Getting a nice shine on old floors

I just moved into my house and the hardwood floors upstairs don't have much shine to them. What is the easiest way to get a nice shine back to my floors without refinishing the poly coat.

Getting a nice shine on old floors

You'll have to determine what type of finish is on them now. If it is a wax You can rewax and buff them to a nice sheen. However this will be an ongoing maintenence as the wax wears out.

You could strip the wax and give the floor a light sanding and topcoat with a gloss or semigloss Poly-urethene. Poly holds up well and you can determine if you want satin, semigloss, or a gloss finish
