Cleaning Teak Furniture

Besides being beautiful, teak furniture is also very durable and low-maintenance. This makes it a very appealing product to its customers.

Potential customers can be wary of buying teak furniture for fear that they will need to spend countless hours sanding and cleaning the furniture to maintain its elegance.

This is simply not true.

In fact, premium teak furniture (like that from Atlanta Teak) requires hardly any maintenance at all.

A yearly cleaning is about all that is necessary to remove dirt, stains and grime.

One of the easiest ways to clean your teak furniture is by mixing one part laundry detergent or dish soap with five parts warm water. Then, using a firm brush, simply give the furniture a “once over” with the brush and you will notice that it really brings out the beauty of the wood – restoring it almost to its natural appearance.

There are teak cleaners available for sale online and at many furniture stores, but at Atlanta Teak we have found this laundry detergent mix to be both effective and less expensive.
