Teak outdoor furniture is exquisite, strong, and useful. It won’t twist or warp if left out in the elements. Additionally, you can be confident that your a-grade teak patio furniture won’t crack (aside from typical maintenance), splinter, or serve as a termite’s haven! Teak will retain its attractiveness and durability with proper maintenance.

Polish Your Furniture

The natural color of new teak wood furniture will be a honey/brown shade. They frequently have a polished appearance. The oil that naturally occurs in wood gives it its glossy sheen. After a few days in the open air, the oil on the surface will evaporate. The oil beneath the surface is what gives the wood its tensile strength. 

Teak outdoor furniture will become a lovely silver gray tint if allowed to age outdoors naturally. Depending on how much ultraviolet light and rain the teak is exposed to, this process will take between 9 and 12 months. The integrity of the teak is unaffected by this graying process. Any form of garden setting is suitable for teak’s aged appearance.

Retaining Original Colors

A sealant is advised to retain the honey/brown color of your teak outdoor furniture. Teak sealers are often solvent-based and have a water-like consistency, with mold, UV light, and moisture protection. 

If you desire a color different from the natural one, you can choose from a range of colors. Sealers are simple to apply and should be done every 6 to 12 months. If you decide to use a sealer, we recommend going to a nautical store and purchasing specialised teak sealers (normally used on boats).

Cleaning Your Furniture

Apart from the odd scrub, teak takes relatively little care. A moderate soapy water solution will eliminate any accumulated filth. After that, rinse with clean water. A mild scrub with a degreasing chemical is recommended to eliminate oil marks. This should be followed by a clean water rinse.

To remove the silver-gray patina and return the furniture to its natural color, use a teak cleaning from a maritime store.

Storing For the Winter

Teak furniture may be left outside uncovered all year, regardless of where you reside. Use a material that allows the wood to breathe if you decide to cover your teak furniture during the winter. When storing your furniture for the winter, avoid storing it in a warm room. 

Heat can cause the wood to dry out and break. Teak wood expands and contracts with time and weather changes. Some joints, such as the slats on the backs of chairs, are not glued. The fasteners may need to be tightened from time to time.
