The logs on my home are in good shape and to keep in good shape, what type of maintainence routine should I be following. I would like to do it myself. Central oklahoma, no fungus, rot,or insects at this time. House about 10 years old, I have owned for past 4 years. Thanks.

Karen:
You should clean the logs about every 3 to 4 years with warm water and TSP or Simply Green. Wipe the logs down with a damp rag from this mixture. You can rinse with a rag and fresh warm water if necessary. You need to apply a clear coat with a UV blocker after the logs dry. Some stains have a topcoat that has some pigment to it. This will help keep your home looking good for years to come.
