I wrote earlier about my job which started as oil based, and my thinking now is to re-strip and move to water based. I have (a little late!) learned of the problems with oil based. I want to use a finish I can trust as very safe and high quality. It doesn't have to be the cadillac of finishes, but if it costs more to get this right, so be it. Maybe there's one out there that is not a bad value, and very green? My floor refinisher says he typically uses Bona Mega; please advise if that's an excellent choice, or not. Thank you kindly, Bill
