Sauna Maintenance Queries
In comparison with our tremendous selection of hot tubs and swim spas, our superb saunas actually require very little maintenance. Occasional sweeping and vacuuming of the floor will usually suffice, along with an infrequent rinsing of the bench tops and backrests using soapy water. We have, however, put together a list of measures you can take to ensure the smooth year-round operation of a good looking sauna.
• Wood maintenance – Though the temptation may be difficult to resist, it is not recommended that you use any wood protectant or sealant inside your sauna, even if the interior alters slightly in colour over time. Benches and backrests can instead benefit from light sanding, aiding to restore the wood to its original state in terms of aesthetics and feel.
• Use a towel! – Whilst sweating is a natural and fully expected result of an enjoyable sauna experience, it can contribute to the discolouring and staining of wood. As such, placing towels on backrests and bench tops is an effective preventative method, whilst covering the lower half of your body with one is also advised.
• Wash your feet! – Before even entering your sauna, we strongly suggest that you thoroughly rinse your feet, removing unwanted bacteria and debris from them in turn. Floors and benches will prove less susceptible to discolouration and require less cleaning as a result.
