Cleaning steam saunas or infrared saunas

If the usage rate of a steam sauna is high (for example during peak season), it must be washed several times a day. In daily cleaning surfaces are washed with a disinfecting cleaning agent. Deposits easily accumulate on the surface of the steam room, which can be removed with an acidic cleaning agent.

Infrared saunas must be cleaned according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Pay attention to the special requirements of infrared devices. As a cleaning agent, a general cleaning agent is often enough, and the method is wiping and mopping.
