Your original Black Forest cuckoo clock should last in your family for decades! We are here to make sure that your clock brings cherished memories to your family for many years. To ensure your Cuckoo Clock keeps "Coo Cooing", Simply follow our Cuckoo Clock care instructions outlines below.
To keep your cuckoo clock looking bright and attractive requires only a simple cleaning practice.
A soft, dry paintbrush or static dusting cloth will keep dust and dirt build up away.
Please do not use harsh chemicals anywhere on the clock, as it can damage the wood and varnish.
Don't use harsh chemicals on the treated wood
Light dusting is best done with a static cloth or paintbrush
Don't use any oil in the clock movement specialist skills and equipment is required for servicing.
It is not recommended that you oil or spray ANY of the internal mechanism. This can severely damage the working parts. A can of pressurised air can be used to remove dust internally.
Just like a car, a mechanical Cuckoo Clock will need regular servicing by a professional Cuckoo Clock repairer.
A regular service done every 7-10 years will ensure your clock continues to run smoothly. The German Village Shop has an onsite Cuckoo Clock Specialist who can perform a full mechanical assessment and necessary repairs at your convenience
Battery operated cuckoo clocks do not required regular servicing.
Only use good quality batteries such as Duracell, as they will last longer and are the less likely to leak.
In the event that a battery does leak and cause some corrosion, you can carefully remove the residual acid by using a fine sandpaper.
Environmental factors can affect the way your clock runs and its longevity. Warm or moist air can warp and distort wooden parts, while dust and heat may dry out oils and create wear on moving parts.
It is highly recommended to keep your clock out of areas with high humidity and extreme heat. Therefore, careful consideration must be taken if you wish to hang your clock in kitchens, wet areas and over fireplaces.
