How To Protect Teak Dining Tables

Teak has long been celebrated for its durability, elegance, and robustness, making it an ideal choice for high-quality dining tables. 

However, to maintain its exquisite beauty, a teak dining table requires some care. 

Here at Mr. Teak, we understand the value of preserving your teak furniture's timeless appeal. This guide provides insights into safeguarding your teak dining table and ensuring its longevity.

Teak Dining tables

The perfect communal centrepiece for any garden furniture set, a teak dining table is a sophisticated and timeless addition no matter the shape, size or style of your garden. 

Our teak dining tables are carefully crafted from grade A ethically sourced teak, and are naturally weather resistant, requiring minimal upkeep.

Protecting Your Teak Dining Table

Teak is an exceptionally resilient hardwood, resistant to rot, pests, and the effects of weather, making it an ideal material for both indoor and outdoor furniture. Nonetheless, taking preventive measures to protect your teak dining table can significantly enhance its life and keep it looking its best.

Regular Cleaning

Regular cleaning is essential to maintaining your teak table's surface. Use a mild soap solution and a soft, non-abrasive cloth to gently wipe away dust, spills, or grime. Be sure to thoroughly dry the table after cleaning to prevent watermarks.

Use Protective Covers

If you have an outdoor teak dining table, consider using a protective cover when it's not in use. This will guard against dirt, dust, and weather damage, ensuring your table maintains its original charm.

Our PVC weatherguard table covers are perfect for keeping your garden furniture dry in wet weather.

Seal Your Table

Applying a teak sealer can help protect the wood from stains and sunlight damage. It also enhances the wood's natural oils, maintaining the table's lustrous finish. We at Mr. Teak recommend reapplying the sealant annually for optimal protection.

Avoid Abrasive Cleaners

Abrasive cleaning products can damage the surface of your teak table. Instead, opt for natural, gentle cleaning solutions specifically designed for teak furniture.

Consider Positioning

Avoid placing your teak table in areas with excessive sunlight or near heating units as extreme temperature changes may cause the wood to warp.


While teak is a robust and enduring hardwood, a little extra care can go a long way in preserving its natural beauty. By following these tips from the team at Mr. Teak, you can ensure your teak dining table remains an elegant centrepiece in your home for years to come.
