CARE + MAINTENANCE

TIPS

    • Do not scrub back & forth – will cause discoloration
    • Clean entire surface area – spot-cleaning will lead to uneven shading
    • Avoid using bleach, steel wool, or hard-bristle brushes
    • To remove saltwater, hose down regularly
    • Teak turns grey from the UV rays of the sun, not from water. Keep teak in the shade if you want it to weather slowly
    • Do not use any teak cleaner on finished teak
    • Although teak itself will not mildew, dirt and other foreign substances on the wood can mildew. Mildew can also form when wet teak is covered before completely drying. This occurs more commonly in warm, humid climates. If this happens, follow the cleaning instructions above immediately to prevent stains that are difficult to remove

MAINTENANCE

    • If you choose to do absolutely nothing, and leave raw teak outside in all weather conditions, it will get a weathered grey patina over time caused by UV rays.
    • If you want to revert back to a golden honey color, simply pressure wash or use 220 grit-sandpaper. A teak cleaner can also be used to help remove any weathering, grey patina, marks, debris, or mildew.
    • Use a teak sealer (water or oil-based) if you want the golden honey look to last. The water-based product we recommended is called "Golden Care Teak Protector". Apply using a traditional household sponge or towel. One layer is sufficient every 10-12 months (weather condition dependent).
    • A secondary shield can be applied after the protector. We recommend "Golden Care Teak Shield". This water-based sealer is to be applied after the protector has completely dried. This product will help bead up any rain or liquids, preventing water marks.

CARE

Spills happen. That's why we've made cleaning our cushions a breeze!

Use bleach and water to keep them looking as good as new. Our recommendation is a light rinse with water first, then a light spray of 100% Clorox bleach. For best results, let the bleach work its magic in the sunshine for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off.

Don't worry about color damage. Our lifetime cushion craftsmanship warrantyΒ covers the use of bleach on your cushions. So, have fun and make memories with your family and friends without worrying about spills and stains. We've got you covered!

MAINTENANCE

    • Store cushions separately from teak furniture for the first year. The wood’s natural oil can stain the cushions
    • Once grey patina develops, it’s safe to store cushions with furniture
    • For best results, use furniture covers when not in use

Furniture Covers

      • Use covers made of breathable fabric
      • Use covers to protect cushions from birds & tree debris
      • Remove covers every few weeks to air out cushions

TIPS

    • Do not remove cushion covers before cleaning – doing so can damage foam inserts
    • Clean cushion from seam to seam – not just stained area
    • Treat stains in well-ventilated area
    • Avoid using hard-bristle brushes & abrasive cleaners
