Can't Afford To Refinish My Hardwood Floors

Question: I too need to have my floors refinished but it isn't in the budget. Could I just clean the floors really well and then put a polyurethane on them to hold me over until "someday" comes when it might be in the budget?

Answer: Their are two problems with adding a coat of urethane over your hardwood floors. The first is that you will seal in any dirt, grime and other marks. The second is that if there is any wax or varnish on the floor the urethane will not adhere to it.
