Caring for your acoustic piano

Properly caring for your piano involves several essential practices, whether you’re tuning it, moving it, or storing it. Let’s dive into each area:

  1. Tuning:
    • Regular Tuning: Schedule professional piano tuning at least twice a year. Changes in humidity and temperature affect the soundboard angle, impacting pitch.
    • Post-Moving Tuning: After moving your piano, allow it to acclimate to the new environment for a few weeks before tuning. This ensures stability.
  2. Moving:
    • Professional Movers: Be sure to hire professional piano movers. They have the expertise and equipment to move pianos safely. Your piano is an investment, having experienced movers handle your instrument is the best way to protect your investment. 
  3. Storing:
    • Climate-Controlled Space: Store your piano in a climate-controlled area, such as a storage unit or spare room.
    • Protective Wrapping: Wrap the piano in several layers of protective cloth sheets followed by a layer of plastic film.
    • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Position the piano away from direct sunlight and windows.
    • Consistency: Maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels.

Remember, proper care ensures your piano’s longevity and preserves its beautiful sound.
