With all the rain we’ve been getting over the past week in Southern California, many of our customers are asking if there is anything they should be doing to safeguard their teak furniture. The short answer is “nothing”.
As long as you perform regular annual or semi-annual maintenance to your teak furniture, including the application of a marine-grade penetrating sealer, your teak furniture is prepared to withstand downpours and hold up against the strongest UV damage. It is only with furniture whose sealer’s protective qualities have degraded, that you need worry about the effects of water and sun on the wood itself.
Many of our residential customers see the obvious benefits associated with regular teak maintenance, and ask to be contacted at least once per year to have such a service performed at their home. Almost all of our commercial customers are on regular maintenance programs so that their teak is always looking its best and is always properly protected. These maintenance programs do pay off in times like these when outdoor furniture is exposed to the worst that Mother Nature has to offer.
