As with everything we invest in, it is important you regularly clean it and follow a duty of care. If you like the silvered it is still important to feed the timber to minimise cracking and splintering. We use a fantastic Australian brand called Cutek. This is a penetrating oil that will help protect the timber from the inside (once it soaks in), while allowing it to ‘silver off’ on the surface. For everyday cleaning, you simply use water and a mild detergent with a soft bristle brush to remove any stubborn grime. If you wish to maintain the integrity of the timber, we use a product called Cutek (more details found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JK0ENtp5__k&feature=youtu.be). Once applied, you simply clean with a wet cloth and mild detergent, periodically reapplying the Cutek (which is very simple and easy to do).

Osier Belle does provide a Teak maintenance services if you do not have the time or unsure what to do. Simply contact us for more information.
