Purchase a brush
In order to properly brush your Pool table, you need to purchase a nylon or horsehair table brush and a rail brush. Go for the best quality in order to avoid damaging the cloth of the table.
Always brush from the same side
You have to take into account a number of factors while brushing a Pool table. One of the most important rules is to always brush the table from the same side. A simple way to remember the side to start brushing is to always brush from the side you break towards the end where you rack the balls.
Exert enough pressure on the brush
You need to exert just enough pressure on the brush to get rid of dirt, lint, chalk and debris from the table. However, make sure that you do not press the brush too hard as to stretch the felt (cloth of the Pool table). If you will stretch the felt, it will get loose and may expire earlier than expected.
Sweep the debris
The debris needs to be swept in any one of the pockets. You can now use vacuum to take the debris out of the pocket. Apart from that, you can also vacuum the debris directly off the table after brushing it into a corner.
Use vacuum for lint and fine hair
Simple brushing may not pick up lint and fine hair from the table; therefore, you would have to use a vacuum cleaner for that purpose. The suction of the vacuum should be lower than normal or you will end up stretching and pulling the felt.
