Many consider teak furniture to be most beautiful when it is unfinished in its natural state. In fact, what attracts most people to buy this type of furniture is its natural honey blond look. If you are interested in keeping the most natural appearance of your pieces it can be serviced to keep it that way. Teak cleaning is a technique to keep the wood looking its best without application of a protective coating and not allowing it to weather gray or oxidize. However, sometimes owners allow their furniture to weather and oxidize to a natural gray appearance. To achieve a clean and uniform gray appearance, the surfaces must be cleaned periodically to remove surface contaminants. This is also considered a form of teak furniture cleaning. The wood has oxidized but it is still unfinished in its natural state. Both of these techniques have become increasingly popular in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego over the past few years because they are cost effective and beautiful.
Cleaning Technique for Natural Unfinished Appearance
The natural honey blond look of your furniture will gradually fade when it is outside unprotected. To keep the wood from oxidizing without applying a protective coating in order to keep a natural appearance starts with a thorough cleaning. We begin our teak cleaning technique by gently washing the wood with a proprietary cleaner to remove oxidation, weathering, black mold, and contaminants. The surfaces will be washed by hand to remove these impurities with specially designed brushes to get between each and every slat. Our brushes are soft and special attention is given to preserve the grain. The wood will be washed with wood brightener to promote the natural color and help eliminate and prevent black mold and algae. The wood will be allowed to dry for 24 hours and it is ready to use thereafter.
Cleaning Technique to Promote a Natural Silver and Oxidized Appearance
Maintenance consists of periodically performing the same teak furniture cleaning procedure. Your investments will stay looking great all the time when we establish your maintenance schedule. Beach cities such as Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, and Malibu will need maintenance more frequently than inland cities in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. Maintenance should be performed at least once a year or whenever necessary depending on your microclimate.
