Are my Hardwood Floors Sealed?

Okay, I feel a little silly asking about this but here goes. We bought our first house and I have no idea which products I should be using to clean my hardwood floors. I don't know how to tell if they are 'sealed' or 'treated' or 'waxed' or what. The house is about 100 years old and I don't know if they are original or not. I would guess not, as they just seemed too perfect when we bought.

They were nice and shiny. After a few months they have dulled a bit with foot traffic. I'd like to make them shiny (and clean) again.

Any ideas on how to figure this out? :shrug:

Thanks

I use nothing more than white vinegar/water solution to clean mine. Works well, even with a dog that tracks in mud every spring!:D

I bought a mop that has a terrycloth (sort of) cover over a rectangular pad - bigger than a sponge mop. I use it along with some squirt cleaner designed for hardwood floors that I get at the grocery store. It does not make the floor shiny, but does do a good job at cleaning all the footprints etc.

Same here, I think what I use is called Orange-Glo for Hardwood Floors, it doesnt make it really shiny - but does give a little gloss to it. Works great.
