Digital Piano Review – Tips on Maintenance
Like most other instruments, digital pianos should be kept away from direct sunlight. Doing so will result in colors fading, expansion or cracking of instrument’s body. Also, keep it away from moisture or any sort of extreme temperatures for that matter.
Besides moisture and sunlight, you should also keep this instrument away from places with high foot-traffic. This will avoid circumstances like tripping and falling over, or kicking the instrument. You will not only injure yourself, but also the instrument. With damages, repairs may cost you a lot of money.
Now, this is very simple – dusting. Dust the instrument frequently and thoroughly. It’s best to do so once every few days. It’s also a good idea to cover it with a large, clean cloth. Dusting will prevent dust from building inside and causing problems. It will help keep you digital piano clean and running longer. You can also purchase a cover specially made for the instrument, but a cloth will do the job, too.
Also, keep away from young children and pets. You wouldn’t want your dog drooling over the keys or buttons. Pet hair is a major problem. Performance could be affected if hair gets into the little spaces between the keys. And of course, some pets, particularly cats could scratch the surface with their paws. This is bad for the appearance.
And before you start playing, remember to wash and completely dry your hands. Filthy, sticky, greasy keys or buttons are not good. For that matter, don’t let anyone else with dirty hands touch any part of the instrument.
Remember, these are only some suggestions and opinions. Hopefully these tips will help you maintain your digital piano for years to come. We will post a more detailed post in the future on maintenance and caring. So, why not bookmark Digital Piano Review, and check back for more useful articles.
