Question:


We are in the process of building a new log home...like others the exterior logs inside and out have dark runs, black marks, etc...i have used a bleach solution 50/50 and a sponge...is there a better way to do this...very time consuming and the house is 2300 sq ft. Someone said use power washer...others say don't.. please help.....

Answer:

DO NOT use bleach or power wash. You could sand the marks out or get a contrator to corn blast with a very fine grit to remove the marks. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help.

We are grinding the exterior of our new spruce logs and we keep reading that we need to pressure wash the logs with 1:5 (bleach:water) and one tablespoon TSPafter grinding. But what is the total volume to dissolve the TSP? Do we even need to use bleach on freshly ground logs?
