Application of care products
BioMaderas Terrace oil with UV protection: In addition to an oil that penetrates deep into the wood and protects the decking element, this decking oil also has UV protection that intensifies the wood color and preserves it longer. In addition, a fine, water-repellent layer forms, which counteracts the washing out of the natural color pigments of the wood. It should be applied thinly with a lint-free cotton cloth immediately after laying the teak elements, without leaving large areas with standing oil. You will achieve the best effect if you repeat the treatment once a year on your dry and clean wooden terrace.
BioMaderas Terrace protection: This wood preservative has been specially developed for the requirements of a wooden terrace. It effectively counteracts the formation of algae and fungi and leaves the wood in its natural state. It should be applied to the wooden surface with a large brush or paint roller immediately after laying the terrace elements. The terrace protection is also suitable for use after fungal and algae infestation. The affected area should first be sanded down and cleaned before the agent is applied. You will achieve the best result if you repeat the treatment every one to two years on your dry and clean teak terrace.
BioMaderas Terrace cleaner: The patio cleaner effectively removes dirt and black spots on the teak elements. It is applied to the swept surface with a watering can or a spray bottle. After 10 to 15 minutes exposure time, the patio elements are scrubbed with a root brush and rinsed with a garden hose and clean water. This application should be repeated if necessary. The cleaning effect usually lasts two years.
