Piano manufacturers generally
agree that pianos should be tuned at least twice a year under
ideal conditions. Ideal conditions means a modern home with central
heat and air conditioning that would keep the environment's humidity
fairly constant so that the pianos pitch would not drift more than 8
to 12 cents high or low between tunings. The further away from ideal
conditions, the more frequently a piano will need to be tuned to
keep it within the desired pitch range.

When a piano has been
neglected, tuned incorrectly, or exposed to severe climate conditions, the
instrument may be found a significant deviation from standard pitch. In
such circumstances, much care and extra work is required to bring
the instrument back to standard pitch, minimizing the risk of damage
to the soundboard and breakage of strings. While much care is given,
there can be no guarantee that such damage will not happen during a
pitch raise due to the stresses placed on the instrument because of
such neglect or abuse or unfortunate circumstances. Extra charges
will be made for pitch changes as follows:
