Taking Care Of Teak
Chic Teak has been manufacturing high quality teak outdoor furniture since 1998.
Only the highest quality materials are used. These include brass, stainless steel and, of course, the highest grade of teakwood available.
Genuine Teak (Tectona Grandis) combines the quality of a rich and pleasing appearance with a durability that is unequaled by any other timber.
Teak is a dense, coarse, close-grained hardwood. It naturally contains high levels of resinous oil that acts as an insect repellent and allows it to be resistant to moisture and the drying effects of weather.
Because of this naturally high oil content, it is both stable and resistant to rotting when exposed, over many years, to the extremes of both summer and winter weather.
All teak used in our products is plantation grown and environmentally friendly.
Your Chic Teak furniture comes finished with a coat of hand rubbed wax.
When the furniture is used indoors or under cover outdoors, just apply some furniture wax every couple of months and your furniture will look brand new again.
When used outdoors, the wax coat will disappear in a couple of weeks depending on the environment.
After a rain shower it may look like there are some "dry" spots left. This is where the wax starts wearing off. To speed up this process you may just clean the wax off with hot soapy water.
After a couple of months, the teak will start turning a silvery grey. Just clean it with soapy water twice a year to keep your furniture looking good.
If you’d rather preserve its natural teak color, we recommend using Semco teak care and sealer products. Please refer to the manufacturer for instructions.
We do not recommend oiling your furniture with teak oil. This oil will attract dirt and mildew.
