Cleaning - A requirement before the sealing and chinking process -- removes ultra violet damage, mold, and mildew, dirt, graying, weather stains and old sealers -- through removal of cleaning product and tannic acid (cedar) to ensure that that wood will not reject the sealant.

Chinking - Notice the upper left where the logs have been left unchinked. Wind can easily blow rain between the logs and rot the log wall from the center on down. This log's shrunken gap is a highway for insects! Chinking decreases your home's vulnerability to insects, decay, water and drafts.
