If you have a piano at home, then you probably play it once in a while. Pianos in commercial spaces, such as in high-end restaurants or places of worship, get much more action when there is a concert or presentation. The bottom line is that any piano spends most of its days in storage.
When taking a piano out of long-term storage, thorough cleaning is needed before it can be used. Dust and debris that might be stuck in between the piano strings or body must be removed by dusting and wiping the piano. The stuck dirt can cause damage to the strings, cause buttons to stick when pressed, or make the piano produce sound out of the normal pitch settings.
Professional piano cleaning services guarantee that a piano that has been in storage for a long time is ready and safe to use without risking damage to the delicate interior parts. Cleaning the piano with the help of a professional cleaner is also a good way to diagnose any damage that dirt might have caused. The cleaner is also at a better position to address any problems that emerge right away.
Cleaning the exterior of the piano by wiping the surface after every use to remove dust is a good idea. It is also advisable to take the piano to an expert cleaner once in a while. The cleaning services offered by a professional cleaner can do much more than what the piano owner is able to do at home.
Piano Tuner in Minneapolis offer professional piano cleaning services that are both thorough and exhaustive. They focus on the exterior, interior, and hard to reach spaces on the piano.
The delicate strings make it difficult to clean the interior of most pianos, but the years of experience the cleaners at Piano Tuner have, allow them to take out the dirt without breaking or straining the strings. Thin cleaning brushes, which fit in between the strings, are used to loosen the dirt particles that are then sucked out using a handheld vacuum cleaner.
The exterior cleaning involves removing dirt on the surface, detailing the finish on the surface, and polishing any metal parts on the piano.
The cabinet backside and bottom of the piano legs get neglected when owners clean their pianos at home. This does not happen at Piano Tuner cleaning shop. All the grooves, corners, cabinet, legs, and piano edges get a thorough cleaning that leaves your piano looking as good as new.
The buttons are the parts of the piano that get the most action, which means that they require regular cleaning. While most home cleaning endeavors take care of the visible top surface of the buttons, the spaces in between two buttons are often neglected. Dirt in between the buttons can cause the buttons to stick when pressed. The cleaners at Piano Tuner Minneapolis get the buttons sparkling clean on the top and get cleaning equipment in between each and every button ensuring that no dirt is stuck between the buttons.
Above average humid conditions can be perilous to the delicate insides of the piano. While cleaning might be sufficient to take care of built up mold on the surface of piano parts, the damage might have extended beyond the surface. It is advisable to take the piano to a professional cleaner who will not just clean the piano but also will inspect the piano for damage that might require further action.
