If yer in a hurry to er done I would not pressure wash it as your whole house will smell like the back door of every farm animal that ever slept in it.

that said I always pressure washed mine with an insecticide (green eco friendly) and then let the stinky beast dry out.

The water will dry fast if the beam is in a warm dry place, and personally I like the smell of a barn but I also understand a cologne has yet to be named “Stinky Barn Beam” and been marketed successfully.

I pull off the loose parts where manure can stink, caught under an old chunk, chipped and missed by the fine art of timber framing, pressure wash…….keep yer eyes open lookin for animal shit

let dry, sand the raised hair off, and finish with what your comfortable with
