Sauna para protocolo de limpieza de la sauna

The cleaning of a sauna is not a complex protocol, on the contrary. Performing these steps will extend the life of the sauna and keep it in perfect condition.

5 steps to clean a sauna


Sweep and vacuum the surface dirt

This is the first step that we must execute, every time we intend to clean the sauna we must sweep and vacuum the surface dirt, remove loose particles that can be found on the floor or attached to the wood. This first step should be carried out first with a hoover, and then sweeping to remove particles from hard-to-reach areas.

During this step, it is advisable to make sure that neither the hoover nor the broom is made of any material that could scratch the wood.


Scrubbing and removing dirt or sweat stains

Once, we have removed most of the dirt, it is important to start cleaning the wood and sauna areas thoroughly. At Inbeca, we recommend our customers to use “BAC CLINIC”, which is a high-level disinfectant for all types of surfaces, thanks to its spectrum of action Bactericidal, yeasticidal, fungicidal, virucidal, mycobactericidal, tuberculocidal and sporicidal.

Its mode of use consists of cleaning with a damp cloth by dragging, removing the remains from the area to be treated. Spray the pure product homogeneously on the wood surface, ensuring that it remains wet for at least 3 minutes, leaving the product to act. Then rub with a clean cloth until it evaporates.


Disinfect ventilation areas and the rest of the installation.
The cleaning of the sauna does not only consist of the wooden seats or areas where the client is going to sit, but we must also disinfect the inside of the sauna and its complements completely. In addition, if the sauna is used regularly, we recommend cleaning it at least once a week.


Check, clean and maintain the burners, stones or electric heaters

The heaters are parts of the sauna that should be checked regularly and free of any particles or dirt, as they are the most important elements due to their consumption of electricity through the heating elements.


Aromatising the environment

When cleaning a sauna, we use chemical products and materials with certain odours. To avoid these smells, once the sauna cleaning is finished, it is advisable to use a fragrance and eliminate all kinds of smells.


After finishing sauna cleaning, it is advisable to carry out regular maintenance to check the sauna in general terms.
