    I have hardwood flooring that is pretty old and worn. Some parts still have finish, others dont.

    I dont have the time, money, etc. to strip, sand, refinish them.

    Is there a product I could get that I can apply easily with a mop to protect and seal them until there is a time I can do things the right way?

    The issue with hardwood is that if you finish it correctly, you will get many years out of it, but once the time comes to refinish it, you need to do it correctly. Besides applying a new coat of polyurethane, maybe a good polish might help, but it will not bring the look back to new. Also, another word of suggestion is that if you don't seal the wood, water and crap will get into the grain and basically ruin the wood, so don't wait too long. ONly upside is that hard work is always a good investment to a house, pays off in the end.
