The need to clean the piano from debris and dust is obvious, since dust is the main causative agent of allergies, and a long uncleaned instrument is likely to become a kind of shelter for various living things. Quite often, looking at the piano or the piano, the owners of the instruments can find large layers of dust, moth and its pupae, moth-eaten gaskets, mouse nests with their owners, or even typical domestic rodents that escaped from neighbors.
All this, of course, can negatively affect the operation of the musical instrument itself and the purity of its sound. It is not worth mentioning that the content of a dimensional tool in a similar, inappropriate condition cannot be acceptable in the room where people live and stay for a long time, especially children. To avoid all this, you need to regularly and thoroughly clean the piano from all kinds of dirt and dust. True, it is worth noting that for many owners of a musical instrument this is quite problematic, mainly because of an elementary ignorance of how to do this.
So, in order to fully clean a musical instrument - a piano or piano - from dust, you need to carefully and carefully dismantle the facing parts, and then open the keyboard. Such actions must be performed especially carefully so as not to damage important parts of the piano in any way. Next, clean the details of the mechanism when using a vacuum cleaner.
Please note that special care should be taken in the area of the hammer mechanism: even slight damage to it may negatively affect the sound quality of a musical instrument in the future.
As soon as the dust is collected using a vacuum cleaner, it is very important to make a careful inspection of the mechanism - its parts, connections, nodes. Quite often, they can detect the presence of residues of various small insects and other living creatures, such as moths. If they are found, they must be carefully removed without residue using special brushes.
After that, you should carefully examine the musical instrument - if there is still dust in it that cannot be reached with a vacuum cleaner, you need to be patient and just blow it. To this end, you can rearrange the vacuum cleaner and blow the piano thoroughly, thoroughly. It should be prepared for the fact that perennial dust can fill the room and precipitate on adjacent pieces of furniture, but this, alas, can not be avoided. But before the start of the procedure, you can prudently cover everything that can become dusty with a plastic film or at least suitable material.
When a musical instrument is thoroughly, qualitatively cleaned from dirt and dust, one should think about its reliable protection from moths, since it can cause significant harm to the sound quality of the piano. Felt, textile and felt elements of the tool can significantly suffer from the reproduction of similar insects in it.
An effective remedy for protecting against moths is tea tree oil. It needs to be poured into very small containers, approximately 5 grams each, and placed inside a musical instrument. After this procedure, you can be sure that in the next six months or a year the piano or piano will not be hit by a moth.
After such a cleaning, the sound of the piano itself will be significantly cleaner and even a little louder. Maintaining a clean musical instrument at the proper level is simply necessary. In addition, it is advisable to prevent the ingestion of various foreign objects, in particular food crumbs. As for the cleaning described above, it must be done regularly, preferably at least once a year.
As for cleaning the piano, it will be more pleasant to do this with music familiar to us from childhood! This is a song from the movie “Guest from the Future”, played on the piano.
