Sunlight The Arch Enemy of Pool Table Cloth
It’s time for more Pool Table Maintenance Tips from DPT!
In short, when it comes sunlight and your pool table, over exposure over a period of time will fade the cloth very quickly.
If you do want to have your pool table in an area that receives ample sun light, then it is important to invest in a cover that will protect it when not in use. This may seem obvious, but if you are fortunate enough to live in a sunny climate, you only have to be out for a few hours to see the effect it has on your skin if not properly protected. The cloth on your pool table is no different, not to mention the potential it has to bleach the colour of the wood itself.
For the more dedicated pool enthusiasts out there, you could go the extra mile and look in to installing windows that are specially designed to block out UV light, failing that, good old fashioned shutters or blinds will do the trick too.
For those of you who are even more fortunate to be able to have a pool table in an outdoor setting, then it is worth investing in one that is specifically designed and treated for outdoor use. The weather hardy DPT Outback Pool Tables are fine examples of such tables.
When it comes to preserving your table, the bottom line is; treat it with care to get the most out of it for many years to come.
