Cleaning Infrared Saunas

The good news is that infrared saunas produce dry heat they so they are much easier to maintain than other types of saunas. 

How To Clean Sauna Wood

How to clean sauna wood is very simple (and you don’t need to do it very often). The inside walls of our saunas are lacquer free. This is because we want to ensure the internal area of the saunas are free of toxins. 

Wipe surfaces with a gentle cleaning solution such as a diluted vinegar and water mix (you can also use baking soda or essential oils for this too). Ensure you give all areas a second wipe down with a cloth dampened with just water. 

We don’t recommend using heavy detergents or harsh chemicals in your sauna. 

You can also give areas light sand to remove stains or dents etc or use a natural oil sealer to keep your sauna looking sharp (for any glass surfaces, we recommend using a spray bottle filled with vinegar and water solution). 

How To Clean A Sauna Floor

When it comes to how to clean a sauna floor, you just need to give your sauna a quick vacuum every once in a while to clear out any dust etc. 

We also recommend putting a towel or carpet square on the floor for each session to absorb sweat and help prevent staining.

How To Clean Sauna Benches

Because you sweat during your sessions we recommend putting towels down on the bench of your sauna as this helps to absorb sweat and prevent any staining. 

Always try to use fresh, clean towels for each session and have a spare to wipe excess sweat off your body. As mentioned above, you can also lightly sand areas to help remove stains. 

We also recommend setting the timer on your sauna to run for a few minutes after you hop out to help dry out any sweat or remaining moisture.
