log home restore/stain


hi

purchased a log home built in 1950

has not been stained/treated in 10 yrs
old owener used a varnish on exterior and there is some mold spots/some dry spots/some where varnish is holding up well

i want to clean mold and all logs to re-varnish

should i use bleach and water on ALL areas and then stain over with 2 coats?

dont need it to look like a million-just wanna keep it standing

thanks for any ideas

john
