A few general important tips are to keep your shuffleboard table out of direct sunlight, which can have an adverse effect on the wood itself but can also cause problems with the silicone spray that you use on your shuffleboard table.
Most Manufacturers will suggest that you clean and wax your shuffleboard table at least once a month, this is whether you use it or not. This is because things such as dust and nicotine can coat the surface of your table even when you are not using it and cause problems with the surface.
A good clean should clean contaminants such as nicotine as well as stripping a residual silicone spray off the surface allowing you to get a good clean for the shuffleboard wax to go down on. Once the shuffleboard table is clean you should use a shuffleboard wax that is made specifically for your table surface.
