Inside our log house (white pine, red pine, and hemlock from North Carolina) has never been treated for 25 years. The logs are dirty and a tenant sprayed "something" on the logs beneath the windows (to make it appear the windows leaked). This was about four months ago. How can I "clean" the entire house and how should I try to handle the stains beneath the windows? Thank You, Roy


You could try washing the logs with Log Wash from Perma Chink. If that does not do what you need they will probably have to be sanded.

I have the same issue...interior cedar logs that were never treated, and water stains beneath the leaking windows. I've used the "Lifeline Wood Renew" from Perma Chink to wash 3 of the walls to date, and was very pleased with the results, and the water stains are gone. I then stained and glossed the walls with Perma-Chink products and they are beautiful as if my 1987 home had just been built.
