Re: Sanding/refinishing oak floor a DIY job?

Then there is the smell. You won't be able to live in your house for 1 week, assuming you manage to coat all the surface in 1 day and do the buffing passes in 1 day, then re-coat the same day.

If you only do rooms you can just open the windows, close the door, and optionally, seal it with some tape, and the smell shouldn't be a big deal. Been there, done that.

Use water based poly, e.g. Bona Traffic, and it has almost no smell and dries in a few hours.
