3 Easy Steps to clean your piano

By Lucy Maddox - March 11, 2020

A piano is an investment designed to be enjoyed for many years, so it is good to look after it. Here is a quick and easy guide on keeping your piano clean and looking like new. 

Pre-Delivery Service

Our team ensure that your piano is serviced, tuned, buffed and polished prior to despatch, so you can rest assured that it will arrive in top condition.

Cleaning your piano at home

 

Dusting

 

Your piano should be dusted regularly using a dry cloth dedicated solely to your piano.

 

If your regular cleaning cloth is used there is a risk that bits of dirt and debris from other cleaning activities might be caught in the cloth, which may cause scratches on the piano's surface. 

 

Polishing the cabinet

 

To keep the cabinet in pristine condition, we recommend using a specialist piano polish together with your dedicated cloth.

We do not recommend using alcohol-based cleaning products as these can damage the surface of your piano.

 

We would also avoid furniture creams, sprays or waxes as these can all cause a build up of waxy or silicon layers that can spoil the original surface.

 

Cleaning piano keys

 

Ordinarily we do not recommend alcohol-based products for the keys either and for daily cleaning a light dry dusting should suffice. 

 

However, if you would like to clean more thoroughly it is advised to use a cleaning spray with very low alcohol content.

 

Spray onto a cloth (not directly on the keys) and wipe the keyboard gently.
