Steinway Piano Gallery of Fresno provides piano storage. Your piano is an investment, and we treat it as such. Most storage units are not climate controlled, or they charge higher rates for a climate-controlled unit. But, even the climate controlled units have cement floors and little to no heat which have the potential to be harmful to pianos. Stored pianos are wrapped in heavy duty blankets to protect them.
Cement floors and cement walls hold lots of moisture which will damage your piano. This type of environment causes the strings to rust, makes the damper felts hard and causes them to “zing”. It also make the hammer felts hard and the tone of the piano becomes too “bright and tinny”. The action of the piano will freeze up and be full of sticking keys, etc.
In the winter, the heat needs to be at least 60 degrees. The finish on a piano kept in uncontrolled climates will crack as the wood underneath responds to change. The interior of the piano is changing also as most of the piano is made of wood.
