I'd contact Sandy Paper and his cousin Elbow Grease.

First thing is to check and see if it is laminate or solid hardwood. You would be surprised at how old laminate can be. We have some over 100 years old. Very little can be done to it but cleaning. The most important thing to remember is ALWAY experiment in a spot that is not going to be that visible, even with just cleaning.

I believe you might be able to rent a large sander from Ace for floors.

Dale Thom and his wife Pearl helped us with our floors several years ago and did a great job. Not sure if they still do them or not. I don't have their number any more but I bet its in the phone book.

Small drum sander, lots of muscle. Then refinish. Just remember that by removing your carpet you will have made large gaps under any doorways.

When we removed the carpet, plywood, linoleum from our 1918 Miles City home we found the original maple hardwood floor. It had had a hard life. It had paint, holes, missing pieces and all kinds of abuse. We had it repaired and refinished by Cam Brown Wood Floors. We were amazed with the result. After seeing the work involved we would not tackle it ourselves but I suppose it could be done. Power sanders can do a lot of damage in the hands of an inexperienced operator and without dust containment will make a gigantic mess.
