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 customers' preferences.
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.
