We've applied Kilz oil-based primer to our subfloor prior to installing a pre-finished hickory hardwood floor. We do have an Air-wise air filter that we are currently using; the last coat of Kilz went down today, and the floor will be done tomorrow. How long before we can feel safe that the Kilz is done off-gassing? This last coat is of special concern because it is in our 8 year old daughter's bed room, and we don't want to expose her (or ourselves) to any toxins we don't have to.

Dear Yohai,

The duration for off-gassing is very hard to estimate. It will be determined by several factors such as:

  • interior temperatures,
  • humidity and
  • air circulation.

The best advice is to provide as much ventilation...
