Temp fix for hardwood floors
We have a 1950s house with hardwood flooring of some kind in the living room. It was covered by carpet, but after potty training a dog or two, I tore it out. In a few months we are going to be putting vinyl floor planks down, but in the meantime the floors are in horrible shape.
The current finish is thin to non existent throughout the room and have new dogs going through potty training so cleaning multiple times a day and worried about water damage.
Is there a cheap finish that will help control damage until we can get better flooring in? Tempted to just paint the floors, but don't want to have to strip paint later if we, or future owners, decide to take it down to the hardwood again. The room is less than 200 sqft and would prefer not to sand if possible.
