Clock Maintenance

clock maintenance

To keep it simple if your clock is less than 75 years old it needs service once every two years.

75 years or older 2-3 years depending on make/maker.

Some movements must be disassembled for proper service. Here’s why.

Clock oil starts breaking down between 24-36 months depending on use.

You wouldn’t drive a car that long with dirty or little to no oil because you know where that will get you…… not very far.

Also, call a professional to do this! Some people spray the movement with things like WD-40 and that will only damage the clock movement and add to your repair bill.

Give us a call today and set up an appointment to service your clock correctly.
