This is the primary reason why customers opt for padded table protectors. This padding helps a great deal in safeguarding your expensive furniture from a large number of daily hazards, which include random scratches, spilling of liquids on the wooden surface, damage from moisture, constant dust settlement and warping due to extreme heat.
Padded table protectors prevent your tables from being seriously damaged by preventing scratches. The pads used in such protectors are thickly padded with a material that allows a firm surface to place items on, while making sure that friction does not result in the deterioration of the surface finish.
The topmost layer of protector consists of a water-resistant fabric, which plays a crucial role for the primary protection of your table against potential water damage caused due to accidental spills or leaks. This is especially important, since this is a frequent occurrence in household gatherings. The liquid constituting the drink can seep into the wood of the table and begin to weaken it internally. This can end up attracting termites, mold and mildew, which can destroy the table, if left unattended.
These covers also come with a layer of insulation and a top covering of vinyl. This covering not only adds a smooth finish, but also acts as an extremely effective protector against damage caused by heat. A sudden spilling of ash from a cigarette may leave an unsightly burn mark on an otherwise pristine table finish.
