Summertime like the xmas holidays is a slow time for the studio here
so once a year I take the time to completely dismantle and do a major cleaning.
It takes me about two days to strip everything out (excluding wiring in the walls)
and about two weeks to re-install. (I’m old so I take my time)
I shampoo the rugs/drapes and clean (and some years paint) the walls and the ceiling
(the ceiling is a real pain to clean) and before bringing stuff back everything gets
a good scrub.
Acoustic tiles (bass traps etc) don’t get moved
but they too get a good vacuuming.
I don’t allow smoking etc in the studio and I do daily/weekly clean ups but
the yearly clean is the big one.
Just wondering how you guys handle this part of the job.
I won’t let anyone touch anything or help.
I do it all myself and even then I worry.
And yes the acoustics change very slightly after a cleaning.
(everything seems a bit brighter)
Takes me about a week to get used to it.
But maybe it’s just me.
TIA (thanks in advance)
