Cleaning Teak Garden Furniture

Teak garden furniture is a fantastic choice for all patio furniture if you do not wish to spend the time required to clean the garden furniture. It consists of an extremely warm golden brown look to it when it is first made and eventually it will fade to a more silver-ash-grey over time. Teak garden furniture is extremely strong and resilient and so doesn’t need extre cleaning or indeed additional waxing.

The cleaning of teak outdoor garden furniture for the most part is extremely simple. All you have to do is simply make sure that you from time to time brush the wood off, make sure that nothing is attached to the wood that could harm it. If you need to clean the wood itself, simple soapy warm water is the first cause of action. Being as mild as possible is key to making sure you do not ruin the wood. Although for the most part garden furniture made from teak is extremely resilient. Also be sure that if you are to apply a polish or a varnish or any other kind of teak sealer afterwards to make sure that you let the wood dry thoroughly first or the attempts will not work.

There are special teak cleaners that you can actually use if you need to perform a more abrasive clean if you have spilt something a little harsher on your outdoor garden furniture. These teak garden furniture tables after time turn a silvery grey colour which is a part of teak’s charm, however these abrasive cleaners to some degree might help in restoring it to its former warmer golden colour.

The silvery grey look of the teak which is extremely popular these days isn’t an instant occurrence, it happens over time and you will have to wait for the weathering of this garden furniture to occur to establish the silvery colour. This is of course completely your preference of teak outdoor garden furniture.

Garden furniture made from teak does not really require polishing at all, it is completely fine without it, however if you prefer the initial warm golden tones compared to the silver it will become in the sun, teak sealants when you acquire the item are generally a must, application regularly will help to prolong the colouring of your garden furniture.

Teak does extremely well in all weather conditions and is extremely strong, hence not need the sealants as must for your garden furniture. However, to help prolong its life even further, it would be advisable to not allow water to collect around the legs, this really will shorten the life of the teak table which is not completely resilient to rot and the other elements it may face.

Teak furniture is an excellent choice then for any garden. It is the perfect choice compared ot a lot of the other softwoods or composite woods often found in flat packed furniture. Essentially, these are not real woods and are more glue then anything else, apart from them being extremely harmful to the atmosphere they are also not very sturdy at all and for the most part are not very reliable or long lasting. This makes them a generally expensive item to buy outright in the beginning but also not a long lasting. They are generally also softwoods, so if they need to be cleaned they generally take on a lot of the dirt that they are afflicted with. This makes them a very poor choice for garden furniture, and also quite useless at lasting the ages if you ever want to clean the wood. This also results in them needing to be garaged of put ina shed for winter as they will not last the wold weather, this is in complete contrast to teak furniture generally known as sustainable-furniture.
