Teak outdoor furniture is beautiful, durable and practical. It can be exposed to the elements all year round, which is why throughout history it has been a popular choice for the decks of ships and boats. And you can be assured that your teak patio furniture will not crack (except under normal inspection), will not splinter and, with proper care, will retain its attractive and durable qualities.

New teak furniture is a honey/brown color, the natural state of teak. They can often look polished. The polished appearance comes from the oil naturally occurring in the wood. The oil on the surface will evaporate after a few days outdoors. It is the oil beneath the surface that gives the wood its durability. When allowed to age naturally outdoors, teak furniture takes on a beautiful silver-grey colour. This process takes around 6 to 12 months depending on how much UV light and how much rain the teak is exposed to. This graying process in no way compromises the integrity of the teak. The aged character of teak suits any type of garden setting. It is popular with many because it is natural and virtually maintenance free.
Teak is a natural material. As a result, fine cracks in the end-grain grain of components can appear and disappear again as weather conditions change. Such fine cracks are normal, especially on heavier parts such as arms and legs. They will not affect the lifespan or durability of your teak outdoor furniture.

If you want to preserve the honey brown color of your outdoor teak furniture, a sealer is recommended. Teak finishes are typically solvent based and have a viscosity similar to water; they contain protection against mould, UV light and moisture. If you want a color other than natural, a variety of shades are available. Sealers are easy to apply and typically need to be applied every 9 to 12 months. If you decide to have a seal, we recommend that you visit our online offers.

Teak requires very little maintenance other than the occasional scrubbing. A mild soapy solution or a diluted soap and water mixture can be used to remove accumulated dirt. Afterwards it should be rinsed with clear water. Light rubbing with a degreaser is recommended to remove grease stains. Here, too, it should be rinsed with clear water.
If you want to remove the silver-grey patina and restore the original color of the furniture, use a teak cleaner that you can purchase from us.
Teak is a durable wood that can be used for both indoor and outdoor furniture. Proper care is important to keep your teak furniture looking beautiful year after year. We recommend keeping your teak furniture clean and dirt free. It's easy to wash them to avoid dirt build-up and keep your furniture fresh and clean. We like to compare caring for teak furniture with caring for your car when it's outside: if you keep it clean and cared for, it will last longer.

How your teak should be cleaned:

What you need
Medium to soft bristle brush (sponge is fine too)
Water supply (garden hose works best)
A gentle solution that does not attack the teak (we recommend our teak cleaner)
dry cloth
gloves (optional)
The 10 easy steps to cleaning your teak furniture
Remove all upholstery and non-teak, including leaves and other debris.
Rinse the furniture thoroughly with a hose on medium. Do not use strong pressure as this will damage the wood.
Mix a small amount of the solution with water in a bucket.
Dip the brush into the mixture, then gently begin scrubbing your furniture.
Start with a small area to ensure the solution does not damage the teak.
Scrub with the grain, not against it.
Be sure to scrub gently between the cracks and in the corners as well.
Brush thoroughly but not too hard to avoid damaging the wood.
After cleaning, rinse off the solution and allow the wood to dry.
Use a drying cloth or let it dry in the sun.
Always make sure to rinse off the solution completely. Drying can take between 24 and 36 hours with natural drying. Never use harsh, harsh, or two-component acid solutions as they can compromise the integrity of the teak furniture. Any kind of finishing product for teak furniture, such as A finish, such as a sealer or special coating, should be applied to clean, dry furniture.

Cracking is completely normal in all types of wooden patio furniture, including teak. Some people don't mind some cracking, others prefer it not to be present. If you're in the latter group, you should wait at least three months for the furniture to set before sealing the cracks. After three months, teak garden furniture is considered to be hardened and no further cracks should appear. Now you can repair the cracks in your garden furniture.
You will need: PVA outdoor glue and 180 grit sandpaper (you can also use 120 grit sandpaper).
Apply a few drops of glue to your finger.
Apply the adhesive to the tested area.
Wipe off excess glue. Ideally, he should only lag behind at control.
Wait for the glue to become slightly tacky (about 15 seconds).
Grind the affected area until the grinding powder no longer penetrates the ribbing and seals it. Sand the wood in the direction of the grain.
If your teak garden furniture is already as weathered as this in the photo, you will find that when you sand it down, it will regain its typical golden brown colour. However, over time, it is bleached by the sun and the repair becomes invisible.
