Olhausen Pool Table

If you are thinking about buying an Olhausen pool table, that is exciting news! But before you go and fall in love with one, there are a few things you should keep in mind before opening up your wallet. When you buy an Olhausen pool table, you are buying elegance, timelessness, and style - things that do not come cheaply. But what you'll get is something you can enjoy for generations to come. That is, if you take good care of it. Read on for some simple tips on how to care for your new table.

When it comes to caring for your Olhausen table, there are a few things you'll need to know. But here's the good news: If you follow these tips, you're pool table will last you for a very long time. All it takes is a little effort and a little TLC. Cloth: Commercial-grade cloth will have a varying lifespan, depending on how much wear and tear it gets. Under normal use and with reasonable care, you can expect your table's cloth to last for between three and five years (as opposed to tables that experience heavy use, such as commercial pool halls, which may need to be re-clothed every six months or so). To prolong the life of the cloth, you may want to encourage those who use your table to avoid making scoop shots or jump shots, which can leave "cloth burns" or other damage marks on the cloth. If you do get burn marks on your table, often they can be removed by dabbing a damp cloth on the spot. It is a good idea to occasionally vacuum the cloth to remove the dust that has collected on the cloth, and to prevent excessive build up, ensure you cover the table with a dust cover when it's not being used. Prevent spills on the table by insisting that your friends do not use the pool table as a cocktail table. If a drink does get spilled on the cloth, absorb the liquid by placing an absorbent towel over the spot.

This will likely not prevent a stain from occurring, but it will at least minimize it. The Finish: The rails on an Olhausen pool table feature a catalyzed laquer finish on the rails, a finish that will not require much in the way of care, but the rails can suffer some damage from things like cues sliding on it, players' belt buckles or other similar items that can scratch the finish on the rails. Spray the rails with spray wax and polish with a soft, dry cloth. If you mar one of the rails, hide the scratch with a touch up marker. Pockets: The pockets on an Olhausen pool table are made of leather, which may result in variances in the colour and texture of the pockets. This is normal. It is very unlikely that you will be able to get a set of pockets that are identical. And, like other things made of leather, the pockets will scuff and may absorb natural oils from the players' hands, etc. Treat the leather with an occasional rubbing with saddle soap to prevent the leather from drying out. Note, however, that even with treatment the nature of leather lends itself to cracks as it gets worn. Finally, don't attempt to move your Olhausen pool table on your own. Remember that it has been installed in an optimal position by an Olhausen installer, and any attempts to move the table can have adverse effects on the slate, the rails, and the aprons. If you need to move the table, call Olhausen and have them come out and do it for you. Following these simple tips will keep your Olhausen pool table in like-new condition for a very long time! It is a significant investment and you will want to be able to enjoy the table for decades to come.
