Question Cedar Plank Ceiling Water Stain Removal

I have a high (40') and large (60'x40') cedar tongue and groove ceiling built in the late 60's that has sustained about 15% water seepage discoloration over many years. In trying to remove the damage and refinish them, I have had soda-blasting recommended by the insurance adjuster but painting contractors say that expense is not necessary. I don't know what my options might be. This is my first post so I might not have included necessary details. Any ideas?

Most times with cedar, and your high ceiling, a light sanding of the damaged wood may be all you need. Try one board and see, if it isn't up to your liking, brush some clorox on the complete board on a sunny day, and rinse when dry, and see if your stains are gone. Blasting on cedar isn't a good idea, as the softwood is soft, and will be blown away, leaving hardwood ridges, much like a piece of driftwood. Let me know how you do...
