How to clean/shine old bamboo floors

We've been in our house a little over 3 months and there is bamboo flooring in the family room, kitchen, and hallway. I think the floors were installed a few years ago. From what I've read about bamboo, they're supposed to be very sturdy and strong unless they're very cheap, which I think these probably are since they are terribly scratched and very dull. And nearly everything causes them to scratch, including my son's high chair sliding across the floor, even though it's on wheels! :( I've also read that you're not supposed to use 'regular' hardwood floor cleaner or wax! Is there anything I can do to remove the scratches and restore a shine to them?
