    We have some nice floorboards, they haven't been varnished, but look like they have some sort of treatment, we've been in this house for just over a year.

    Do I need to do anything with them from year to year? What happens if I don't treat/feed/re-seal them?

    I have asthma and react badly to fumes.

    Thank you!

    If you don't protect them, dirt will become ingrained into the surface.

    Nothing wrong with that if you like it, tate modern has unfinished oak boards iirc.
