I have sung the praises of sauna use for many years and have been able to convert many of my friends and colleagues into frequent users – some have even installed their own saunas. As a sauna aficionado, I am often the person they come to for advice. “rick willianen, how do I ensure my sauna lasts?” is one frequent inquiry my friends pose to me.
I am quick to tell them that regular and routine maintenance is important to ensure the investment one makes in building a sauna is a long-term one. Just like a car, your home, or any other costly purchase, adhering to regular maintenance schedules is important to a saunas’ longevity.
