When you’re not playing your piano, it is best to close the fallboard and cover your piano with the corresponding slipcover in order to protect your investment.

When cleaning your piano, take care to only use a dampened, soft cotton cloth or soft brush to wipe the surface.

Before playing the piano, wash your hands.  Hand oils may contain acids that are harmful to piano surfaces. Clean the keyboard regularly, wipe along the direction of the keys. 

If stains occur, use mild soap and water with a soft cloth. Be sure to wring out excess water before cleaning.

If the copper or metal parts on the outer case appear oxidized, you can use a car wax applied with a soft cloth to revitalize the metal finish.

It will be necessary from time to time to clean the inside of your piano. This should only be done by a qualified tuner technician. If you need help finding a technician, please contact Pearl River’s technical service department and they will be happy to help you find a local tuner technician.

If you’re not planning to play your piano for long periods of time, put some camphor (moth balls) into your piano and cover it. Even if you’re not playing your piano, to protect your investment, you will still need to tune it once or twice a year depending on location and climatic conditions.
