The Ultimate Guide To Sauna Maintenance & Repair

December 19, 2023

Dry saunas and steam rooms are a great way to relax and unwind after a long working day. They have been known for centuries for their beneficial effects on the body and the mind. And much like any other appliance or device, dry saunas and steam rooms require regular maintenance and checks in order to continue to function like new. In our next blog, A.S. Electrical Services Ltd., one of the leading electrical companies in Toronto, will cover some of the basic sauna and steam room maintenance tips that will make these amenities last for years.


Maintenance & Repair Tips To Keep Your Sauna In Tip-Top Condition For Years To Come


Heating components check


The proper condition of the heating elements is the basis of a properly functioning steam room and/or dry sauna. For heating elements inspection, consider hiring a professional electrical services company. While we do recommend regular electrical inspections, no need to bother if there are no obvious concerns.


Steam generator maintenance


Mineral build-up on the steam generator is a common problem you might experience with your steam room. Simply descaling the generator will resolve the issue. However, if you notice the problem extends to more critical electrical components, hire a professional electrical services company to handle the required repairs. 




Steam room shares some common features with a bath. And just like a bath, it needs to be cleaned regularly to keep it free of dirt, grime and bacteria. Wipe the benches with a damp cloth soaked in non-abrasive cleaner. Give the areas where moisture tends to accumulate the most an extra scrub to prevent mildew and mould growth. 


Leak checks


Steam saunas and dry saunas are sealed airtight to maximize their efficiency. Inspect the doors, windows and other openings to make sure no air can get in or out, affecting the temperature in the sauna. In the event if a leak is detected, hire a professional to fix it as soon as possible. 


Ventilation maintenance


Ventilation in saunas is important for removing excess moisture and to prevent mould growth. To maintain optimal air quality in your sauna, change ventilation filters regularly and make sure the exhaust fan is free from obstructions.
