The last point worth making is what you wear on your feet can help prevent slips and falls. The few times I have slipped on our stairs, I was moving quick and wearing plain cotton stocks. I get much better traction from either bare feet, slippers with rubber soles, or socks with non-slip bottoms on them.

What is a quality nonskid floor treatment that you can suggest?

If your floor is a tile floor then you'll want to use a product called Johnny Grip. I used it on my kitchen floor and it's like a night and day difference now! I ordered it right off of their website: http://www.slipperytile.com
Darn, I checked out that site but my floors are hardwood not tile. Thanks for the attempt though!
The floor is slippery and I nervous about someone suffering an injury on the slippery wood floor. I am looking for something to put down to stop the slipperiness. There is no traction between the tennis shoes and the floor. We do put water on the shoes and then wipe it off that helps for a short time. Thank you for your help.

Home Depot, Lowes and other big box stores have products to help reduce the possibility of injury on slippery floors. You can check for their online products or visit a store.
I have been using vinegar and water to clean our hardwood floor but it is still slippery. How can I avoid that?
