Maine Piano Tuning: How to Maintain Your Piano

Piano tuners are responsible for keeping pianos in tune. Piano tuning is essential if you want your instrument to sound perfect and keep performing, but not all piano owners realize the importance of tuning. Most people buy a used piano, not new, for it is a significant investment. Tuning is essential for used instruments because they can easily fall out of tune.

It is important to find someone who can tune your piano who lives in your local area.

Maintaining the best condition of your piano is challenging. The environment inside and outside the room affects the quality being produced by the piano. For example, the temperature, humidity, and stress on the strings are important aspects that impact the quality of sound being made.

Suppose you want to ensure that your piano will stay in tune; the room humidity should be around 40 to 50 percent. An increase in temperature can damage the piano settings, and the piano will go out of tune.

Thus, the piano should be kept at a moderate temperature to stay in tune for the longest time.

The cities I do piano tuning in includes Waterville, Augusta, Bangor, and Portland. I also do piano tuning in many of the smaller towns of Maine.
