You can see these floors are pretty beat up. The finish has worn completely off and the wood has be damaged from wear and tear. This is common in houses this old. I think this home was built around 1920. The thing is though, this can happen to any floor. Even a floor that just got refinished a couple years ago. If there is a lot of water and dirt that get on the floor and is not cleaned up quickly, then the finish is going to break down fast. Dirt and moisture will kill your floors. You have to swept regularly and clean up any water immediately that gets on the floors if you want to maintain your finish. I wish I had an after picture of this hallway, but I don’t. I always forget to take the after picture.
This is a different floor, but it looks about the same as that other one would after it got sanded. The only difference is that this floor has wider boards that are two and a quarter inches wide, whereas that other floor had boards that were one and a half inches wide.
