Title: Cleaner for moldy/mildewy smell in commercial steam room
Post by: Peanut on August 24, 2009, 07:53:32 AM
Since we run the boiler all day and the steam room is always "wet" how does one maintain this area so there is no mold or mildew?
Members are always complaining the room doesn't smell clean that it has a moldy or lysol smell. For appearance sake the room doesn't look mildewed or moldy.
Is anyone aware of a safe product that will not add fumes or be toxic
in any way? Does the area need more ventillation? What can be done to enhance our memebers enjoyment ??

This is a common concern in steam showers and other high moisture areas but steam has great cleaning power and mildew is rare in a shower that is used frequently. Here is a Steam Room Cleaner (http://www.steamsaunabath.com//catalog/product_info.php/manufacturers_id//products_id/101096) designed specially for steam rooms - this stuff works great!
