Sticky kitchen and dining room floors

Q: We just moved into apartment-type housing. The floors are wood. The flooring in the dining room and kitchen area is very sticky. No amount of mopping is helping.

Is there anything we can do without being in danger of ruining the floors and having to replace them?

A: You could try a polyurethane cleaner such as Bona Pacific Cleaner, purchased from a local hardwood dealer.
