Preparing Your Bathroom for a Steam Shower Generator

A steam shower generator lets you enjoy the health and relaxation benefits of a sauna right in your bathroom. Whether you need to unclog your sinuses when you are sick or just want to soothe your sore muscles after a hard day at work, a steam shower generator is an affordable and easy way to do it. Before you purchase steam sauna parts and generators, you’ll want to make sure you do some basic steps to prepare your bathroom for the extra humidity that will be created.

Having a sloped ceiling in your bathroom will allow condensation that rises from your steam shower to roll toward the wall. If your ceiling is flat, this condensation will simply fall onto you as you try to relax. Ensure all of the fixtures that penetrate the tile – such as shower heads, temperature controls and valves – are sealed with gaskets or O-rings. Check with the manufacturer to see the proper seals to use. Wood framing can get warped if it is exposed to excessive condensation. One way to avoid this problem is to cover the framing with thin plastic. You can staple these plastic sheets over the joists and studs to keep the condensation out.

Taking these steps can help keep your bathroom looking great as you enjoy the benefits of a steam shower generator.
