How long do I wait to air out the house after using things toxic to birds before I get my birds back

So we got new hardwood floors, and of course being parrot owner I check in to see what products they are using. They are using a glue that I have researched is bad for birds bc of fumes and they used paint thinner on the floors (more fumes) all of the windows are open all throughout the house, the house is being completely aired out. It has been 24 hours so far. How much longer do I wait? I miss my birds but it’s better to be safe than sorry. It doesn’t help that my family doesn’t understand the delicate bird lungs. They think it’s fine to have them in the house within a few hours of airing it out. How long do I wait?

No, I cannot still smell them. However there are fumes that you cannot smell, non stick cookware is an example

When I had new carpeting put in my birds were out of the house for about 2 weeks. I think I could have brought them home sooner but I was being extra careful.

Call the manufacturer and ask how long it lasts.
