    Hi,
    We just moved in to a house with 12-year old engineered flooring downstairs which we don't think has been cleaned in 12 years.
    It's the wide plank style (not the planks made up of lots of small strips stuck together.)
    It's not scratched so I don't want to get it sanded, but it looks really dull and lost its rich lustre.
    Can anyone recommend how to give it a good clean to remove the dirt and then what/how to refinish it and what with? (Some sort of floor wax?)
    What products would you use on engineered wooden flooring like this?

    Thanks

    Sand it clean with something like a lagler trio orbital sander then seal as required

    Do you know if it’s oiled or lacquered? When lacquer goes dull you can bring it back to life with a bona floor polish. Get it professionally cleaned first.
    If it’s oiled you can wash it with a deep cleaning solution from Woca, Osmo or bona and then apply a new coat of oil.

    If you are going to clean it yourself, don't over wet it and use a wet and dry vac to remove the liquid
