Maintenance and Treatment of Solid Teak Furniture.
Our furniture is untreated, because most customers prefer
it this way. If the furniture is left outside throughout
all seasons it will develop a silvery-grey patina which
actually helps protect the wood.
But furniture, which is left outside, does get dirty from
air pollution, algae etc. Therefore, it should be cleaned
at least twice a year in soap water, and for heavily polluted
furniture we recommend using KIRCODAN CLEANER.
If you wish to recreate as much as possible of the fresh
teak colour you may do so either by a light sanding or,
even more easily, by treatment with KIRCODAN BASIS
CLEANER. If the furniture is kept under cover it
patinates much more slowly; but all wood fades with time
when exposed to light. A deeper golden colour can be obtained
by regular treatment with KIRCODAN TEAK OIL.
Our extension tables should not be left outside in rainy
weather. If these tables get wet, the pull out mechanism
may jam, even though we have added extra tolerance in the
groove guides to absorb wood expansion. They will work again
when the timber dries out.
Textilene is an open weave synthetic fabric. UV and meldow resistant, highly durable and
maintenance free. Wash only with brush or sponge and a light soap and water solution and let dry naturally.
A reproduction of natural rattan of a synthetic composition requires no maintenance other than washing with light soap
and water solution.
HPL Table Tops
HPL or high pressure laminate consists of layers of specially selected paper impregnated with thermo-setting synthetic resin
and pressed under heat and very high pressure. The surface layer is melamine-based resin to give high resistance against
abrasion, shock and impact as well as heat and discolouration.
