Teak Maintenance in Orange County

After you’ve had teak refinishing in Orange County done, what do you do next?  The answer depends on a few factors. Let’s start with decking.  Once a week, it is a good idea to sweep your deck with a regular broom or a dust-mop.  When you sweep, don’t bear down on the broom and sweep from the center out to the outside edges.

After any pollution advisories or dust storms, it’s a good idea to rinse off your deck with a garden hose.  Don’t use any high pressure hoses, however, as this can potentially damage your teak.  Now we’ll cover teak furniture.


Indoor Teak and Outdoor Teak Furniture

If  you have outdoor teak furniture, and it hasn’t been refinished in a while, check the color.  If it is still caramel color, you’re good.  If it is starting to gray, you may want to refinish it.  Once refinishing is done,  store your teak furniture somewhere out of the elements, such as a shed or covered patio.  Teak furniture requires very little care if you store it.  If you keep it out, make sure that you clean it off once a week by lightly misting it, and wiping it down with a towel or clean rag.  Indoor teak is even easier.

Indoor teak furniture usually requires little to no care, except for occasionally wiping it down.  If you have a teak coffee table, however, remember that coasters and mats are important.  Food and drink stains can erode the finish on your teak, making teak restoration important.

If you have teak, protect your investment.  Take of your teak by maintaining it and doing teak cleaning once in a while.
