Quality is Key
Think about it this way. By investing in a high-quality outdoor sauna, you will not have to do as much maintenance in the future to ensure it keeps working.
Lower-quality outdoor saunas require more maintenance and costs down the line.
All of our outdoor saunas and barrel saunas are made to the best possible quality to ensure your outdoor sauna can withstand all the elements.
Prep your sauna
Before you use your garden sauna for the first time, ensure it is prepared properly. Ensure each wooden surface is treated and ready to do. At Summer House 24, we provide our saunas with all the timber pre-treated to ensure the moisture does not lead to rotting.
Wipe down every surface and ensure your sauna is dry and clean before use. Next, set your sauna at the maximum temperature for an hour, then pour a litre of water onto the stones to ensure they are clean.
Keep it clean
Occasional sweeping, wiping, and vacuuming will ensure your outdoor sauna remains in top condition.
If you don’t use your outdoor sauna regularly, it is best you clean it before each use. Cleaning it regularly will prevent mould and other issues that can damage your sauna.
When you invest in an outdoor sauna, you want to look and feel new for as long as possible. Therefore you should take precautions such as washing your feet before entering and sitting on a towel, for example.
When you are done using your sauna, wipe down the floor and seating area, and let the sauna dry before closing it.
Looking after your heater is pretty straightforward. Ensure you rinse out the rocks before placing them in the wood stove heater, as this will remove any small particles and prevent them from getting into the mechanisms and damaging your sauna.
If cared for properly, you shouldn’t need to do any maintenance on your heater for many years.
