We recently purchased our home. It has hardwood floors in the kitchen and hallways but hasn't been treated in years. I'm not sure if I need to sand it or not. Any tips?
It's hard to tell if they "need" to be sanded or not without seeing them. If the floors are not too bad, but you want them to have a fresh look. A light sanding and 2 -3 new coats of polyurethane will do the trick. If there are places that the poly has been completely worn off,(high traffic areas) then you will need to do a complete sanding. Sanding is a big job, although not as bad as it once was. There are some much better sanders to rent out there now.

Try using SKID SAFE Water Based Sealer/Finish with ND Aggregate TM which I have successfully used on my hardwood floors, concrete driveway, and painted garage floors, and in my ceramic tile bathroom.
These materials were very slippery wet before I used these amazing products, and now they are not slippery either WET nor DRY !
SKID SAFE Water Based Sealer/Finish.
I have used them for over 8 years ! See www.ndclean.com, the manufacturer/creator since 1986. (02/15/2008)
