Maintenance Help

Maintenance Help

We've organized a library of contact information, helpful videos, service manuals, and links to service providers that can keep your bowling lanes running smoothly. Homeowners who are not do-it-yourselfers usually hire a service company to come in on a monthly or quarterly basis to clean and re-oil the lanes, do preventive maintenance on the pinsetter machines, and make any necessary repairs or adjustments. We also maintain an informal unpublished list of technicians that work at local public bowling centers who have expressed an interest in working on nearby home bowling alleys.
