Once or twice a year it is recommended you clean teak boat decking with a specialist teak deck cleaner. Follow the manufacturers' directions and make sure you gently scrub across the direction of the grain.

The reason we do not recommend pressure washing when cleaning teak furniture is that the fine stream and high pressure can cause the surface of the teak furniture to become bumpy and pitted. Once that happens, the teak furniture will have to be sanded to return the surface it to its natural smooth finish.
Cleaning Weathered TeakCleaning teak furniture once a year with with a soft bristled brush and soapy water will remove most accumulated dirt. For tough stains and mildew, add one-part household bleach to two parts water to create a soap solution. Be sure to rinse well with clean water after washing.
