Teak Deck chalking

My teak deck is 10 years old. My problem is the black sikaflex chalking is making our feet black and staining the white parts of the coach roof should we walk on it.
Is there any quick fix solution??

Re: Teak Deck chalking

If seams are proud above teak, you could sand them down to fresher Sikaflex. But you would only be buying time.

Next time around I would recommend using TDS. My opinion from past experience.

You can shave off the caulking using a chisel, but it won't stop the black tracking. Ditto the previous post, use Teak Decking Systems caulk next time instead of Sikaflex.
