Pool Table Maintenance: Keeping Your Table in Top Condition

Pool Table Maintenance

Pool tables are a great addition to any home, but is pool table maintenance hard?

At Tredway Pools, we know they provide hours of entertainment and a focal point for social gatherings. But, just like any other piece of furniture, pool tables require regular maintenance to keep them in top condition. 

Thankfully, our experts are here to give a few easy tips to make sure your pool table maintenance is as easy as possible. 

Cleanliness is Key to Pool Table Maintenance

Keeping it clean is the first and most essential aspect of pool table maintenance. Dirt, dust, and other debris can quickly accumulate on the felt surface, causing friction and slowing down the balls.

Brushing off the surface after each use with a soft-bristled pool table brush will help prevent any dirt from penetrating the felt and causing damage. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to suck up any loose dirt or dust that may have accumulated on the surface.

Avoid using harsh chemicals or cleaners if there are any stubborn stains on the felt. Instead, gently blot the area with mild soap, water solution, and a soft cloth. 

Always ensure that you remove any excess moisture from the surface to prevent any water damage to the felt.

You should also keep food and drinks off the pool table itself to help protect it.

If you want to utilize the table in more than one way, consider purchasing the three-in-one option with a pool table, ping pong table, and dining table. 

Regular Maintenance

It’s essential to conduct periodic maintenance on your pool table. 

The first step is to check the level of the table. A pool table that is not level can cause the balls to roll off course and affect gameplay. To check the level, place a level on the table’s surface and adjust the legs until the bubble is centered.

Another essential aspect of maintenance is inspecting the pool table’s pockets. You can use a mild cleaner or leather cleaner to wipe down the pockets from time to time.

You can also take time to periodically wipe down the balls to ensure they are smooth and rolling correctly.

Protection from the Elements is Key to Pool Table Maintenance

If your pool table is in an area exposed to sunlight or moisture, it’s essential to take extra precautions to protect it from the elements. 

Direct sunlight can cause the felt to fade and deteriorate over time, while moisture can cause warping and swelling of the wood. 

Always keep the table covered when not in use, and consider investing in a dehumidifier to help regulate the moisture levels in the room if you have a lot of moisture in the air.

Professional Services Can be Key to Pool Table Maintenance

Finally, you can hire Tredway Pools’ professional experts to help you with any more major maintenance items you may run into, like resurfacing or releveling. 

Keeping your billiard table in top condition requires regular maintenance and care, but by following these essential tips for pool table maintenance, you can help make sure your high-quality investment remains the focal point of your room for years to come.
