Home Advice Advice 2: Teak Cleaning
Advice 2: Teak Cleaning

With many years of detailing and shipwright work, Teak decks are always an issue with maintenance, to oil, varnish or to leave bare?  Owners are always misinformed about the ammount of work required once you have varnished a teak deck, this is by far the worst thing you can possibly do, as it will peel in time due to various factors and oils found in the timber, as well as UV damage, wear and tare.

The best advice I have been given by leading old school yachties who specialise in teak and the like is to leave it bare. Never oil or add any form of teak sealer on it. You just don't make any progress that will suffice for this method of protection.

Cleaning teak is relatively simple, and I have come across many detailing companies here in Australia that use pressure washers to clean decks...STOP! this grains the timber and it will need to be pulled up and replaced well short of it's life cycle. As are those that use wire brushes and rub along and down the grain to clean, the same thing, stop that right away, you may as well use a chisel at that rate! Use a soft brush and work it diagonally across the timber grain.

GRP Marine stocks the best product on the market to wash your deck with 2-3 times a year to keep timber brown, looking fresh and clean all year round. It simply is amazing and we hope to have it marketed well and stocked throughout the country. 21 stores will be stocking this product in the near future, GRP marine are moving in leaps and bounds with new products offered to yachtsmen like you, from abroad. We are competitive, the product is cheaper than current local products, more biodegradable and work as directed.

These are a few basic steps to follow to ensure your teak remains new and looking  it's best for years to come. Please ask for any other advice or queries you may have.
