The two homes pictured below show before and after examples of corn cob cleaning.

log home before cleaning

BEFORE – A dark, solid stain covered this log home. We were asked to remove the stain and replace it with a more natural, semi-transparent stain.

AFTER – Corn cob cleaning proved an effective way to remove the old stain and give the logs a fresh start. From here, a wood preservative can be applied followed by any shade of stain.

log home before washing

BEFORE – This log home had become darker through natural aging. The black streaks created by exposure to the sun and rain give the logs an almost burnt look.

AFTER – We were able to remove all of the dark and streaky features using the corn cleaning method. The natural look achieved is much more pleasing and will greatly improve the overall look of the house.


Our log home looks like new!
