Having a clean and well rinsed surface is more
important for staining than many people realize.
Any stain needs to penetrate into the surface of
the wood to provide the most effective and
durable seal against the elements, and any dirt,
mold, or other substances prevents stains from
forming a proper bond with the wood. Without a
clean surface for stain to soak into its effective
lifetime is greatly reduced.
We use a combination of cleaners and chemicals
depending both on the type of wood we are
cleaning, the stains we are working with, and our
A home that has been stripped of old stain and cleaned
thoroughly. Notice the 'bare' appearance of the logs;
this is the ideal surface for stain application.
