Question:


I AM WORKING ON LOGS WITH BARK ON A CEILING THAT WERE INSTALLED WET, METAL WAS APPLIED TO CATCH FALLING SAP, METAL WAS REMOVED AND MOLD AND WHITE MUSHROOMS HAVE GROWN. SUPPOSED TO SEAL OVER BARK FOR PROTECTION, WORRIED ABOUT DISCOLORATION BECAUSE OF MOLD GROWTH AND HOW AND WHAT TO USE TO REMOVE W/O CAUSING FURTHER DAMAGE.

Answer:

Wow, I would say you better remove the bark and sand them. There is probably mold spores under the bark that will cause problems later on if left and stained over. We have wrapped logs with bark after treating them with borate.
