Good Questions: Dealing With Damaged Wood Floors?

Hi AT, I'm renting an apartment in an old brownstone in Prospect Heights. I love the place, but the floors are really old. Because of this, I feel like the apartment always looks and feels much dirtier than it really is, even though I clean and vacuum consistently. Do you have any tips for how to clean the wood floors to make them look, if not newer, less unappealing? (pictures attached). Laying new tiles or carpet on top is not an option, as the landlord would freak out.

Thanks!

We have a similar problem with old, damaged wood floor in our rental. Who has advice for us?
