    I did mine on my hands and knees with a 4" brush 25 years ago. Backbreaking is not an exaggeration! However, now there are much better options available. The steps will depend on the type of prior finish. Many old floors are just waxed. You need to determine what you're working on. I suggest finding out, taking plenty of pictures, using an unobtrusive test spot, and then going to a home improvement store or good paint store and asking about methods and products. Good luck!

    Be careful not only physically but inhaling fumes from the refinishing products. If you can scrape together the $ I would go with a good professional.
