Cleaning Tips for Infrared Home Saunas

Infrared home saunas are designed to be durable and easy to use. Though they require very little maintenance compared to traditional saunas, responsible ownership involves regular cleaning. If you’re wondering how you can keep your infrared sauna in tip-top shape, here are a few tips:

Wooden Parts

Because the infrared home sauna experiences high levels of humidity, wooden parts become a haven in which microbes thrive. If not cleaned properly, molds and bacteria may grow and make the sauna unhealthy for you to use.

After each session, it is recommended that you use clean water and a mild detergent to wipe down the benches, floors, and walls. When you’re done disinfecting the surfaces, keep the sauna doors open and allow the unit to air dry for some time before using once again.


Keeping the glass windows clean ensures that the heat is effectively trapped within the sauna. Also, as you more than likely will want to have visibility from inside the cabin, regular wiping of the surface is needed. Avoid using harsh glass cleaners, as these may damage the special coating on the windows.


Besides keeping the inside of your home sauna clean and tidy, you should also maintain the exterior. Make sure that the power source is away from moisture, as this can reduce the efficiency of your sauna.

Follow these maintenance tips, and your home sauna is bound to remain functional for years to come.
