    I’ve been asked to clean some wood flooring and then oil it. The client doesn’t want to have it sanded. How would people approach this?

    Would just cleaning an 'oiled' wooden floor be sufficient enough to then re-oil it- especially idf the dirt is as ingrained as in Chris' photos?

    The best thing would be to do a test patch with a drill / brush and see how good it cleans up. Im sure it will clean up nice.

    Are they both wooden floors, or is one laminate flooring.

    An alternative would be to use dry compound agitated with a crb
    Could also use a light misting of STS in conjunction with dry compound
