Log Blasting

Also known as media blasting or sandblasting, it is a specialized cleaning and surface preparation technique used primarily for log homes and structures. It involves the use of compressed air or other methods to propel abrasive materials, such as sand, walnut shells, or glass beads, at high speeds against the surface of log walls or timbers. The abrasive particles effectively remove old finishes, dirt, grime, and other contaminants, revealing the clean and natural wood underneath.

Log blasting is often employed when a log structure requires significant restoration or when the logs have been subject to years of weathering and wear. The process not only cleans the wood but also helps to prepare the surface for subsequent treatments like staining or sealing. It can be particularly useful in cases where traditional cleaning methods, such as power washing, are insufficient to achieve the desired results.
