We have a routine rental inspection next week and I want to make the wooden floors look as nice as possible.
They are not modern polished boards, more of a rustic non-shiny wood and they scratch very easily.
What can I mop or polish the boards with to make them look good? I've got wood magic but it doesn't make them look any different, just cleaner obviously.
These are the floor boards:

My family members lay timber floors for a living and only ever recommend water with a dash of methylated spirits. Mop not too wet on timber floors. If you have used other products they tend to leave a film which actually makes floors grimier and make dust etc stick to them so you might need to do metho and water a couple of times to cut through the film. Straight metho on a cloth can be used to hand scrub bits of sticky stuff stuck on floors. Hope this helps. Steam mops can also be used on these floors if you are very careful that they aren't too wet.

My favourite is hot kettle water with vinegar. The combination cleans well and dries fast. The vinegar smell goes after 10 mins so no stress with that either
