How does it take for Synteko Classic Floor Finish to finish outgassing? Not just the odor.

Asked by Gail

I am very chemically sensitive and know about VOC"S etc. New apartment with new landlord insist on refinishing floors using a contractor who uses Syteko Classic. I need to have some idea of how long it will be before it is safe for me to move in or do I need to find another place to live?

If your landlord does not respect you enough to take chemical sensitivities into account, then you should move. Outgassing is like radiation, it is never completely gone, only less than detectable.
