Teak is a tropical hardwood tree species placed in the flowering plant family Lamiaceae. Some forms of teak are known as Burmese teak, Central Province teak, as well as Nagpur teak. T. grandis is a large, deciduous tree that occurs in mixed hardwood forests
Teak such as with this Wine Cabinet – Single Drawer Dark is a close-grained hardwood with high natural oil and silica content. It is one of the hardest, strongest and most durable of all timbers, highly resistant to any rotting and almost impervious to the effects of hot sun, rain, frost or snow. Teak Lumber requires little or no maintenance regardless of the environment. These characteristics combined make it the ideal timber for all outdoor applications, and it has been the choice of boat builders for centuries. Once seen primarily on elegant yachts and in the most extravagant estates, teak wood is now a premium wood of choice for designers of hotels, corporate headquarters and upscale homes. Apart from its natural beauty, teak is one of the most valuable of all woods.
Caring for your Teak product
Regular cleaning of your teak will help prevent mildew build-up and potential discolouration. A quick wash with mild soap and water and some bleach or vinegar mixed in usually does the trick. Make sure to use a soft plastic brush as metal brushes can scratch and damage the wood’s surface. Some harder to clean stains can be removed with a store-bought teak cleaner. When cleaning your teak, always start with the most mild cleaning solution.
