Should I power wash the interior of my log home?

For Exterior Use Only

You might try power washing your log home's interior, but you probably won't enjoy the results. Seriously, power washing is only for your log home's exterior. The interior surfaces are not critical, since they see no exposure to extreme weather.

To avoid damage to interior areas, power wash the logs in the yard before they are shipped to the job site. If it is not possible to clean the logs in the yard, it should be done early in the construction cycle at the job site.

Using a 1500 PSI Power Washer at Extremely High Pressure is not advisable or necessary since you rough up the surface making your logs look “fuzzy” or “hairy”. This will not affect the performance of the stain, but it could make neighbors point and giggle when they pass by.
