Maintaining Your Cohasset Chime

Every part of a Cohasset Chime is weather protected. Over time, however, those layers of protection can begin to wear. To enjoy your Cohasset Chime for years to come, we suggest you hang it in an area that is not exposed to long term direct sunlight and periodically clean it with a damp cloth and mild detergent. In addition, here are some simple maintenance tips:

Bamboo Chimes

All Cohasset bamboo windchimes are made using natural and sustainable products from Bali such as bamboo and coconut shell. Each is hand-carved and hand-tuned. With proper care, your bamboo chime will typically last from 3-4 years when hung outside.

To extend the life of your chime:

  • Hang your chime in an area protected from direct sunlight or heavy winds. Excellent locations include under a porch overhang or in a shady tree.
  • Bring your chimes in during extreme weather or windstorms.
  • If you live in the north, bring your chimes in during the harsh winter months and store it in an unheated area, such as a shed or garage.
  • Occasionally wipe off your chimes with a damp cloth to remove any build-up or mold.
  • Every spring, provide added weather protection by applying a coat of varnish on your chime (you'll want to wipe off the chime before doing this!).

Cohasset has taken a number of precautions to ensure their bamboo chimes are the highest quality bamboo chime in the marketplace. Their manufacturers produce only for Cohasset, allowing them to ensure a high standard of quality control. In addition, their manufacturers harvest bamboo only during the best time of year and properly dry the bamboo before making the chimes, both of which reduce the risk of cracks in the bamboo. Finally, all chimes are inspected before they leave their U.S. warehouse.

Bamboo is sensitive to humidity and sudden temperature changes. Despite all of their precautions, infrequently, cracks in bamboo occur as the bamboo expands and contracts in reaction to environmental changes. Hairline cracks are not of concern; they are normal to bamboo and will not affect the sound of your chimes. What's more, hairline cracks generally do not develop into larger cracks.
