Fire Damage and Cleaning

September 13, 2019

This very pretty Young Chang grand piano was coated with a fine layer of soot from a kitchen fire.  The repair was to remove all the strings, clean the piano thoroughly and install new strings.  

 

When a piano is exposed to soot, the bass strings collect soot into the copper windings.  This cannot be cleaned.  The result is a very tubby sound and complete loss of tone.  The treble strings will have a loss of tonality as well as the soot acts as a corrosive to the steel.  New strings - new sound.

 

The piano is then "bagged" and the use of an ionizer for a few hours removes the smoke smell from the piano.  

 

This piano was then power-buffed and polished.
