A pool table is a great thing to have, whether it’s in a bar, rec room, or your game room at home. But to really enjoy the use of your pool table, it needs to be in good shape. No matter how well you treat your pool table, it will still need some TLC from time to time. A pool table service will dramatically improve your table and increase your enjoyment of the game.


But how do you know if you need pool table service? Let’s find out.


How often do you use it?

The frequency of pool table service depends on how often you use it. If the table is in a public space, like a school rec room or a bar, you’ll need to service it more often. A constant stream of people with varying levels of experience will put your pool table through noticeable wear. If, however, your table is in your home, you can go longer between services. Fewer people are using it, and they are more likely to know how to avoid damaging it.


Is there any noticeable damage?

It might seem obvious, but noticeable damage means it’s time for pool table service. This damage can include rips in the felt, cracks in the slate, issues with the rails, or an unlevel surface. No matter how well you treat your table, gentle wear and tear will contribute to larger issues over time. A professional can repair these issues and make your pool table good as new. It’s also a good idea to have someone check your table periodically to ensure there’s nothing wrong that you haven’t noticed yet.


Have you moved it recently?

Moving a pool table can affect it in ways that you might not notice right away. Whether you moved it from one room to another or into a new house, a professional will ensure that your table is still in good condition. For bigger moves, it’s best to have a pro move the table for you, especially if you have to disassemble it to get it from one location to another.
