Did you know that in Finland, there are about two million saunas in a country with a population of only 5.3 million? Even the president and prime minister have their own cozy sauna, and many rental properties come with their own sauna!
American sauna and steam room owners can enjoy the respiratory benefits and wellness benefits of these wonderfully simple rooms, but getting rid of an old sauna or steam room can be a challenge.
If you’ve been searching online for “sauna removal near me” then you’ve come to the right place. Junk removal experts found on JunkGator specialize in bulky item removal and junk removal services near you, including sauna and steam rooms.
Sauna and steam room removal services
Saunas come in all shapes and sizes, as do steam rooms. For homeowners in the United States, small, portable sauna units have become a practical solution rather than converting an entire room into a sauna. For commercial fitness centers, spas, and wellness centers, larger and more well-equipped saunas and steam rooms are quite popular.
No matter whether it’s for renovations, remodelling, or any other reason, getting rid of a sauna or steam room can be fairly complex. That’s why reliable junk haulers found on JunkGator can help dismantle and haul away recyclable materials and waste from a home or commercial sauna or steam room.

Frequently asked questions
What can I do with an unused sauna?
Unfortunately, you cannot dispose of most sauna parts and components in an ordinary landfill. Some parts that may be recyclable of a sauna include woodburning stoves, sauna heaters and control units (electronic waste), sauna stones, wood panelling and benches and any metals used in the sauna.
What is the difference between a sauna and a steam room?
Saunas and steam rooms both use heat to provide their wellness benefits, but the main difference is in the heat source. Saunas use dry heat from a woodburning stove or from hot rocks, whereas steam rooms are heated by boiling water in a generator, thus providing humidity.
How much does it cost to remove a sauna?
On average, it costs around $75-$100 per hour to dismantle and remove a sauna in the United States, which includes labor and materials. The cost of disposing of sauna waste varies widely, but affordable sauna removal can be found by using JunkGator.
Do home saunas use a lot of electricity?
It depends on the type of sauna in your home. Naturally, traditional hot stone or woodburning stove saunas don’t require any electricity at all except perhaps for interior lighting. Electrically-powered saunas generally use around 1000W or more, which in turn uses 1 kWh. Multiply this by your electricity rate to find out how much your sauna is costing you in energy every month.
