Rust-Oleum Corporation is a major source of industrial paint and coating solutions, and it offers a wide range of products for basement protection and restoration, many by Zinsser. Basements often suffer most of all when work facilities are damaged by flood or fire. Repairing damage can be a devastating expense, so Zinsser manufactures a variety of solutions for basement restoration or to prevent excessive damage in the first place – including two options for stain removal.
A favourite choice for professionals
For ultimate hiding power, both indoors and outdoors, Zinsser recommends its unique Cover Stain oil-base primer-sealer. A favourite choice for professionals, this primer-sealer gives users ultimate indoor hiding power as it blocks stains, hides dark colours, prevents tannin bleed, and penetrates and seals exterior wood. Cover Stain can be used under any oil- or water-based topcoat.
Available in four sizes – tins from 946 millilitres to 18.8 litres, plus a 369-gram aerosol spray – Cover Stain suits interior and exterior use, dries in an hour, and sticks to all surfaces without standing. This works best as an exterior wood sealer; it blocks cedar and redwood bleed and seals water, smoke, and nicotine stains. Rust-Oleum recommends applying the spray paint outdoors for best results; the aerosol can spot-prime heavy stains.
In addition, Zinsser also offers Covers Up stain-sealing ceiling paint, designed to extend the life of stained or dingy ceilings. This is an extremely convenient solution with a vertical aerosol spray, which kills stains and touches up ceiling paint in one smooth, even blast. Covers Up is available in one 454-gram size; users should allow two hours of drying prior to re-coating.
Recommended for overhead professional projects, this vertical aerosol is a fast cure for water stains, with a flat white finish that matches most ceiling tiles. Other advantages include no yellowing, low odour, and all-purpose interior use. Covers Up is best used under or over latex and oil-base paints.
Other products by Zinsser for protecting or restoring basements include flexible water blockers, options for mould control, and restoration solutions.
