I just pressure wash the wood as needed. It seems to clean up fine. As for chewing, if all edges are covered properly in metal stripping, it's not so much of an issue.
Other products are nice however as you can get them in different colours and it makes for a light and airy feeling barn.
Oh, I have to second the one response who said that those mesh type stalls are loud and messy. I worked at a place for 3 years that had those. Some of the horses find it terrible amusing to rake their teeth over it over and over. If you feed a mash, it gets stuch in the little holes and makes a heck of a mess. But they do look nice and add great air flow.
