Why Buy Teak Furniture?
Why teak? Teak has gained quite a reputation for being sturdy and durable. Don’t believe me? Check it out yourself. Did you know that one of the preferred materials for ship building years ago was teak? If it’s good enough to be sailing the high seas, it’s good enough for whatever weather your part of the world can throw at it.
Most of the wood used in teak furniture today comes from Indonesia and Thailand. These are tropical rainforest areas so the teak trees are grown and matured under varying environmental conditions. For this reason they have become resistant to harsh conditions and this carries through to your furniture.
In addition, teak is more or less impervious to attack by insects and rot. This amazing property is due to the high concentrations of natural oils which repel insects, mold and fungi. These oils are present in both living and dead trees, so they are definitely present in your teak furniture. This is extremely good news for unfortunate homeowners who have shelled out lots of money on other wooden furniture only to have it collapse under them, literally.
There is one thing that you must be aware of though. While you’ll have your teak outdoor furniture for years to come, you will need to maintain it. One thing that no type of furniture, can fight is the build-up of moss. This is unsightly and downright dangerous if it gets too slippery. Not to worry. Your furniture can be easily cleaned with good old-fashioned soap and water. That’s about all you need to do with your teak outdoor furniture so maintenance is a breeze, and it looks great and it lasts a really long time.
