Care and Maintenance of Your Piano - The dos and don't

Keeping Your Piano Clean

What kind of care is required?

  • Keep the surface of your piano clean to protect its finish.


  • Regularly brush off surface dust using a piano feather duster or a soft microfiber cloth
  • Before using piano wax or polish, check with the store where you purchased your piano, or a specialty piano store. Depending on your piano model, certain types or brands of wax and polish may not be suitable.
  • Avoid using chemical wipes or harsh cleaning agents which are not designed for a piano.  Their chemical compositions could ruin your piano's finish.


  • Gently wipe down the keyboard using a soft cloth (use separate cloths to wipe down the keyboard and piano finishes).
  • When your keyboard gets dirty, dampen a cloth in a diluted solution of a neutral detergent, wring out well, and use this cloth to wipe away the dirt.
  • Avoid using any kind of alcohol such as rubbing alcohol or denatured alcohol on the keyboard because it can cause cracking.
  • Generally speaking, best practice is washing your hands before playing
