Fine Teak Sanding
In some cases, light sanding may be required to remove deeper stains or blemishes that have appeared on your wood. If this is required our pros will use fine-grit sanding techniques to gently remove all contaminates. Once completed your wood will be perfectly prepared to accept a Ph Balancing treatment and fresh stain and seal.
One of the most important treatments we provide for regular maintenance is that of applying a new coat of penetrating & toned sealers. The deep sealing features of our sealer will protect your wood from the inside out while resisting the sun’s harmful rays. Your furniture will be dry to the touch and ready to use within 24 hours.
