Performing furniture maintenance slows the natural aging of the wood and preserves the original honey color. Exotic wood oil contains substances that make it resistant to moisture and temperature change. Teak furniture covers with silver-gray patina over time, which by many owners is indeed desirable. For example, in the English gardens, we can see patina covered teak benches which perfectly fit into the natural and raw style of English gardens.
In order to preserve the natural appearance and extend the life of furniture, we recommend oiling at least once a year. We should use the specially designed teak oil. Before starting the oiling, teak wood should be properly prepared. Furniture should be washed thoroughly with clean water and soap or a special detergent for exotic wood. You can also lightly sand the surface with sandpaper furniture. This allows you to remove the silver-gray patina and any other debris caused by everyday use of furniture. We recommend that in the winter furniture were stored under a roof, in a room with suffusion ventilation, away from direct heat. Durability of teak wood may last over 75 years.
