Teak Furniture FAQ
What is the best way to refinish outdoor teak furniture?
Teak master’s “Clean, Sand, Brighten and Seal” method is the best way to refinish outdoor teak furniture. Wood should be cleaned to remove surface dirt and contaminants, sanded to expose new grain, and brightened to promote color. The wood should then be coated with a genuine teak sealer.
How often should outdoor teak furniture be maintained?
Maintenance of outdoor teak furniture should ultimately be performed whenever visibly necessary. As a rule of thumb, maintenance of outdoor teak furniture will depend on the weather patterns in the area it’s located. Generally, outdoor teak furniture should be maintained every 4-8 months.
Why does my teak furniture have drip marks?
Natural oils in the teak wood itself may be extracted with temperature change. If a protective coating has been applied, expanding and contracting of the wood or moistening due to marine layer may extract the protective coating. A simple wipe with a damp towel can usually solve this issue.
Should I use teak oil to protect my outdoor teak furniture?
Teak oil is never recommended to protect outdoor teak furniture. Teak oil is really just a made-up name for tung and linseed oil blended together – which will often turn black over time. Additionally, it has sticky properties which makes it messy to apply.
