Regular tunings protect against extra work or repairs in the future. Most piano manufacturers recommend for general maintenance, a tuning every 6 months. Some manufacturers recommends even four times a year for their pianos.
In some cases where the piano hasn't been tuned for a number of years it most likely will need a pitch raise depending on a number of factors.
Sometimes as a piano ages the felt hammers that strikes the strings hardens over time and the tone changes to a harsher or brighter tone that some people find undesirable. The Hammer needs to be voiced or softened with needles.
The feel and touch of the piano keys is determined by the regulation of the action. If you are having trouble with the action, this is something that can be easily remedied.
There are a number of action parts that can break or wear out that need replaced from time to time in order for the piano work properly.
Keytops chip and discolor and need to be replaced. Sometimes its for cosmetic reasons other times the chips or breaks in the tops can leave sharp edges that can cause cuts in the fingers and hands.
