Q: We just bought an old home and the hard wood floors have lost their shine. Is their an inexpensive method we can do to bring the shine back? Like a store bought wax or something?

A: It really depends what they are finished with? Are they oiled and waxed? Or is it a polyurethane coating? If you put a few drops of water on a board for several minutes, it will leave a spot if it is wax. In that case, you could use a product made by Dura Seal called “Renovator” which will both clean and coat the floors. If it is Polyurethane, it may be that someone has used a product on them to “clean” the surface, and it has actually left a dulling residue. One of the best cleaners for this sort of finish is Bona Pacific floor cleaner. Both of these products could likely be purchased through your nearest hardwood retail outlet.
