I wish that I could say that summer is the season when Indiana log homes look the most beautiful…but honestly, they always look great. However, it is in fact the time of year to bring some guests to the over for entertaining. And as most homeowners know, there are few greater joys than seeing people marvel at the very sight of your beautiful residence. With the growing popularity of log homes throughout the Indiana area, we thought it was appropriate to share some insights for complete care, including ideal processes and products.
A good pre-treatment is essential to the health and vitality of the logs. The main reason for this step is so the treatment can slow the drying of logs and prevent cracking.
Insecticide, termiticide, fungicide application
A quality application will kill insects such as termites and boring beetles once applied to the wood. It’s important to remember this necessary precaution, as these pesky insects can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of beautiful logs and drastically reduce their life span. Shell-Guard, a Borate Glycol Wood Preservative is a popular choice for professionals. The glycol system allows the application to spread deeply throughout the wood, where the most threating organisms dwell.
Mold and Mildew Removal
Over time, mold and mildew rot and break down logs, costing homeowners severe headaches and financial stress. While periodic cleaning is regarded as the best preventative measure, we’re all human and some issues can fly under the radar. It also doesn’t help that Indiana living comes with some punishing wet seasons. Mold and mildew with happen. It’s just a matter of what you do about it.
Typically the best choice is a light cleaning at least twice a year. Make sure to pick a cleaning solution that won’t upset the pH levels in the wood, preventing unwanted staining.
With great beauty comes great responsibility. Log homes are breath taking in general, but unfortunately they are also settling grounds for dust, mold, mildew and other harmful contaminants threating the health of logs. Pressure washing is the easiest way to keep things looking great and prevent any unwanted growths.
