Caring for Your Teak Furniture: A Guide to Long-lasting Beauty
At DecoTeak, we take pride in providing teak shower benches and bathroom furniture with a water-resistant factory finish. As time passes, this finish may naturally wear down and lose its luster. To extend the life of your DecoTeak Woodland Brown or EcoDecors Natural EarthyTeak finishes, we recommend the following simple steps:
After each use, spray the benches with clean water to remove any soap or shampoo residues. Some products contain harsh chemicals that, if left on the shower furniture, may degrade the teak wood finish.
Periodically clean the benches with a neutral pH cleaner, free from harsh solvents. Our Loveable EPA Safe Choice Teak Wood shower furniture cleaner is specially designed for this purpose. We suggest using it once a week, or at least once a month. Don't forget to clean the underside of the seat, as soap and shampoo can find their way there too.
If you notice the factory finish beginning to fade, consider using our Loveable Teak Oil. This product helps moisturize, clean, and provide a water-resistant coating, rejuvenating the appearance of your teak furniture.
For those who prefer homemade solutions, a gentle mixture of 2 tsp dish soap in a gallon of warm water can effectively clean our CoastalVogue DriftWood and Coquina Gray finishes. Avoid using teak oil on these finishes.
Dealing with Bathroom Mold and Mildew:
Rest assured, teak shower benches, shelves, and bathroom furniture do not promote mold growth. However, mold is a common bacteria found in moist environments like showers and bathrooms. Our teak products, much like bathroom tiles and grout, can provide a surface where mold may attach and grow. To prevent mold growth, regular cleaning of the teak shower furniture is essential, and our cleaners and teak oil can help in this regard. Should you encounter mold stains, our enzyme-based teak mold stain remover offers an eco-safe solution to efficiently clean your wood products.
At DecoTeak, we believe in providing you with both exceptional products and caring support, ensuring your teak furniture retains its beauty and durability for years to come.
