I’m the the process of ripping up the carpet in my bedroom and exposing the floorboards underneath. I'm guessing they’ve been living under carpet for anywhere between 10-50 years and they’re in need of some TLC. They’re naked, unfinished wood (I can't tell what type of wood) with years of dirt and dust that I can’t manage to sweep up, there's gaps between most of them and a couple have splintered away a bit at the joins (see attached image) I want to clean them to bring out the colour and grain of the wood and to make them smooth so I won't end up with splinters in my feet but i don't want to sand them down (big room, lot of heavy furniture, lots of dust), I don't want to damage them and i don't want to risk warping them as a few are already a bit curved.
