How Can I Bring My Hardwood Floors Back To Life?

Good Question

Pin it button big

Q: I've recently had some construction work done in my rental apartment and the workers have really damaged the hardwood floors! The flooring is already very old (it's a pre-war building in downtown Manhattan) and it had a lot of existing scratches, gouges, and general wear. Now the wear and tear has drained the flooring of its color and looks perpetually dirty. Can you recommend a product or process for bringing the wood back to life?
