Maintenance of teak deck/floor
A teak deck is in need of continuous maintenance to keep long and stay beautiful. Make sure to keep the deck free from grime and various items in direct contact with it. Carefully protect it from snow, ice and water during the period of dry docking.
In connection to the preparations done in the spring time – apply one layer of Easy Teak Cleaner to the deck, let sit for 3-5 minutes and rinse with water. The deck is now clean and ready for an application of oil if you choose to do so.
An un-oiled deck will attain a lustrous grey surface, while a deck that is being oiled gets a golden brown lustre.
Using Lefant 100% Teak Oil: Apply a generous layer and let sit for 1-2 hours, remove excess oil using a cotton rag, wiping across the joints/grouts. Wiping along the joints will wear the wood more than the joint, eventually making it concave. When applying oil to the teak deck, it is important that the weather is dry, even a couple of hours afterwards. Don’t forget that the used rags can ignite!
