Description

It’ good to know that…

Teak Deck Maintenance

Teak wood itself is made up of hard and softwood elements and whilst teak is very resilient it is very easy to drag out the softwood elements leaving ridges of hardwood. If cared for correctly a teak deck will wear naturally and should not require overhauling for between 10 – 15 years.

We like to wash it regularly as you would with any deck with water using only a soft brush.

Once or twice a year it we recommend to clean your teak boat decking  with a specialist teak deck cleaner.

It is also worthwhile to inspect all your caulked seams as these can become worn over time – and you don’t want any moisture penetrating between the deck planks, so it is important to fix any worn or damaged caulking.

What NOT to do;

Don’t use high-pressure cleaners, they will blast out the soft wood elements of the teak leaving ridges and will force you into prematurely sanding your teak decks.

Don’t use hard brushes or household cleaning detergents as again these can damage the soft surface.

Teak Deck Treatments

It is natural for teak to turn a silvery grey colour and for many, this is the traditional way to leave teak decks. However as you would do for your precious wood furniture, also your deck neet to be nurished to keep the teak looking like new and with a freshly sanded colour.

There are a number of options for teak deck maintenance:-

Traditional Teak Oils :- We don’t like using oil on a deck. You have to regularly reapply it as it only lasts between 1 and 3 months and if it turns grey you are into a messy job of using teak strippers.

We recommend a product called Semco, On freshly cleaned (dry) teak we like to apply two coats. Then depending on wear and tear you can expect to apply a further coat every 3 – 8 months.

The other main advantage is that Semco will protect your decks and any dirt or spillages will simply wash off with a hose. You will find that you won’t have to use a brush to clean your decks and therefore the wear and tear on your teak decks will be considerably less as a result.
