    Light sand, re-finish, regularly clean with a spray flooring soap and microfibre cloth.

    Open grain wood floors will require regular maintenance to keep their appearance as dirt etc gets in the grain and can't be cleaned out. A Matt Lacquer finish would have limited this issue almost entirely but requires more care not to scratch the surface.
