Pool tables can be a sizeable investment, depending on the style and quality you choose. Just as you would take care with your vehicle, HVAC system, and other large investments, you’ll want to do everything you can to keep your new pool table in top condition. It isn’t much fun to play pool on a table that has not been taken care of, either, so consider the following tips to preserve your table and gameplay experience.
- Table Brushing: Learn the right way to do table brushing, and then do it as necessary to maintain an excellent playing quality. If your billiard balls tend to drift or fade, you will know it needs brushing, but it is best not to wait until that happens. Be sure to always brush with straight strokes.
- Plan to Replace the Cloth: Regardless of the quality and how well you care for it, the cloth on billiards tables won’t last forever. With typical standard home use, the cloth should last between 5 and 7 years before needing to be replaced, provided it doesn’t become damaged and has been brushed properly.
- Moving: It is best to never move pool tables after they have been professionally installed. In fact, it will void the warranty if you do. If you need to move it or have it made level again, contact an authorized dealer.
