Top Tips For Spring Cleaning Your Log Cabin

Spring is finally here, which means spending time outside in our gardens is far more enjoyable. But it’s also a good opportunity to give your outdoor spaces a bit of a spruce up, now that the weather is warmer.

So if your garden is looking a little bedraggled after the long, hard winter months, now’s the time to get the rubber gloves and the pressure washer out to give everything a good scrub down.

Pressure washers are amazing at cleaning of dirt and grime from the exterior of your cabin so give this a go and see how beautiful it looks afterwards. You could also use an oxygenated bleach, which doesn’t have any chlorine in it to get rid of mould and mildew.

Now’s the time to start thinking about giving the wood of your cabin a bit of a treat, as well, since if you don’t do this regularly, it may start to deteriorate. Treating the wood allows it to continue enjoying protection against the elements, so this is an important part of your cabin spring cleaning.

Make sure you put down ground sheets before you start treating the wood, using masking tape to protect the glass in the windows and around the hinges. Do one coat and then wait for each wall to dry fully before giving them a second coat.

There are various forms of treatment you can buy, ranging from water and solvent to oil and spirit, but you can also use pressure treating, which gives a more thorough application of wood preservatives than you would get through painting or spraying.
