High quality teak patio furniture is designed to last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. With just a little investment of time and energy you can be sure that your beautiful furniture is going to perform admirably season after season. Cleaning is the basic maintenance task associated with teak outdoor furniture although there are also steps you can take to protect the original finish from wear and tear. Terra Outdoor Living connects you with patio furniture made from teak, wicker, steel, and other premium materials so you can enjoy hassle-free outdoor entertaining whenever the mood strikes.

Cleaning Surface Dirt

Begin by clearing away any objects placed on teak furniture, including cushions. These can be cleaned separately if they need attention. To scrub teak furniture clean, follow these steps:

  • Use a product designed to effectively clean teak outdoor furniture; follow the manufacturer’s instructions to prepare the product for use.
  • You can also prepare your own cleaning solution by combining laundry detergent (with bleach) and water in a 2:1 ratio in a bucket.
  • Use a soft bristle brush to apply cleaning solution to the furniture’s surface. Gently scrub the surface to loosen stuck-on dirt or grime. Be sure to clean on the underside of tabletops and chair arms.
  • Rinse furniture items thoroughly with clean water. Dry with a clean cloth or allow to air dry naturally.

This is all there is to cleaning your outdoor teak furniture.

Improving Furniture’s Appearance

After a season of frequent entertaining and furniture use, you might discover that your teak items are not looking as pristine as they used to. You can add a little refinishing product to correct some of these problems. Once your furniture is completely dry, use teak sealer to coat the furniture according to product instructions. This will help protect the furniture’s beautiful glowing finish.
