Burmese teak is a type of very strong, weather resistant wood that is grown in Myanmar. Burmese teak heartwood is a uniform golden brown without markings. Grain is usually straight to slightly wavy. Texture is coarse, uneven and oily to the touch, sometimes with a white glistening deposit. It is also called the "King of woods".

It gives an aesthetic appeal and royal look to your furniture. It gives any desired finish and smooth polish on the surface. It is easy to handle, polish and work with so a lot of carved designs can be made. Teak wood is hard, thereby making it resistant to termite. It is immune to white ants and insect attack. Teak wood has elasticity and solid fiber, each facilitating woodworking and enabling wood workers to create a broad spectrum of products. Teak wood is very strong and durable and thereby requires minimal maintenance. Daily care such as cleaning with cloth can make your teak furniture have a long life. Re-polishing is recommended after a few years to bring back the shine to the furniture.
Care & Maintenance
Place door mats or rugs on the inside and outside of doorways. This will help to trap dirt, grit and other abrasive materials, preventing damage to the floor through scratching, grit becoming embedded and reducing dust.
The quickest and most efficient way to clean the hardwood floor is to use a damp mop, either a vee sweeper or a push mop. A little extra water will do no harm occasionally for deeper cleaning, as long as the floor is properly sealed. Never use a wet mop, excessive surface water can cause the finish to flatten, and may eventually penetrate and damage the wood.
Wipe up any spill as soon as they occur using a damp cloth. Taking quick action can prevent any staining of the finish or the actual wood.
