    TeakTeak has a natural tight grain with thick fibers which mill evenly without chipping or splitting. Growing in demanding climates, withstanding monsoons, droughts, high winds and more, makes teak a highly suitable wood for use in challenging environments. Teak has been used in shipbuilding for hundreds of years because it requires little maintenance, is naturally water resistant, decay and insect resistant, and has a natural non-skid, antibacterial surface. Teak’s characteristic gleam requires no oil or varnish, it is also natural.
    Burmese Teak Teakworks4u premium Teak made of pure heartwood from mature Teak trees grown in the Indonesia/South East Asia region. Heartwood Teak provides an elegant piece with unique grain patterns and a beautiful rich color giving any area an immediate WOW factor. The high silica content in teak makes it an ideal wood to use when a slip resistant surface is needed and the natural oil makes the wood resistant to mold and mildew.
    Plantation Teak Teakworks4u FSC certified Plantation Teak comes from trees harvested from an actual plantation of younger Teak trees. Since they only use the heartwood of the tree, it has all the same qualities of old growth Burmese Teak but it is a little lighter in color.
    Teak Maintenance While teak is naturally resistant to bacteria and mildew, soap residue, minerals or other impurities from your water may start to form some build-up. Therefore Teakworks4u strongly recommends performing routine cleanings each time you clean your shower or bathroom or when you notice some build-up. Remember that teak has a slip-resistant surface, but a soapy build-up can compromise this, so it’s important to clean the surface regularly. To keep your piece looking new, we recommend a deep cleaning at least every 3 months or more depending on use.
    Quick Cleaning Apply water with a soft bristle brush (a mild soap solution can be useful as well) and lightly scrub the teak surface as well as the underside. Then rinse the teak surface with clean water and allow to air dry.
    Deep Cleaning You may want to consider Teakworks4u Teak Cleaning Kit, TeakClean. This kit includes everything you'll need, including 10 cleaning tablets, scrubbing brush, gloves and teak oil. Otherwise, we recommend a commercial teak cleaner to remove any mildew or discolorations that have accumulated. These cleaners won’t strip the wood of its natural oils and non-slip characteristics. Teak cleaners are available from a variety of sources including boating supply stores, home centers or directly from Teakworks4u.
    Weathered Teak If you would like to restore teak to its original finish, it can be done with a little work. You will need to lightly sand the piece using commercial grade sandpaper. 80 grit sandpaper is recommended to start with and moving up in grit as desired. You will begin to notice the original teak color restored. Then remove any dust and apply teak oil to the surface.
