Upstairs weight limit

Hey guys, I have a 18 by 15 feet upstairs room and I have a pool table weighing around 700 ~ 1000lbs in the center of the room. Is this weight limit too much and will eventually cause the upstairs to collapse?

It has 4 legs. Each leg touching the wood floor is about 4 square inch.

Would it be a lot safer to make something that will allow the legs to rest on top of a 144 square inch metal/rubber?
