In addition, since they do not use steam or water like traditional saunas, it is enough to wipe them with a damp cloth for cleaning, which facilitates maintenance.

Infrared radiant heat (FIR) should not be confused with ultraviolet (UV) radiation; although both are present in the sun’s rays, FIR does not damage the skin as UV does, while providing many benefits of natural sunlight.
