In reply to can't smell it from here - prbly not floor... by jb on December 10th, 2001 12:33 PM [Go to top of thread]

How new is this floor? What you may be smelling could be a residual odor from the factory applied finish. All finishes require a "vehicle" such as Mineral Spirits, Alcohol, Glycol, etc. All new products that are made with these things will have a residual odor for several days and sometimes for a few weeks. If your floor is new, I'd give it some time. Open a window a bit if your concerned about breathing this stuff, but most likely, there isn't enough to cause you any harm. The warnings on most materials about breathing in vapors, are intended for long term exposure. Being exposed to the vapor from Mineral Spirits causes something, but I can't remember what......


Oh, yeah! Memory loss....


Now, what were we talking about...... :o)
