I have a laminated wood floor, actually it's composite wood with a thin top layer of real wood. This floor is in poor condition, and would need a buff / polish and also a layer of varnish to improve it. It cannot be sanded down because the top layer would disappear so it would be a problem. I'd like to make sure the top layer of real wood stays. It is light coloured but considering a darker wood stain / varnish. There are many dents, scuff marks and scratches and while I do not expect the results to be perfect, I was hoping for a temporary solution to improve the floors for a couple of years until I can afford to change them.
