You are correct, 1 gallon of Bora Care will treat 800 sq feet of wood. Since this is a floor and will need to be stained, I would not use more than the label rate. The reason is that the glycol which is in the Bora Care solution and acts as the penetrate, can be sticky and messy if over applied.
Let it dry for as long as possible, usually at least 48-72 hours before staining. If you find a sticky residue or any residue that would hamper your staining efforts, then use a sponge mop and clean water and mop it clean.
Don't worry if you need to mop it, it will have already penetrated into the wood.
Also, if you need to sand, don't worry, you are just sanding treated wood. You can't mop or sand it off after treatment.
As long as the walls are standard pine studs and sheetrock walls, there are no worries. If you have ash or oak paneling, then keep your eyes open and look for the tiny exit holes. You know what to look for now.....
Hope this helps.
