Frequently Asked Questions
I love the rich warm tones of oiled teak, but how often should I have to oil my furniture to keep it that way?
How often your furniture needs oiling really depends on the amount or degree of exposure it is subjected to outdoor conditions. If your furniture is under the shade most of the day, say under a patio cover or lanai, then it would probably be more than 6 months before you really need to thoroughly re-oil your furniture. If however, your furniture is placed in an open area, totally exposed to the weather (sun, rain, etc) then you would probably need oiling about once every 2-3 months. Except for the occasional yearly oiling, if at all, ‘oiled’ teak furniture placed indoors or in an enclosed area (not exposed to direct sunlight or rain) is virtually maintenance free. See Teak Care for oiling procedures.
