The teak outdoor furniture has become a popular choice among many homeowners. The teak wood has the durability, a quality that is truly suitable for outdoor purpose, in addition to the beautiful buttery gold color. The high content of oils and rubber that occurs naturally serves as weatherproofing, making the wood can stand up to water, insects, and rot for long-lasting furnishings.

Caring for Teak Outdoor Furniture

Regular cleaning, at least once every year, is required to maintain the teak outdoor furniture. This regular teak outdoor furniture care is to remove dust, dirt, and stains. You can do this yourself with a bristle brush and a diluted household cleanser. If you have no idea which detergent to use, ask your vendor as it will depend on the type of finish chosen.

You will need to decide to oil or not to. Oiling does help maintain the color, but it promotes mold and mildew. Consider where you’ll place the furniture to make the right decision. Placed in shaded area, your teak furniture may not fade as quickly as it’s placed in full sun. Therefore, weigh the risk of mold developed on your teak outdoor furniture versus visual effect wisely when deciding to oil or not to oil.
