I am looking at purchasing a 8yr old log home 1500 sq ft. It looks good on the outside it has been stained, no black or mold but how do I keep it that way. I can't speak to the owners it was a foreclosure, also they have never stained or treated the inside however the inside looks wonderful, do I treat the inside?


The outside will require a light wash and maintenance coat of what ever product is on it (hopefully you know this information) about ever 3 to 4 years. The inside should be wiped down with hot water and TSP. If there is no finish I would recommend some sort of Interior clear to help seal the wood from dust and dirt.
