Everything is checked, pads, corks, felts, springs, screws & rods, posts, levers, other mechanisms, foot, head, body. Notes are taken to ensure nothing is missed. This example is a Blessing flute.

Your flute’s head, body, and foot are then cleaned using special non-abrasive paste. Any dust is brushed from the dismantled components, and they are then cleaned with an appropriate cleaning cloth, depending on whether your flute is nickel, silver or gold plated. The pivot rods and screws, and inside the hinge tubing is also cleaned. Note: if your flute is excessively tarnished or dirty, an extra cost will be applied. Here is the flute at the wash-bay.Next, the list is referred to and any replacements or repairs are done.
