The best protection for your pool table is a heavy-duty cover, which can be purchased at our store, online, or from a technician at installation. This will protect your table from dust, animals, and sunlight. Sunlight is damaging to the finish and rubber cushions and will discolor the felt. Keep in mind that anything you put on the top rails (furniture polish) can leave a residue that will likely get transferred to the felt through players’ hands. Furthermore, you don’t want to put conditioner on the leather pockets as it will transfer from the balls to the felt.
