March 28, 2008, Newsletter Issue #109: Defuzzifying Wood

Tip of the Week

You've had a fuzzy tongue, you've used fuzzy logic, maybe you're memory has been fuzzy. But fuzzy wood? Yes, it happens. Fuzzy wood is what results when you use a caustic cleaner on wood. In some cases, using a cleanser in your pressure washer can leave you with this result, so you may want to hire a professional for your house pressure washing. You see, the fuzziness is evidence that the caustic solution has broken the natural glue in the wood, called lignin, that holds wood fibers together. To de-fuzzify your wood surface,you'll need to use a sander or defurring tool to remove these fibers. Unfortunately, a quality conditioner will not help at all.
