• Although carrom boards can be stored flat or vertically on their side, it is preferable to store the board flat (e.g. on the floor under the bed) to minimise the risk of warping.
  • Avoid leaning your board against a heated radiator, as it can cause damage to the polished surface and even result in warping of the plywood.
  • Use a soft dry cloth to clean the surface prior to each game session. Keep the surface well powdered in order to avoid damage to board surface due to abrasion.
  • Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures (hot or cold) and moisture or dampness.
  • Once in a while, after wiping off all the residual powder, spray the board’s surface with furniture polish such as Pledge, and wipe clean with a soft dry cloth.
  • Keep the surface of strikers and carrom men free from grease and dust.

  1. I bought a varnish ” rust oleum ultimate spar varnish semi gloss ” and applied in my Carrom board after 10 hours I can’t control my curiosity I wanted to play so I applied Carrom powder and cleaned the wet. I kept the striker and hit the pocket I felt that it is so slippery I scratched the place it become a hard scratch that it cannot be removed by cleaning or by hand then how to repair it and which brand of varnish I should buy for this Carrom board ?

  2. I have bought carrom board for my kids, it got scratches, any way to remove them? I got it from an online store so I don’t know if they are going to fix this carrom board. please suggest me something.

  3. Hi,
    I bought new carrom board of 16mm but sides of the board inside is very slope so if we hit side coins it will change direction due to slope isuues in board
    So kindly provide any suggestions…

  4. Hi.

    I have an old carrom board which, after a brief period of inactivity, has developed strange bumps/nodes in some places. The bumps in the ply are not visible with the naked eye but when you slide the striker over it, you can hear something is off.

    Can I use sand paper on these areas? Which grade of sandpaper do you recommend?

  5. it should be covered all the time except during playing. Boric is not the best choice for keep the surface smooth. There are better products. If carrom is not in best condition, it takes away all the joy of playing it.
