Sauna room wood benches built to rest on solid concrete tiled benching. The issues here are that sauna room quality cedar wood is not being used; bench boards are butted up to each other not allowing space for boards swelling or shrinking and no air flow. With the solid concrete tile beneath the wood, there is also no air flow. The cleaning procedure is to power wash the room. The water from cleaning, bathers coming in from the swimming pool, etc. is causing water to be trapped and mold and degrade the wood. They replace wood every two years. That would not be necessary if appropriate benching standards and materials were being used.
