealing mildew stains.

Feel free to come in and visit your local Miller Paint store for more information, tips, and products you’ll need to get the job done!
