Why is my dog so terrified of the hardwood floors of my new apartment?

My new place is almost completely hardwood flooring.
My dog won't walk on them, even for treats. If I set her on the floor she scurries to the closest person and jumps onto them, or finds a towel or blanket on the floor. Now she barks when she wants to go outside/elsewhere because she refuses to walk on the floor!
I see how it can scare her, but is it possibly actually hurting her? Shouldn't she have figured this out by now (we've been here for four days)? Please please please what can I do to fix this short of carpeting the entire floor?!
Thank you for your reply!
