Basic Rules of Piano Care

-Keep your piano in tune. Your piano will sound its best and give you and your family the most pleasure when it is tuned regularly and kept in proper playing condition.

-Keep your piano clean. Keep the keyboard covered when not in use to prevent dust from accumulating Clean keys by occasionally wiping them with a damp cloth and drying them immediately. If accumulated debris can't be removed with a damp cloth, try wiping the cloth on a bar of mild soap or moisten with dishwashing detergent before wiping.

-To maintain the piano's finish, you may wipe the case with a damp cotton cloth to remove fingerprints, or polish with a reliable emulsion-type, water-based solution following the manufacturer's instructions. Avoid aerosol spray polishes that contain silicone.

-The maintenance of the inner working of the piano and regulation should be left to a qualified piano technician. Resist dusting the inside of your piano, oiling the moving parts, or using moth or insect repellents.

-Try to maintain a fairly consistent temperature and humidity control in the room where your piano is placed. It's important to keep your piano away from a heater during cold weather, an air conditioning vent during hot weather, a fireplace, a frequently opened window or outside door, and direct sunlight.

-Play your piano regularly. You'll get the most enjoyment from it and also reach your potential much faster. A disadvantage to idle pianos, assuming they also suffer a service lapse, is that a detrimental condition or environment can't be identified, and an escalating problem can result in damage that might not have occurred with regular service.

-Keep all drinks and standing liquid containers off the piano. Spilled water will most likely damage the action, and make the pins to rust. Remembe prevention is the safest rule to follow.

-Do not perform repairs yourself. Though a problem may appear easy to solve (such as replacing a loose key), a qualified technician will have the proper tools and parts to make repairs quickly and correctly. It's important to remember that unsuccessful amateur repairs are usually much more expensive to fix than the initial problem and may decrease the value of your instrument.

-Use only a professional piano mover to move your piano. You will avoid injury to yourself, your instrument, and your piano will arrive at your home safely.
