How do I clean my untreated hardwood floor?

It doesn't have the shiny gloss of most hardwood floors (the color is sort of like the light tan of the unpolished, sharpened part of a pencil) and looks easily damaged. (If it makes a difference, this is in a newly converted loft.) I'm afraid it's particularly sensitive to water. I've bought a general all-purpose cleaner, Murphy's Wood Oil, a bucket, and a mop, but I'm a little wary about using them on this wood. In a few places, the wood has that sag and bend similar to wood flooring that's been damaged by water. What should I do? I've asked my landlord and she didn't have any recommendations.
