I had a. fire gut my shop some years ago. I was able to save the wooden shell 
but it really smelled, even after months Of airing out & smoke abatement 
fogging.  I decided to try encapsulating the walls with paint & tried both Kilz 
& Zinzer 1-2-3 primer. The Kilz didnâ??t do so well, but the 1-2-3 did great. 
Itâ??s been about 4 years now & I canâ??t tell that there ever was a fire. 

My point being to try several different products & go with the one that works 

Peace, Pat

is it mold odor, or...?  In the past I've had to deal with cat pee damaged 
walls/floors - what I couldn't cut out I normally used Nature's miracle on for 
a while (like cover it with plastic so it stays wet) and/or kilzed it to seal 
the odor in.  I also got to deal with a minor mold issue in my dad's house when 
we were prepping it for sale.  they would kill the mold with the method du 
jour, maybe wash that off (not sure on that), seal it with kilz and call it 
good. As usual, please research this further if this sounds like a possibility 
- I am not a mold remediator guy or play one on tv, so....

Good Luck,
