If you’ve just bought a brand new sauna, or are simply think about buying one, then you’ll want to make sure you know how to maintain it, so that it lasts you a long time and is as effective as it can be.
Aquasun are leading suppliers of high-quality saunas, that make for an excellent space to relax in and chill out in, taking a break from life’s daily hassles. Our range of saunas include infrared saunas, conventional saunas and Tylo saunas.
As with all leisure activities, saunas require a certain amount of maintenance to keep them functioning just how we like them to, and make sure they remain a pleasant area in which to relax.
You’ll be pleased to know that sauna maintenance is fairly straightforward and won’t take up lots of your time. Here are some tips on how to maintain a sauna from Aquasun:
Try to pour a cup of warm water or two over the sauna rocks, rather than too much cold water, which will eventually damage the rocks.
If your sauna contains a stainless steel heater, wipe it down with warm water and then thoroughly dry it before leaving.
If your sauna has one, empty the wooden bucket and turn it over when you leave. This is so you don’t let excess moisture in.
Brush the walls and benches of your sauna with a soft-bristled brush and water each time you leave. Remember that mould can flourish in a sauna environment and it is beneficial to gently wash down the surfaces after every use.
Warm water and mild detergent can help to remove stains from sweaty bodies. Oxalic crystals can also lighten darkened wood that has had a colour change due to perspiration.
When doing a more thorough clean of your sauna, use a sponge, but shy away from using lots of water.
If mould and mildew has started to grow, then you’ll want to use a combination of bleach and water to scrub it off.
