SOME BASIC FACTS ABOUT PIANO CARE

Keep your piano in tune. Piano should have an exact pitch to get a correct sound and for the action to work in the right way. It is recommended to tune a piano at least once a year. When tuning a piano, tuner checks if there is a need to regulate the action. If the piano has been out of tune for years, it may need several tunings to maintain the right pitch.

Structure and pitch can change due to humidity and temperature. These changes can cause a piano to be out of tune. Regardless of the piano being used or not, it will eventually be out of tune. Playing the piano frequently keeps the action in motion and prevents it from sticking. Out of tune piano can affect playing and practising.

A professional can easily solve many problems and has the specific tools. Working without knowledge may cause extensive damages. Therefore, only ask a professional to take care of the piano tunings, regulations and repairs.

It is not recommended to place a piano in direct sunlight, next to a window, front door, heating unit or an external wall because of the changing humidity and temperature.

Keep your piano clean with just a slightly damp cloth, but never too wet. Don’t use any chemicals. Don’t place drinks or flower vase with water on top of the piano. Water can damage the surface, strings, action, keys and soundboard very easily.
