Square Teak Root Coffee Table: Tricks to Protect Dining Room Furniture

Teak is valued for its attractive color, resistance to natural elements, and renewability. Old teak trees grown mostly on plantations supply the long, clear planks with few knots used to produce high-quality teak furniture.

Teak, unlike many other wood materials, requires little upkeep and is extremely long-lasting. Your teak furniture will last for many years if properly cared for.

Keep the Surface Safe

Even though teak is a hardwood, use a tablecloth and table cushion to protect the surface for family meals and padded placemats for the occasional snack or coffee break. Sharp pencils on paper can mark the surface of a robust cardboard underlay during schoolwork or creative sessions.

Use non-breathable or plastic covers on your teak table to avoid mold and mildew growth. If you must use a plastic tablecloth, take it off as soon as possible to allow the table to breathe.

Cleaning and Restoring Teak Furniture

To clean the surface of your teak table, use a moderate soap and water solution, such as liquid dishwashing soap. It is sufficient to dilute a few tablespoons of detergent in 1 gallon of warm water. Remove stubborn filth with a light scrub brush and rinse the area with a clean, moist cloth. Allow the artwork to completely dry before adding sealant.

Resist the desire to coat ancient teak with oil while refinishing it. Instead, sand the wood with fine 150-grit sandpaper to encourage the natural oils to flow from the inside. After sanding, clean and dry the table well before applying a sealer.

Polish and Shine

You may believe that teak oil should be used to polish your dining room table. Teak oil, on the other hand, is a blend of light varnish and other compounds, not oil of teak. Indoor teak furniture should not be oiled, especially food surfaces such as dining room tables. A teak sealer, on the other hand, helps to keep the golden hue by decreasing surface oxidation caused by air contact with the wood.

If you must oil your furniture, choose natural Danish oil rather than teak oil. Danish oil is a penetrating oil that soaks into the wood rather than being applied on top of it. With a soft towel, completely remove any excess oil. When finished, your teak should be dry to the touch and not moist or oily.
