I have finished a dresser with VOC 2.1lbs/gal sealer--is this low? The sealer and lacquer are Valspar Premium WW Satin Lacquer and Valspar Sanding Sealer. Is it ok to put dry finished dresser in an infant's room? I'd like to avoid chemical off-gassing. Thanks!

Thanks for your questions. Wood sealers can be water-based or oil-based and both can contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs). What quantity is acceptable to the government and what is acceptable...
