PRESSURE WASHING SERVICES
Pressure washing is a system that uses water applied at high pressure to clean your home. Pressure Washing is often the quickest method of removing mildew, dirt, dust, pollen and other substances from your home before staining.

MEDIA BLASTING SERVICES
At times when stains, dirt, mildew and other old finishes need to be removed, we use a technique called media blasting. This procedure uses tiny grains of corn cob to gently strip away the outermost layer of the logs to give it a clean, fresh, slightly textured surface. The newly cleaned logs will then be ready for the application of stain.
Media blasting makes removing stain from log and wood structures easier and faster than ever. Because it uses only dry media, no water is forced into the wood. Dry time is eliminated and stains, chinking and caulking can be applied immediately afterwards.
Media Blasting is the most environmentally safe way to strip a home.
These products are only recommended for when you are looking to have fresh new look to your home. As mentioned above the media blast will change the surface of your wood to more of a textured look. Because of the time, equipment and materials involved this process is a higher price point than just cleaning.
