Using a sauna is a great way to stay fit and healthy and enjoy a comfortable and relaxed life. A sauna can help you detoxify your body, get rid of weight problems and stay free from aches and pains. If you are using a sauna regularly, there are a few things that you can do to make sure that your sauna keeps functioning smoothly and efficiently and you get the full use out of it.
Following these maintenance tips can be a great way to ensure good health for your sauna and to prevent any lasting damage or malfunction –
- Avoid any kind of painting or varnishing efforts on the interior walls of a sauna. The wooden surfaces inside a sauna should always be able to breathe properly, and painting or varnishing can lead to insulation, which can result in an uncomfortable amount of heat being produced.
- Always remember to leave the door of the sauna open for some amount of time after use. Keeping the door closed traps the heat of the sauna inside, and gradually dries out the sauna completely. Make sure that you keep the door open and there is adequate circulation so that the heat can dissipate evenly.
- The best way to keep your sauna clean and functional is to clean the interiors, including walls, chairs and backrests with a brush or a cloth dipped in clean water. This simple cleaning procedure can save you from much more elaborate cleaning efforts later in time.
- If you need more thorough cleaning, you can consider cleaning the furniture with a mild solution of soap or detergent wherever there are stains. Wooden furniture can also be lightly sanded once a year to keep them looking new. You can also periodically use a deodorizing cleaning solution to mop the floor of the sauna.
