Now here's the thing, the original finish was probably some kind of shellac, and that had many decades of floor wax on it - but was mostly covered by throw rugs, actually, which kept it in good shape.
The new finish is I guess the MinWax Dura-something finish, which I gather includes top coats of polyurethane. I asked for semi-gloss top finish. Was that a good idea?
Here's the thing, apparently people seem to believe this kind of floor finish is good on its own, doesn't need first coats or regular coats of floor cleaner/polish/wax, indeed can be cleaned with water-based cleaners.
So, my questions are:
* Is what I wrote above about right for common practice these days?
* Should these floors be given a coat of polish/wax?
* How *does* one best care for these modern finished wood floors?
