Properly Maintain Your Clock
Maintaining your grandfather clock is an important piece to preserve it's longevity. Most of the pieces are already old enough that will require certain maintenance and repairs. Clocks up to around 75 years should be looked at by a professional every 4-5 years for proper maintenance.
Keep in mind a lot of service to your clock will require dissembling of some movements. Similar to any type of vehicle or machine that takes oil for it to run correctly, so does your clock. And clock oil will begin breaking down around the 4 year mark. We love what we do here because we love working on these clocks. Do yourself a favor and let a professional like Daniel Lee Buffinga maintain your piece!
