When I bought my home in 1991 there was a bow in the wall. The sweet, elderly lady who sold me the home that had been in her family for over 120 years said beneath the plaster was the original log store that her great great grandfather had built in 1867. So I got a sledge hammer and knocked off the plaster.

So my living room is logs-- old, old logs. They're really dried out and collect dust like nobody's business. Is there a way to care for them so they will last another hundred years?


I'm guessing from the age of your home they are square logs. The best way to clean them up would be to corn cob blast them. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help.
