How often should my piano be serviced? - All of the piano manufacturers suggest that you tune your piano twice a year. The short answer is every six months or twice a year. This is one of the reasons my 6 month tuning rate is lower.
Regular servicing by a qualified tuner/technician will preserve your instrument and help you avoid costly repair in the future.
Here is what some major manufacturers recommend.
Baldwin: Any new piano should be tuned several times during the first year. After the first year, a piano should be tuned at least twice each year.
Kawaii: Due to stretching, settling and effects of climate, one should allow at least three tunings the first year and a minimum of twice per year thereafter.
Wurlitzer: In the first year, Piano Manufacturers Assoc International recommends that you have your piano tuned four times.After the first year, you should have it tuned at least twice a year.
Steinway & Sons: We recommend that your technician be called at least three or four times a year.
Regulation of your piano is important as over time your piano, which has over 4,000 parts needs to be regulated so that the striking of the keys is just like the day it left the factory. As mentioned before, the wood and felt parts of your piano change with changes in humidity and temperature. There are over a dozen adjustments to be made for each key on your piano to get it back to factory specifications.

A Piano is not just a piece of furniture. It is a very complex musical instrument with thousands of moving parts. Even though it is not being played, if neglected and not tuned, it will become an expensive table for your pictures and collectibles.
