Contrary to popular belief, teak furniture does not
require any special maintenance routine or any
additional protection apart from occasional
cleaning. Left to age naturally outside, teak will
gradually change to a soft, silver-grey as the
pigments in the surface layer of the wood begin to
fade away. We recommend that you allow your
teak furniture to weather naturally this way and
simply clean thoroughly once or twice a year with
Teak Cleaner.
Teak furniture may also benefit from an
occasional light sanding to remove any raised
grain and restore a smooth finish to the surface.
Under no circumstances should a power washer be
used to clean teak furniture.

If you intend to store your furniture over the
winter, we recommend that you do so in a water-
tight garden shed or garage. However, we advise
that you do not move teak furniture from the
garden straight into a heated indoor room for
storage, as the sharp differences in temperature
and humidity may cause the wood to split.
To protect teak surfaces from staining and to help
maintain the silver-grey patina on weathered teak,
we recommend using a Teak Stain Protector. Our Teak
Protector creates an almost invisible shield which
helps to prevent food (coffee, ketchup, red wine,
olive oil, etc.) penetrating into the teak and
causing unsightly stains. Teak Protector also helps
protects the wood against the ingress of moisture,
the adhesion of dirt and prevents mildew growth
