How Is Your Piano Affected By The Weather
Your piano can most probably provide decades of enjoyment, with the proper maintenance and care. The weather can give you a headache as we can do little to control it but it can adversely wreak havoc to your piano if you are not careful and leave it to the elements. Luckily, there are many ways you can preserve your piano from expensive repair by following these simple steps.
For example, if you are moving your piano to a different region, it makes sense to plan the move diligently. You must engage the service of a professional piano mover. If you search online, you can choose a good piano mover in Malaysia at a good price as it has been very competitive and affordable these days.
When you have your piano with you, you can monitor its condition on a day-to-day basis. You have to keep in mind the other conditions needed to keep it in good shape.
Here are other important considerations to keep in mind:
Seasonal Changes In Your Area
You may think that your piano is saved if you live in the area with a relatively constant temperature all year round but you are wrong. Even subtle seasonal changes in temperature and humidity can adversely affect the health of your piano. You may not notice the changes but the piano is a very delicate musical instrument and are very sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity.
To overcome the humidity fluctuation inside your house, you can install air conditioning or heating to keep the temperature and humidity as constant as possible depending on the time of the year. If situation warrants you may even install a dehumidifier if needed. Regular scheduled tuning and maintenance cannot be ignored.
Just keep in mind, when you are moving your piano to an area with different weather or climate, you would want to choose a mover that understand these conditions to keep your piano integrity intact. A mover who knows about the piano and really knows his job. Moving a piano is unlike moving a piece of furniture. Moving a piano in an open lorry is definitely a no-no. Chose a mover with climate-controlled trucks and warehouses to ensure your piano is not subjected to a huge swing in temperature and humidity en route to your new house. If care is not taken, you will be in for a huge bill in piano repairs later on.
Worse Enemy – Humidity
Temperature fluctuation can play a role in the well-being of your piano but humidity is the biggest headache as it affects long term maintenance and its performance. Small changes in humidity can give a big impact and can cause damage and performance of your piano. As there are many parts in the piano that is made from wood, it can expand, wrap and shrink due to humidity thus causing all types of problems to your piano. High humidity will even cause the metal parts like the tuning pins, strings, springs and bridge pins to rust.
Direct sunlight from a window is also bad for your piano. Keep it out of direct sunlight. The sunlight can also cause damage to the finish of the piano and the huge fluctuation in temperature will cause the piano to not keep in tune for long. Find a place in your home that has a constant temperature and humidity.
