Installing a Home Steam Room

Steam room installation inside of your home is a relatively simple task. You have the option of adding steam to a new building, renovating your existing bathroom or building a new piece of property. Regardless of what method you choose to use, the benefits that accompany relaxation are definitely worth it.

If the DIY approach doesn’t do it for you there are plenty of bathroom installers such as Ripples in Dublin who can help you with the task.

Health Benefits Associated with the Installation of a Steam Room

  • Through perspiration, your body will eliminate roughly 30 percent of all its toxin stores. Since your body is eliminating toxins, it will help improve upon the way you feel
  • If you are feeling stressed or in pain, your steam room can help alleviate those issues and leave you feeling relaxed and less tense. Your muscles will become more flexible and pliable thanks to the incorporation of steam into your system
  • Steam helps to cleanse your skin. As a result, you will look radiant. Oils and other chemicals can lead to acne and other skin problems, which is what the steam room helps to overcome
  • If you have issues with circulation or regulating your body temperature, the steam room can help bring both of these complaints under control
  • Many individuals suffer with asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments, which is where a steam room comes into play and opens up your nasal passages to promote breathing

Installation of a Steam Room in Your Residence

One of the ideal options for installing a steam room inside of your home is to implement it as part of a new construction. Since the steam room is intentionally being built for this purpose, it will yield the best results. In reality, it can be quite difficult to enter into the ideal situation for your new steam room. Upgrading or renovating your existing home to incorporate a steam room into the picture is not as complicated as you think. Some things to consider are outlined below:

  • Home steam baths are going to require their own generator or integration of one into your shower or bath
  • When it comes to steam showers, generators can be fitted easily. Units need proper sealing to help prevent any water vapors from escaping. Even though this may seem simple enough, it could end up costing you more than a complete renovation to get your steam bath

A few other things need to be remembered when it comes time to build your steam room. Steam can damage your environment if it is unable to handle it, so you will need a bathroom composed of ceramic, glass or granite to eliminate the potential for any water damage. The unit will need to be insulated and sealed, proper drains need to be installed and sloping ceilings would be ideal. All of the steam produced can cause serious damage to your home, so all of the aforementioned requirements are imperative.

If you are working to convert a smaller room into a steam room, you will want to make sure there is a small gap for air. For larger rooms, it is not necessary to have a gap. The generator can be stored wherever you choose, but they should not be stored on the inside of your home.

One final thing to consider is that before you embark upon your steam room installation, you will want to ensure you have all of the extras in place to provide the complete package. Make sure you include multiple showerheads, telephone, music, lighting and other aesthetics that work alongside your individual wants and needs. In the end, you are in complete control of your steam room and the way it looks.

    The number one question I get during home inspections is “How is the Foundation”. I decided to write this post to help people understand the North Texas area conditions regarding foundations. Movement in the foundation can be caused by many factors, the most common reason is differential soil movement. In the North Texas area many homes are sitting on top of expansive clay soils. Another term for this type of soil is “Sponge Soil”, increasing in volume in moisture gain and decreasing in moisture loss. When this volume increases or decreases in a uniformed matter all around the home, problems may not develop.… Read the rest

  • Draining a Water Heater

    Very few homeowners realize the need to drain a few gallons of water from your water heater twice a year. Regardless of the type of water heater you have, gas or electric, water heaters can develop a build up of sediment at the bottom of the tank. This build up can cause the water heater to operate inefficiently, shortening the life span of the appliance. Prior to draining water from your tank, you need to understand the proper way and safety concerns of performing this task. It is very important that when you are doing this maintenance to your water heater, you make sure the appliance is turned off and that you protect yourself from a potential burn.… Read the rest

  • Preparing Your Fireplace Prior to Winter

    With Winter around the corner, now is probably a good time to get that fireplace in shape for this season of sitting by the fire with a good book, spouse or significant other.
    Even with our mild winters here in the Dallas Fort Worth area, the Chimney Safety Institute recommends that homeowners who light fires in their fireplaces three or more times a week during the heating season should have their chimneys inspected and cleaned once a year.
    If unseasoned wood is burned in the fireplace, twice-a-year cleaning and inspection may be necessary, because unseasoned wood usually burns at a lower temperature than seasoned wood, causing more smoke and therefore more creosote.… Read the rest
