SOME BASIC FACTS FOR PIANOCARE

Keep your piano in tune. Piano is ment for exact pitch to get correct sound and to able the action to work in the right way. It’s good to tune the piano at least once in a year. At the same time piano tuner checks if there is need to regulate the action. If the piano has been out of tune for years, it may need several tunings to keep in the right pitch.

Structure and pitch has changes because of humidity and temperature, changes cause lack of tune and needs for regulation. Piano goes out of tune in anyway, even if you wouldn’t play with it at all. To play the piano frequently keeps the action in move and prevents it from stucking. Lack of tune disturbs playing and practising.

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

Keep your piano clean with just a clammy cloth, never with a water dropping wet one. Don’t use any chemicals. Don’t place drinks or flower vase with water on top of the piano. Water spoils the surface, strings, action, keys and soundboard very easily.

It’s not good to place the piano to direct sunlight, next to the window, out door, heating unit or external wall because of the changing humidity and temperature.
