Cleaning the Hardwood Floors

It seems that the cleaning products we're using aren't ineffective; the floors are just THAT dirty!  We've been cleaning with the Bona mop and the Pledge spray.  The areas that we've cleaned today, are shiny now!  I have to find out how we can get the best cleaning/polishing product, though.  We have to find out what kind of wood this is, and the type of finish on it (urethane, polyurethane, etc.).

The microfiber mop in this kit seems to work really well.  It's machine washable, so once we have a washing machine, we will be able to clean it.

This cleaner smells really good.  It looks great when it's still wet, but once it dries, it has a dull sheen to it.  I wonder if it's because we should be using something else, or if it's due to the floor being really, really dirty.

Sandra was using the H20 bottle and a rag to rub off all the dried paint on the floor.  It took a whole lot of elbow grease, but she was pretty happy with the results.

This website (http://www.cinhome.com/shop/shop.cgi?&page=gapfiller.html) had some pretty detailed information on how to fill gaps between the floor boards.  There are quite a few of them, and I can even feel air coming in from them!  I just need a rug that's large enough to cover the bedroom floor!
