By John Parker


Doing a repair for the piano can be labor intensive, however, this can be done by you if you only have the necessary tools and supplies for the repair. But if it is one valuable antique, it is not suggested that you are going to restore it and it would be better to leave it to a professional in Atlanta, GA who has the high degree when it comes to expertise. If you own a piano, restoring it by yourself may be fun.

But before you start doing your own repair, you first have to know the value or worth of the instrument by contacting a professional. This piano repair Atlanta often needs and consumes higher budgets especially if you do not wish to ruin it because of its being antique. The musical and the structural condition of is checked by the professional. The age of instrument may be determined by checking the serial number and knowing who is the manufacturer.

Another way is keeping in mind that the ornate inlays and carvings, and also some other unusual design can also tell how old it is. After this, discuss all the conditions with the trusted dealer. He or she will be the one to tell you about the methods that you can use for restoration.

After all the examinations, start by disassembling the piano. In this step, all hard wares are required to be removed, but make sure that all the parts are labeled so you can easily reassemble it after. Take note of the processes during the disassembling since the project would take a longer time to be completed. Taking photographs is suggested as well before and after removing.

The next method is removing the varnish. Use a paint stripper for a furniture when removing an old varnish. After the varnish has been removed, use a fine steel wool, an old cloth that is lint free, and a paint thinner when cleaning the wood. Then after, use a sandpaper to sand the clean wood. Use only a light touch when using the sandpaper. After being sanded, get a tack cloth to pick up the dust and debris.

During the repair of dents and dings, a wood filler is used. The lacquer type of finishing coating is recommended since this type can help prevent the stain from causing uneven color unto the wood. Finishes have many other types and most of these are appropriate for most wood stains. Only a polyurethane varnish is not suggested for usage.

Apply first the coat stain by the use of a rag that is lint free. Foam brushes may be used as well. Use only a small amount of stain in one area and wipe any excess for avoiding any streaks. If you want it to have a deeper color, you may apply the stain several times but make sure to dry it out first before applying another coating.

Apply the finishing coat. One best suggestion for this is using the polyurethane type. This helps in sealing the stain and protecting the piano from damages due to moisture. After the finishing has been applied, sand it. Get the tack cloth and wipe the wood to remove the dust particles. Apply again the finish coat.

And lastly is doing the reassembling process. Dry out first all the coated parts before starting this method. You may test it through touching and if it still feels sticky, it is still wet. For the avoidance of scratches, place a carpet on your floor. Reassemble and follow the processes in reverse using the photographs and notes that you have.
