When one has nice furniture, they do all they can in order to protect and preserve it. After all, good furniture is expensive, and not something that most people want to have to replace frequently. Taking care of furniture is fairly easy. It doesn’t require a lot of work, except for regular dusting and cleaning up spills. It should also be kept out of direct sunlight to keep it from fading. Tables, which are built to be strong, also need protection, and for this many people use special blankets that protect the surfaces. These are padded, and protect tables from sunlight and from scratches and other damages.
Protective table pads can be used on tables of all shapes and sizes, and they can keep tables from many different types of damages, including moisture damage, scratches, cracks, marks from glasses and other dinnerware, and more. These pads are good for those who have tables with glass tops, working much better than tablecloths when it comes to wear and tear. They are made in wood grain colors, so they will match just about any wood furniture. Pads can be ordered for tables, buffets, sideboards, and servers. They are available in many sizes and thicknesses from Superior Table Pad Co. Inc., and they can have contrasting bottom colors.
Just because these mats are used to protect tables, it doesn’t mean that they should be abused. It is never a good idea to place hot pots and pans on the padding. If it is necessary to place these items on the table, use a stand or marble slab to keep the heat away from the pad. The table should be clean before putting pads on, because the pads can pick up dirt and moisture, which can damage tables.
These table protectors should be taken off the tables a couple of times each month and aired out to get rid of dirt and moisture. Wipe them down with a damp cloth and hand them on a clothesline or lay them flat in an area where they will get plenty of air to dry them out before putting them back on tables.
