Pianos are expensive instruments and should be properly taken care of. Their condition will highly determine the overall performance of your piano. If the piano is out of tune and in bad condition, this can be very dangerous for you and everyone in the house. To avoid piano damage and keep it in good condition, you must have it properly tuned and repaired. Piano tuning and repair specialists are highly trained and have the best methods to get the job done correctly, efficiently, and quickly. Here are tips that you need to remember when a piano is being tuned:
Do Not Attempt to Tune Your Piano on Your Own.
Even if you think you know what you are doing, it would still be better to leave the job to professionals. You could always end up causing more damage to your piano simply because you did not do it properly. Experts have the necessary skills and knowledge to do it right the first time. They will truly be able to provide you with an accurate assessment of the problem.
Turn Off the Power Switch
It is important that you turn off the power switch before you touch the piano keys. This is to avoid electric shocks from the piano cables. If you are not used to doing this, you can ask your piano technician to do it for you. It would be safer if they do it. Using a sturdy stool or bench is not a good idea. This is because the piano keyboard is large which means it would be hard to reach if you are using a small workbench. Instead, use a larger table or chair.
