When it comes to taking good care of your piano – you can’t do enough. Although it appears to stand tall and strong, the piano is one of the most delicate musical instruments and requires regular maintenance and care to continue sounding and playing well. Along with keeping its inner components tuned and maintained, a piano’s outer features also require protection from natural elements and regular gentle cleaning to preserve their strength and appearance.
While your piano is in the safety and comfort of your home, it is easy to protect it and control the temperature and humidity level around it. But once it goes into storage, there are a lot of things to consider.
When storing or moving and transporting a piano to another location, additional care and attention is required as this is not a simple process and usually is best handled by professional piano movers who can provide the right space, restrains and environment for your piano during storage and relocation.
Preparing Your Piano
Before you decide to put away your piano in storage or send it over to a new destination in a climate-controlled truck, it would help to clean your piano and polish it to avoid mold and moisture from accumulating and preventing the wood from getting damaged. Professional piano storage facilities and moving companies that provide a climate-controlled environment, however, ensure that your piano remains safe from any kind of damage so acquiring their services would be highly advised.
Pianos are very sensitive to the climate and humidity levels around them, and these elements can have a harsh impact on the instrument if they keep fluctuating. Since most pianos are made from wood, a drastic change in the temperature can cause a piano to shrink or swell, which in turn cause cracks and splits in the instrument.
A piano’s soundboard can also be affected by fluctuations in the surrounding humidity level and the sound, pitch, vibration, and overall function of the various parts can get altered.
Replacing or repairing these parts of a piano can become very costly for any piano mover and to avoid that hassle and expense, avail the services of a climate-controlled storage facility instead.
