Sweat and the Small Stuff: Quick Maintenance Tips for Care of Your Finnleo Traditional Sauna

Finnleo Traditional Steam Sauna Seaside ModelJanuary 6, 2015

By taking care of your Finnleo Traditional Sauna, it will take care of you. Heed these simple tips to keep your sauna looking and working like new for sauna after sauna.                                                                                        

  • Keep it natural. Don’t paint, varnish, or stain the inside of your sauna – the wood needs to breathe, and artificial finishes can make it too hot. Also, don’t use harsh chemicals to clean the room – you don’t want to breathe them. 
  • Keep it covered. Sit on a towel to protect the wood from perspiration. 
  • Keep it clean. Have a hand brush near the door so the last person to leave the room can do a 30-second clear-water scrub on the benches, walls, backrests, etc.  If stains show up anyway, use warm water and a mild detergent; if mold shows up, use bleach or Bacterinol sauna cleaner. A light sanding once a year will keep your benches looking new, but don’t wash with ammonia – it turns the wood gray. Wet mop the floor with a liquid deodorizing cleaner when needed.Buy Olympic Hot Tub spa robes for the ultimate comfort.
  • Keep it dry. After each session, prop the duckboards off the floor and leave the door open so it will dry out, with the help of the heat in the rocks and wood.

With only a minimum amount of regular care, your Finnleo sauna will give you years of warm relaxation. You’ll enter a comfortable space that’s as fresh as it is refreshing.

If your existing Finnleo Sauna is looking (and maybe smelling) a little worse for wear and you don’t want to clean it yourself, try our new Olympic Hot Tub SaunaGuard Service.  Our  SaunaGuard Service is performed by one of our Valet Techs once every six months ($135 per visit).  During our visit, we will: sanitize your sauna,  sand down (to the best of our ability) any bench stains, clean  all glass and tile and  check all sauna functions, including performance of steam heaters and infrared emitters.  It’s a terrific way to keep your sauna in top condition!
