Most of the dust and grit that collects in a piano over time ends up in places that are neither visible nor accessible to the piano owner. This dust and grit eventually works its way into the working mechanism of the piano, leading to premature wear and even bigger problems down the road.
It is not a good idea for a piano owner to attempt to clean the inside of his or her piano. This is best left to the professional piano technician. Fragile, delicate parts are too easily mishandled, misplaced, or broken. This is why we offer a complete line of professional piano cleaning service.
