How long for fumes to dissipate?

2 months ago

We are getting new red oak in the kitchen, laced in with the original red oak in the dining area, and the original will be refinished and the new will be finished (site finished), all with a low VOC waterborne stain and poly. Everyone is telling me we will not want to be in the house at all for this, the flooring company will do it over three days.

How long will it take for fumes to dissipate? Related, just how much dust should I expect to see? We are using a well known and NWFA certified flooring company, but they are old school and not super informative on their site or super responsive to questions.
