It depends on the look you are going for. I have sent hit-and-miss planed old barn timbers with nice effect. It cleans them up a bit, but leaves some of the weathered color, and most of the character.

I would not pressure wash it – which could splinter the wood. If you want it to keep the rustic look, I would just wire brush it and seal it.
