How Sanitary Are Steam Rooms?

A visit to a steam room or sauna can be a powerful way to relax. It’s a practice that has evolved over centuries from people using steam and hot water as a self-care tool.

However, are the warm, damp locations we sit in after a good gym session or in your favorite spa or hotel sanitary and safe?

Bacteria thrive in warm and moist areas, making a steam room a hot spot for risky organisms. Contact with them can cause a variety of health complications, such as skin problems or upset stomachs.

Traditional Steam Room vs. Advanced Hybrid Steam Room

A traditional Steam room installation can take several days and can be costly. Tile, stone, and grout are the perfect environment to grow viruses and bacteria. They require toxic chemicals to clean, and these chemicals are difficult to remove andend up being discharged into our coastal environments and waterways. Traditional Steam Rooms are:

  • High Maintenance
  • Costly Installation
  • Polluting
  • High Energy Consuming

Advanced Hybrid Steam Room

AHSR’s can be assembled in one day and does not require costly waterproofing or excessive room preparation.

  • Cost-Efficient
  • Eco-Friendly
  • Easy to Install
  • Low Maintenance

Steam Room Cleaning

The Advanced Hybrid Steam Rooms are equipped with Scandia’s Powerzone 400, an advanced corona-discharge sterilization system that automatically eliminates all organic matter (mold, mildew, fungus, and viruses).
