CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Learn how to properly take care of the wood, felt, cushions and pockets of your pool table to make it last for years to come.


Cloth -
There are many types of cloth the billiard industry has to offer. Regardless of the type of cloth you have, the goal is to keep it dry and out of the sun. If you can do this, the cloth on your billiard table will more than likely out live manufacturers recommendations. The best way to keep the cloth safe from these elements is to cover the table with a quality cover.

The cloth on your pool table also has something to do with level. Most types of cloth have a nap to them. This can be seen on close inspection. This nap, if left to it's own devices, will cause the ball to roll off it's natural course. To keep this from occuring, a little lesson in brushing the table is in order. Here is how you do it:
Using your table brush, brush the table's play surface in one direction and in straight lines. It does not matter which direction as long as you always brush the table in that direction. I like to brush a table in the breaking direction. This prevents you from brushing the table backwards and standing the fibers of the cloth up. The goal is to get them to lay down flat giving them less chance to effect the balls natural roll.

This trains a pattern in the cloth and does take a few weeks of regular brushing to complete the process.

Cleaning the cloth on your pool table should only be done with your table brush. While there are liquid cleaners on the market, I do not recommend them. Also if you see lint or dust on the cloth do not use a vacuum. This will stretch the cloth on the table and cause it to become loose causing wrinkles, will raise the nap causing the ball to roll unnaturally and will damage the fibers of the cloth reducing its durability and ability to be reused.

Pockets -
Most pockets on pool tables are made of leather. Whether they are 100% or veneered leather, the care is the same. Wipe these down with saddle soap to clean them follwed by a good leather conditioner to keep the leather moist and avoid cracking. This can be found at saddle shops or fine shoe stores. Do not get saddle soap or leather conditioners inside the pocket. Only apply it to the outer surface of the pocket. When finished playing, we recommend you store the balls in the pockets. This helps them to maintain shape and will keep them hanging straight with the table.

If you get a knick in the finish on a pocket, matching shoe polish will take care of most blemishes. To avoid this, do not use the top side of the pocket to bridge your cue. The friction of the pool cue sliding across the pocket will take the finish right off.

Cushions -
The cushions on a pool table are much like the wood used to make it. There are things that manufacturers do that hamper long term cushion quality. Both in the materials used as well as the application practices. The best thing you can do is cover the pool table when not using and keep a dehumidifier in the room. Moisture is certainly not for them. Also, do not sit on the rails of your pool table. This may lead to breaking the cushions off of the wooden rail.

Wood -
There are many types of materials used in general cabinetry for pool tables. 100% wood, wood veneers and plastic veneers are most commonly used.

If your table is made from solid hardwood or wood veneer the care is the same. A basic furniture polish will work just fine. Keep in mind that oil residues will track onto the cloth. Apply the polish of your choice to a cloth and do not openly spray it onto the wooden surface. This will avoid damaging the cloth. Any oily residue left behind after polishing should be removed with a clean dry cloth. Doing so will help keep finger prints from showing up so quickly.

If your table has a waxed finish and not a lacquer finish, you will need to use paste wax. This is applied with .00 steel wool and wiped up with a clean cloth. It is best to tape off the rail cloths before appling paste wax.

If your pool table is made from plastic veneers, all you need to do is wipe it down with a clean damp rag then, dry it. Be craeful not get water on the cloth.

Level -
There are 2 types of leveling that keep the ball rolling straight. The first is shimming under the legs. This changes the pitch of the entire surface to accommodate for the floor being off level. This only works for the exact position the table is in. The second is called planing. This is done under the slate surface of the table. The purpose of planing is to get the slate surface flat. If one of these 2 practices are off the ball will not roll straight. To keep a properly leveled pool table true, do not sit on any part of it and certainly do not pick it up whole in any way.

Never move a pool table without taking it apart! At the very least you will disrupt what has been done to properly level the slate surface. We fix this all the time, and sometimes much, worse from flooring companies and moving companies moving them the wrong way!
