I'm painting some walls in an old home that needs a fresh coat of primer/paint. The house has been sitting a while so it has some general odors that I'm thinking a simple coat of paint will help cover up. I used Zinsser BIN in the 1st floor where it had some water stains, but the 2nd floor has regular walls that just need a fresh coat.
The walls are plaster but are in good shape overall. I did some skim coating/compound repairs where needed and would like to get a fresh coat on top now.
The place hasn't been lived in for a while so it just has that old smell of a house that's been closed up for a while. Guessing a coat of paint and having the floors sanded and the odor I am talking about will be gone.
Is something like Zinnser Bullseye 1-2-3 or Kilz an ideal primer for general priming to give a good base coat for paint, and possibly help block any lingering odors? There are so many different options out there, so I'm just looking for some possible options that have worked for you all so I can see what's available local and get the job finished up.
