I'm looking to refresh/repair our hardwood floors. We have some high traffic areas that are showing wear. I'm skeptical of sandless and low VOC treatments, but it would be convenient since we wouldn't have to seal off rooms.

 

Any experience with this? I'm also wondering about this Rejuvenate retail stuff for DIY if we're not going to sand.

Doesn't look good for a long term solution.

We've done our floors 3 times in 25 years. First time was a chemical strip of the old varnish. That took a long time and a lot of paper towels.

The last 2 times was sanding.

This last time, I went with the best rated polyurethane I could buy. Bona System. It's made for commercial applications. It's been good so far.

sanding with a fresh coat of poly is going to be best.  and you could stain the wood if you want to change the color at the same time.

FWIW, we had new wood floors installed on our main stairway and the entire upstairs last year.  The installers used this to seal it:

No smell, quick-drying, so far very, very tough and it feels very smooth on your bare feet when you walk on it.  I was skeptical that a water-based product would protect that well but it seems very durable.

Take a look at the Duraseal line of maintenance products. I used their stuff on the oak floors in my last house. A little spendy, but the results were worth it.
