How to Maintain Your Teak Garden Furniture

Whilst teak garden furniture doesn’t take much maintenance at all, some people do like to maintain their teak to keep it a beautiful golden colour. However, even this maintenance is simple and easy as long as you know how.

Firstly, when you purchase your teak garden furniture you’ll need to decide whether you are going to preserve the natural golden colour or let it age naturally to a beautiful silvery colour. If you do wish your furniture to establish this silver colour then by wiping off natural oil that the teak wood will produce as often as you can will speed up the process.

If you don’t want the teak furniture to go grey, then 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, cleaning and oiling process every couple of months. However, particularly in the UK, with the weather being so unpredictable, you may not 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.

Regardless of whether you are opting for the golden or the grey coloured effect for your teak you should regularly clean your garden furniture set as this will play an essential role in prolonging your wooden garden furniture’s life. Soapy water and an old cloth should be suffice to get rid of 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.
