It’s true that teak garden furniture doesn’t need much maintenance for its usage. However, there is something you can do to maintain the beatiful color of a teak garden furniture, and also making it more durable. The methods are not hard, all you have to do is keep applying the methods continuously and you’ll be guaranteed to have your teak garden furniture shine in its golden color.
The first thing you have to do is decide whether you want your teak furniture to preserve its natural golden color, or let it age naturally to a silvery color. This step is conducted when you purchase the furniture. If its the second option you wish to have, then all you have to do is wipe off the natural oil that’s contained in the wood as much as possible and eventually you will get your silver colored furniture. If not, then you should just ask your retailer for a natural teak wood furniture and don’t wipe the oil off.
Often times, your teak furniture may turn grey in time. If you don’t want that to happen, you can sand the furniture to rid it of the older parts of the wood that will cause it to become grey. Once you’ve sanded it all down you simply need to wipe it over with a wet cloth and begin oiling the furniture. To ensure your teak furniture continues to exude its beautiful golden colour you will need to keep repeating this sanding process. The cleaning and oiling process on the other hand, is not conducted as often. This should be done once in a couple of months. In some areas where the weather is unpredictable, it is recommended that you don’t use your furniture for a longer period than this. Don’t worry about the upkeep of your furniture to such an extent as every couple of months, as long as you keep doing it around twice a year and continue to do this, it should maintain the golden colour.
Whichever color of wood you desire, whether its the natural gold, or grey/silver color effect, you should always clean your teak garden furniture set regularly, as this will play an essential role in prolonging your wooden garden furniture’s life. An old cloth and soapy water is enough to get rid of the grubby stains accumulated over the months. If you want to preserve the colour of your teak it is also recommended to add a brightener onto the wood after you’ve cleaned it to enhance the overall appearance of your furniture.
