Default Log home mold

Does anyone know anything about log homes? Ushally Im dealing with fixing problems on older homes.A ho called me the other day with a black mold problem on a log home.He want's it powerwashed and a clear coat applied.The thing is this home is only 4 years old.Could this be a problem with a poor quality stain from the factory? Has anyone run into this before?It just seems odd to me that on a house only 4 years old has such a big problem already

Could be a crappy factory job, or it could be that they are just in a high mold area due to other reasons
4 years wouldn't be out of line out here
Would be great, actually
And some ideally located (not) houses must be cleaned every year

You've not as much a location problem in your area as I do, but pretty close
Even "inland" in your state is still pretty close to the water, and much more humid than say...Montana

I don't see any log homes out here myself, but I'd call or e-mail Sikkens
...maybe even just visit their web site, maybe there's some info there
Their tech advice (and products) is (are) top notch, and they have products specific to log homes so I'm sure they deal with this a lot

wash it, brighten it with something acidic to help reduce future mold, put some sickens on, and sell him on house washes from you every year.

I visited the home today and what I found was that the orignal finish has worn off in places and the wood has weathered.It's not a mold problem. sikkens has a program at my paint shop where they will visit the property and advise what to do.My fix was to use Benjamin moore restore 316 then benjamin moore neutralizer 317 and apply a new stain. Slickshift the house is in new bedford .I'm mass and RI I have a house in westport I will be workng on next week Can't wait to get there to enjoy the view Tsunami I will fit that in my plan I guess owning a log hone is a lot of maintainance Good for the contractor not the home owner
