We are considering buying a 1990 log home. Current owner is BIG smoker- will smoke odor stay in logs? What could we do to eliminate it? We are very new to log cabins. Thanks for any help!


Not sure if you can get that smell out. You might have to sand and wash with a strong disinfectant.

I cleaned the interior logs of my house using a bucket of water/log wash (perma-chink product), and a rag. I wiped the interior logs down with the water/log wash mixture, then followed it with a rag in a clean water bucket. It took away a lot of dirt. The logs came out much cleaner and ready for the interior stain.
