A home spa can be a joy to experience, but in order to keep it “running” a maximum relaxation and efficiency there are a number of steps that need to be taken to maintain the cleanliness, functionality and safety of your home spa space.
When cleaning your home steam shower or steam shower it is important to use a cleaner that is recommended for the type of materials that your room is lined with. For cleaning the tile used a tile-manufacturer recommended cleaner. Make sure that it has an antibacterial component and clean the room thoroughly at least once a week. The moist environment of a steam shower is perfect for the spread of bacteria and constant cleaning is necessary to avoid this bacteria taking hold. Nothing can ruin a spa experience like an unclean spa environment. Don’t forget to use a nonabrasive cleanser as to avoid damaging your fixtures. If you’re using a steam shower generator remember to drain it often. We recommend once every sixty steam showers.
Steam showers and steam rooms can undergo some wear and tear over time – including crack in the walls, floors and ceiling. Moisture can seep into the cracks and allow bacteria to grow and spread. Any cracks should be sealed up as soon as possible with sealant once the steam room has dried.
A steam room should be a leak-free environment. Monitor the steam room doors and make sure that no steam is escaping because over time this moisture can ruin your bathroom and lead to costly repairs down the road.
Follow these tips in your home spa and the little bit of extra time spent on cleaning and maintenance will pay off in the long run-both for your pocket book and for your overall spa experience.
