I had my piano service recently and I was very happy with it, moreover the charge is reasonable. You can try to call him at hp. no. 97906120, Mr Kai and he was actually recommended by Mr KS Toon (Music Odyssey).

What is the frequency to tune the piano? What will happen if we dun tune them regularly? Will the piano spoil? And the heater, must we turn them on always??

Yes, you have to leave the heater on all the time. I understand that you have to tune it at least every half year, but the last time I tuned was a year ago. My son claims it still sounds fine....
