How To Clean Your Sauna?

Cleaning your sauna regularly is important to maintain a hygienic and pleasant sauna environment. Here are some steps to clean your sauna effectively:


  • Gather necessary supplies: Gather the cleaning supplies you'll need, such as a mild cleaner, water, a soft cloth or sponge, a bucket, and a broom or vacuum cleaner (if your sauna has a floor).

  • Empty the sauna: Remove any furniture, accessories, or items from the sauna, including benches, mats, and towels. This will allow you to clean all surfaces thoroughly.

  • Sweep or vacuum: If your sauna has a floor, sweep or vacuum it to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. Pay attention to corners, crevices, and under the benches.

  • Wipe down surfaces: Dilute a mild cleaner with water according to the manufacturer's instructions. Use a soft cloth or sponge to wipe down all the interior surfaces of the sauna, including walls, benches, and the ceiling. Pay attention to areas that accumulate sweat or grime.

  • Rinse with water: After wiping down the surfaces with the cleaning solution, rinse them thoroughly with clean water. This helps remove any remaining cleaner residue and ensures a fresh and clean sauna environment.

  • Clean glass surfaces: If your sauna has glass windows or doors, clean them with a glass cleaner or a vinegar-water solution. Use a microfiber cloth or a soft, lint-free cloth for streak-free cleaning.

  • Clean sauna accessories: If you have sauna accessories such as buckets, ladles, or backrests, clean them separately according to their specific cleaning instructions. Use appropriate cleaning products or warm soapy water, rinse well, and allow them to dry completely before returning them to the sauna.

  • Ventilation and air circulation: Check and clean any ventilation openings or vents to ensure proper airflow and circulation within the sauna. Clear any obstructions or dust buildup that may hinder the ventilation system.

  • Flooring maintenance: If your sauna has a wooden floor, follow the manufacturer's guidelines for maintenance. This may involve periodically treating the wood with a sauna-specific wood sealer or oil to protect it from moisture and wear.

  • Regular upkeep: In addition to regular cleaning, encourage sauna users to towel off sweat and keep the sauna clean during use. Provide a designated space for towels and remind users to dispose of any trash properly.

It's important to note that specific cleaning instructions may vary depending on the type of sauna and the materials used. Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines or consult the sauna's documentation for any specific cleaning recommendations.
