Ensuring the Longevity of Your Teak Furniture: Seattle Wood’s Maintenance Plan

Hey there! At Seattle Wood, we’re all about making sure your beautiful teak pieces not only look amazing when we first restore them but also stay in top shape for years to come. We get it – teak furniture is a big investment, and we’re here to help you protect that investment with our comprehensive maintenance program.

The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Teak furniture is gorgeous and durable, but it does need a bit of TLC to keep it looking its best. Many folks wait until their furniture is looking pretty rough before seeking help, which often leads to higher costs and more extensive work. By taking a proactive approach to maintenance, you can avoid the dreaded cycle of deterioration and restoration bills.

Let’s face it, from an environmental standpoint, teak wood is a precious resource. Did you know a single farmed teak tree can yield around 30 chairs? Unfortunately, not all teak is farmed responsibly, and old-growth harvesting is a serious issue in parts of Asia. That’s why maintaining your teak furniture is not just good for your wallet but also for the planet.

Our Maintenance Plan

So, how does our maintenance plan work? Let’s break it down:

Initial Restoration: When you first bring your teak furniture to us, we give it a thorough restoration. This might involve deep cleaning, sanding, and applying protective finishes tailored to your furniture’s specific needs. Think of it as a spa day for your furniture.

Ongoing Maintenance: After we’ve brought your furniture back to its former glory, we offer a twice-yearly maintenance plan. Here’s what that looks like:

Spring Cleaning and Setup:

  • Timeframe: April, May, and June
  • Service: We clean and prep your furniture for the outdoor season. This includes a detailed inspection, minor repairs, and applying protective finishes as needed.

Fall Cleaning and Storage Prep:

  • Timeframe: August, September, and October
  • Service: At the end of the season, we clean the furniture again, perform necessary maintenance, and get it ready for storage. This ensures it’s protected from harsh winter conditions.

And if you need it, we can also store your furniture during the cold-wet season in dry, indoor storage.

Benefits of Our Maintenance Plan

Cost-Effective: Regular maintenance is way more affordable than sporadic restorations. For example, a twice-yearly visit at around $300 per visit ($600 annually) is much cheaper than paying $2,500 or more to restore a furniture set after three years of no maintenance. Regular upkeep prevents weather damage from getting out of hand. The furniture on your patio is no different than the teeth in our mouths in terms of the protection they need.

Protects Your Investment: Whether your teak furniture is budget-friendly or a high-end luxury set, regular maintenance keeps it looking beautiful and functional.

Customized Care: We tailor our maintenance strategies to your specific furniture and its environment. This includes using weather-resistant finishes, minimizing exposure to harsh conditions, and adjusting our services based on what your furniture needs.
