Log Wash™ is a pH balanced, liquid concentrate for cleaning log and wood surfaces. It can be used as a maintenance cleaner or to prepare the surface of wood for a new coat of stain or topcoat.
Log Wash is a pH balanced liquid concentrate for cleaning log and wood surfaces. Use Log Wash to prepare the surface of bare wood for an initial coat of stain and as an annual/semi maintenance cleaner.
For preparing the surface of bare wood for a new coat of stain, Log Wash removes dirt, grime, pollen, and surface mold and mildew without harming the wood or the finish. High pH bleach solutions, common household cleaners and even mild dishwashing soaps which may soften finished wood surfaces potentially damaging the wood finish. Log Wash does not upset the natural pH balance of the wood, thus preventing wood fiber damage and iron tannate stains. Log Wash does not require the use of a pressure washer but only a garden hose and sprayer attachment for rinsing which is better for your wood. The exterior of a log home is a settling ground for dust, pollen and other airborne contaminants that dull the surface and encourage mold growth. A light cleaning once or twice a year will keep a home looking beautiful and helps prolong the life of the exterior wood finish.
Please note: While Log Wash is excellent for use on bare wood, Perma-Chink Systems suggests using Wood Renew to remove mill glaze which is prominent on half log siding, evident on most full logs and some deck wood. Log Wash will not remove graying in wood. If you are applying Perma-Chink Systems exterior finishes to new, bare wood with extensive mill glaze, use Wood Re-New to remove mill glaze and to restore weathered wood to so as not affect the PCS exterior warranty. For homes on which Perma-Chink Systems wood finishes will not be applied, please refer to X-180 Weathered Wood Restorer, All Wood Cleaner and KleenStart.

Bleach solutions can remove the natural wood color, damage the surface of the wood fiber and can create iron tannate stains that are difficult or impossible to remove. Using bleach to clean wood may produce a chemical reaction with the outer wood fiber forming a film that can cause some paints and stains to not adequately penetrate the surface. The lack of penetration causes adhesion problems and can result in stains and paint separating from the wood surface and failing. Bleaching wood can also result in streaking and striping of the stain or paint applied. Log Wash™ can be used to prepare bare wood for a new coat of stain or as a maintenance wash. Log Wash™ removes dirt, grime, pollen, surface mold and mildew without harming the wood or the finish. Log Wash™ cleans the surface of wood without upsetting the wood’s natural pH balance.
Plan on cleaning small areas at a time since Log Wash™ needs to stay wet in order to do its job. Remember, apply Log Wash™ from the bottom up, and rinse it off from the top down. This will help prevent streaks and drip marks.
