Furniture Care - Teak

What options do I have to protect my teak furniture from stains that can come from food and wine?

To protect the furniture from stains and mildew and to keep the graceful silvery-patina of the weathered teak, we recommend the use of Westminster’s Teak Shield. This will protect the applied areas from spills such as red wine, coffee, or olive oil.

If your furniture is already stained we recommend using our Teak Cleaner and light sanding with 120 grit sand paper to fully remove the stain.

I love the rich warm tones of oiled teak, but how often should I have to oil my furniture to keep it that way?

This depends on the amount or degree of exposure 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 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.

Can I leave my furniture outside in the rain, sun, and snow all year round?

Absolutely, however, as with all natural materials, the more it is exposed to the environment, the more it will accumulate dirt. Further, subjected to the sun, rain, or snow, the surface of the teak will gradually weather into a soft-silver gray as only the pigments on the surface layer begin to fade. This will not in any way compromise the structural integrity of your furniture.

Can I stain or paint my teak furniture?

One of the unique characteristics of teak is its inherent high content of oil. This distinctive property makes it difficult for paint to adhere to its surface; over time, through changes in temperatures and the seasons, the paint will crack and peel. Painting may also have a secondary impact on the teak wood itself. The wood surface may not have the ability to now “breathe," due to the sealing characteristics of the paint, and may start to develop mold and mildew in the areas where moisture is absorbed through the cracks and peels of the paint over time. This is why we do not recommend painting your teak furniture. Like paint, stain is another form of sealant, though there are types that would allow the teak to “breathe.” Please consult a wood paint specialist to ask a suitable type for your application, i.e. indoor or outdoor. More often than not, the use of a sealant such as stain, oils or varnish, are better suited for indoor use where the furniture is not subjected to the effects of the outdoor environment.

How do I care for my teak furniture?

The short answer is that teak needs no care or special maintenance regiment. Untreated, natural teak (without oil) will weather to a handsome silver patina within a year or so, depending on the amount of sun and weathering it is exposed to. The use of mild soapy water and a soft brush or pad will clean away any accumulation of dirt. Finish by hosing it down with water. Depending on the environment, you shouldn't have to do this more than twice a year. Over the years, your furniture would weather gracefully. If mold and mildew are a problem then use a 1:4 salt water solution to kill off persistent mold and mildew. For best results, we recommend the use of our Teak Cleaner.
