Could be a climate thing then or doesn't have constant water contact. But teak isn't completely waterproof, and will get eventually get moldy if soap scum is left on. I just spray mine down with the wand if soap gets on it. If it constantly has water hitting it, the natural oil and wax can dry out, so that's why they sell the oil to rub it down with, to replenish it I guess.
