Helpful Advice for the maintenance of your Teak Deck.
- In case your vessel’s deck is in very good condition or new, it should be cleaned with a typical soap and a sponge or a soft broom. The use of a pressure cleaner is highly prohibitive because it causes damages to the soft particles of the wood, but mostly to the rubber joints.
- If you wish to restore the natural colour of your deck from its current silver-grey colour, you should use special soaps, the teak cleaners, and let them dry; afterwards, you apply a colourless teak oil (Bondeux teak oil clear) during hours of not strong sunlight.
- In case your deck is worn with layered lines on the wood and cannot be restored to its initial form with a teak cleaner, you should contact with someone who is specialised to teak deck constructions.
- How to apply teak oil: You need a brush, gloves and a cloth. You apply the teak oil using the brush per square metre, you leave it on for a while (as long as it takes) in order to be absorbed into the wood; and then you sweep out with the cloth the extra amount of the remaining oil mostly on the joints, since it cannot be absorbed from the rubber.
