Yep, one should leave the house. Go away for weekend. Take a short vacation. Whatever. It's that strong.

Even with all doors to the rest of the house sealed, slowly but surely, the concentration of volatiles increased. I solved this to a great extent by adding positive pressure to the rest of the house. In my techno-hoard pile, I have a bunch of high efficiency large muffin fans - perfect for windows. Although the house sounds like a data center, the fans force enough fresh air in to keep the fumes contained in the kitchen, but not so much we freeze elsewhere in the house.

The floor does look really, really good. The 3rd and last coat was applied Saturday, and after 48 hours, the odor is down at least 99.9%. Enough that it doesn't bother me.

Would I do it again? Tough question. Maybe.

Should *you* use it? If you can't flee, no. If it is the middle of winter, no. There is a potential upside - if you have any sort of a pest problem (whatever the pest), this would do a dandy job of eliminating the problem.
