Spring Cleaning for Your Piano: Breathe New Life into Your Instrument

Spring has sprung in London, and with it comes the urge to refresh and revitalize our surroundings. While you're busy decluttering your wardrobe and letting in the fresh air, don't forget about your cherished piano! Here at MB Piano Store, we know your piano is more than just furniture; it's a source of joy, creativity, and musical expression.

Just like your home, your piano can benefit from some springtime TLC. Here are some simple tips to get you started:

  • Dust it Off: A gentle dusting with a soft, lint-free cloth removes built-up dust and grime that can dull the finish and even affect the sound quality.

  • Key Care: Wipe down the keys with a damp cloth (not soaking wet) to remove fingerprints and smudges. Don't use harsh chemicals, as they can damage the delicate key surface.

  • Open Up: Weather permitting, prop open the lid and soundboard for a short period to allow air circulation. This helps prevent moisture build-up and keeps the wood healthy.

  • Declutter the Deck: Clear the top of your piano of any unnecessary items. Not only does this create a cleaner aesthetic, but it also prevents objects from falling into the delicate internal mechanisms.

  • Deep Clean (When Needed): If your piano has stubborn stains, sticky keys, or worn-out felts, it might be time for a professional deep clean. At MB Piano Store, our experienced technicians can handle these tasks with care, ensuring your piano looks and plays its best.

Bonus Tip: Spring is a great time to schedule a regular tuning! As temperatures and humidity fluctuate, your piano's tuning can go slightly out of whack. A professional tuning will restore the instrument's vibrant voice and make playing even more enjoyable.

By following these simple steps, you can give your piano the spring cleaning it deserves and ensure it continues to bring musical joy to your home for years to come.
