Cleaning your Teak We would not advise that you clean or have your teak cleaned to often, a soft brush every once a month with soapy water should survise. Scubbing the teak to often will leave the surface grained and will eventually require sanding.

Deck Sanding We can Sand back your decks once they have become to grained. Graining is like a vicious circle ,understanding teak is part of solution. Graining is when the soft grain is taken out by over brushing leaving the surface uneven and grooved. The water sits in the grooves for longer than before making the grain soft even quicker .The only way to undo this is either new decks or by sanding and then keeping up a care regime .
Sanding is a far cheaper option than new decks.
