Our teak wood products are 100% certified. Mostly SVLK (some FSC), meaning that the full process in manufacturing is registered and monitored. Guaranteeing the sustainability of the wood itself and the plantation. Scratches, dents, cracks, knots, is inherent to the natural product and these do not have an impact on the life span. Normal use of the product will result in small cracks (hairline cracks) and openings appearing in the wood; this does not detract from the quality or the life span of the table, but to the contrary is characteristic of the charm of this product.
Before using any maintenance product on teak you need to make sure the surface is clean and dry. You can use our special LIFE Outdoor Living teak cleaner. Do not use any aggressive detergents or pressure cleaner. To clean more easily you can use the aluminium sponge. It is important, when using this sponge, to move directionally along the grain.
Note: As Teak wood is an naturel product it has to ‘breath’. Do not cover teak with a protection cover to prevent moulding.
To protect your teak wood product against stains and marks, we recommend to maintain the product at least three times a year. Weather influences will make the robust teak wood table slowly turn grey. If you want to prevent this, you may use the “Life Outdoor Living Vintage Teak Protector”. By using this product you will get a warm brown colour. Always test on a small surface before applying it to the entire product.
