Cedar wood has natural anti-decay and antibacterial properties, and does not warp, meaning your hot tub can last for a very long time.
The interior of the wood tub is kept natural. As long as it stays wet, the rich cedar appearance will be maintained. Any mineralisation, causing a whitish-grey colour, can easily be removed with a scouring pad.
Especially if the Hot Tub is fitted outside, special care must be taken of the exterior finish. Firehouse will seal the exterior on installation and can provide tubs of special wood preservation finishes. These special preservatives allow moisture to escape, without the exterior blistering and the wood finish can be kept looking new for generations. These can be applied at intervals suited to the conditions to which the Hot Tub is exposed.
Airborne dust and dirt are kept out of the tub by a special cover. This cover must be kept clean with water and a soft brush. If kept outside, a uV (ultraviolet) protection, available from Firehouse, must be applied to avoid damage by the sun.
