Care & Maintenance
Your sauna is a long-term investment; with the proper care and maintenance, it will last upwards of 20 years. Here are our recommendations to ensure that every sauna feels like the first one:
Every few uses
-Wipe down the benches with a towel, and use warm water when necessary.
-Vacuum, sweep, or dust the interior.
-Clean any glass.
For all traditional saunas:
-Remove the stones from the heater cavity and check for any cracks. Replace the stones as needed.
-Use a hand vacuum on the heater cavity to remove any dust, debris, or small chipped stones.
-Rinse the sauna stones and thoroughly dry them before returning them to the heater cavity.
-Use fine-grit sandpaper on any tough stains.
Specifics for outdoor saunas:
-Use a low-pressure wash on the exterior of the sauna to return it to its original coloring.
-If you stained the exterior, check for any weathered spots and patch up as needed.
-Check the barrel sauna band tension. If it is loose, check for any gaps in the staves and use filler staves to create a tight seal.
