Interior log wall found . Home is 100+ yr old. Cleaned off paint and plaster from them. Can they be further cleaned with Murphy's oil soap? There is no finish on the logs. Will be sprayed with sealer as you have recommended. There is 6"-8" of block wood between logs. Grip strip and permanent chink to rechink? What email address may I use to forward a pic?


You do not want to use Murphy's if you are going to apply a finish. Try Osborne brushing them to clean. If that doesn't work they may need to be corn blasted. I recommend the Perma Chink interior products for a finish.
