Our daughter has recently purchased an older log home in Vermont. Its not in the best of shape and needs tlc. The worst problem is the smell – not a musty smell – just stinks. We have washed the interior with Murphy’s Oil Soap and its a little better. They had a leak in the plumbing but that has been cleaned up. Any suggestions on what to do; whom to call??? The smell is getting to her and us!Appreciate your help.
First thing I would do is get a mold expert in to make sure that is not a mold issue. You might want to get a company like Service Master in to get some recommendations for cleaning the smell. Next option is to sand the entire interior clean and apply a couple of coats of good quality log home stain and clear coat to seal them.
