two years ago I had dry wall installed over my plaster ceilings. The mistake I made is that I did not clean the wooden floors immediately and a LOT of dust got in the floors. Without having to sand them (I do not have the $$), can you give me a suggestion for a heavy duty wood floor cleaner, high pressure cleaner or anything of that nature? Or any other alternatives to cleaning them and hopefully getting this dust out, I have tried diluting Murphys Oil soap, but it only worked a little. thanks

Dear Dan,
From what I can gather from your posting, is that you've ground the dust into the floor via foot traffic. What might work is either a light application of Tung Oil over the trouble spots, or Johnson's Paste wax and a green scrubby pad. Both have worked well for me. With the tung oil, remember to wipe up the excess within 30 minutes and do not walk on it for at least 24 hours. Buff the wax with a soft towel.
Good Luck,
P.S. Tung Oil is also great for hiding light scratches in furniture. It makes them go away.
