How long will my felt last?
If the pool table is used daily for four to six hours you can expect your billiard cloth to last about 3-4 years. You can prolong the life of your cloth by brushing your table regularly and even using a small handheld vacuum is good to remove all of the chalk that settles into the cloth. Remember, keeping your pool table covered is the best way to protect and preserve your felt.
How do I brush my pool table?
The best way to brush your pool table is to stay in one direction. This will keep the nap of the cloth uniform. It is also okay to use a small handheld vacuum cleaner to help remove any chalk dust that has settled onto the slate bed. A lint roller is also a lifesaver for dark cloth colors or pet hair and is safe to use.
Is it okay to move my car pool table without taking it apart?
99% of the time the answer is “NO”! The only exceptions are in a situation where there is a large opening that the table can be moved out as a whole. You should still consult a professional before moving your pool table yourself. Even tables in these situations can be damaged if they are improperly man-handled. If you ever need to move or relocate your car pool table, give us a call and we can help!
How long should my cushion rubber last?
Generally, 20-30 years, although some cushion rubber lasts longer. If the pool table has seen direct sunlight, cushion life will be greatly reduced.

There should be 32-36” between the bottom of the lamp and cloth on the slate.
When should I replace my cue tip? (How can I prevent tears in my cloth?
You should check your cue tip regularly for wear. When the leather tip wears down to the thickness of dime it is time to replace it. By keeping your tip in good shape, you will not only get consistent play but also prevent small cuts in the cloth from miscues.

Yes! Many Car Pool Tables are placed upstairs. The pool table is probably as heavy as three or four big men.
What are billiard balls made of?
Modern, high-quality billiard balls are made of pure phenolic resin. Lower quality balls are made of polyester or other polymers. Resin balls last longer, clean easier, and prevent burn marks in billiard cloth. Ivory balls are extremely rare and have not been used for decades for ethical reasons.
What do I do? I spilled my drink on the pool table cloth!
Remember that prevention is key. You should not eat or drink near your pool table. But, if you do find yourself in this situation, act quickly. Absorb as much liquid as possible with clean dry paper towels. The longer the liquid sits, the more it will stain the cloth.
