Your dealer can advise you how best to compensate for climatic conditions in your area. However, here are a few general tips for proper care. On cloudy or rainy days close all windows in the piano room. Also, be sure to close the top board each time after playing. The piano's thick cloth cover absorbs moisture in damp or rainy weather and should be taken off and dried on clear days. Be especially careful about excessive moisture if you live in one of the following places:
Along a seacoast or in a rainy or humid region.
In a valley, in a house facing hills, or in an area with poor drainage.
In a concrete building not more than one or two years old.
In an area where air exhausts are directed into a room or in a dark, dank room.
