To help prevent damage, monthly cleaning and maintenance of your outdoor furniture is recommended.
To clean outdoor teak tables, use a non-metallic brush to gently scrub the surface of the wood in the same direction as the grain. Do not use too much force. After cleaning, use a hose to rinse off the teak furniture with water.
Don’t use a pressure clearer as it may damage the wood. After cleaning, pat the wood dry with a towel and let the sun dry up the remaining moisture. If this does not remove the mould, some light sanding may be required.
- Our outdoor teak products are unsealed
- Store in a dry place during the winter or rainy months.
- When cleaning, never mix chlorine bleach and ammonia-based cleaners which creates a dangerous chlorine gas
- Expensive or antique furniture may need to be treated by professionals, especially if the mould and mildew growth is extensive.
- Since mould is caused by too much moisture, there’s a good chance mould-infested furniture will be damp. Dry out by sitting in direct sunlight for several hours before starting to clean.
- Please note the location of the furniture and the surrounding elements will play a part in the mould/mildew forming/reforming.
