Refinishing Parquet Oak Floors (ADVICE NEEDED)!!!

I am buying a house that has 1,400 sqft of parquet oak floors.
The place is 18 years old, and the previous owner says he sanded
and applied a coat of polyurthene one year ago. The floors look
like new but they look bare (unprotected). I know that three coats
of poly are recommended. I need to ask him exactly what product he

My questions include:
* How do I test the floor to see if it is protected?
* How do I know if wax products were ever used over the poly?
* When reapplying, they say to go with the grain. How does that apply to parquet tiles?
* What is sidebonding?
* What type of poly applicator is best to use with parquet tile?
* Is it better to spray on vs. using an applicator?
* Do I screen between a second and top coat or buff?
* Based on this list of questions should I hire a professional?

Thanks for any information you can provide!
