Steam Rooms vs. Saunas – What Are the Differences?
Cultures throughout the years have touted the benefits of steam rooms and saunas, but what are the distinctions between the two? While there are several notable differences, the main one relates to humidity. While some steam is produced in a traditional sauna (anywhere from 5% to 30%), a steam room is just what it sounds like – a comfortable, enclosed area filled with steam at 100% humidity. Neither a sauna or steam room is necessarily better than the other, rather more a matter of personal preference; and both options create a healthful escape to cleanse, relax and rejuvenate. At Saunas.com, we offer a selection of steam room equipment for commercial and residential uses.
