THE BASICS:   TEAK furniture, especially outdoors, can be a story of tragedy.  It is an exotic oily wood God-made to resist hordes of insects, and torrential tropical weather.  Without it's protective natural "bark" it reacts differently in our North Carolina environment than it would in the tropics.  It is a living and breathing organic substance that is attacked by the elements of our environment, foreign to its natural habitat.  That is why All-Things-Wood is here, to help with the special requirements needed to care for TEAK.

TRAGEDY STRIKES:   Outdoors without its natural bark, even the smallest amount of dust and dirt become a "fertile garden" where mold-spores can breed rapidly.  Fertilize near by plants or even your yard and the nutrients drift over, causing the mold garden to double.  Additionally, the oil in the wood wicks to the surface to feeds the black spores of mold while the mildew etches your treasure gray -- or more exactly - the appearance of "salt & pepper".  Cover it with a protective plastic cover and it only grows more rapid.  On-going days of moisture adds green slick algae to this tragic story.  Often a well intentioned home-owner cleans the furniture with a degreaser.  Void of oil on the surface, the wood quickly tries to heal itself by sending a flood of oil to the surface.  Rinsed by a garden hose, the surface oil turns to an uninviting "band-aid" of white / yellow wax.

Decks with the best quality woodRESTORATION BEGINS:  Cleaning, restoring and sealing your Teak furniture can take anywhere from 90 minutes to 6 hours per piece of furniture.  This is based on how severe the damage and gray is, how many slats there are, do you want under-cushion slats treated, how large the item is, do you want the bottom treated, what tone you want it to be, and how many coats of protecting sealer you desire.  The color is increased by multiple coats of sealer -- from 2 to 12.  (no more than 3 coats can be added each day, with light sanding in between coats)  

Refinishing Teak Furniture is a unique and arduous craft that can take up to 6 hours
