For practicality surfaces need to be tough. If carpet is your chosen, floor covering, ensure that it is well attached to the stairs either by a gripper rod beneath or stair rods above. Stair rods are an old-fashioned but decorative idea and many styles, particularly those in brass, are still being manufactured. A stair nosing will protect stair edges in situations where there is particularly heavy wear. Delicate wall surfaces can be protected by the introduction of a painted dado at the lower level.
Also keep an eye out for splinters and just sand and finish to get rid of them. Get your steps checked for mold every now and then if they are near a damp place like the basement. Leaving that for a long time will give you a lot more problem in the future.
All of the time, a staircase is used often for they connect each floor. They are used in order to go up or down in the house. Because of this it became an integral part of a house. Some staircases are factory made and are shipped and installed in your home by carpenters, others are built in place and customized by some with the help of woodworkers, carpenters, or stair makers to make it more personalized. It can be narrow or wide, steep or gradual, grand and showy, or purely functional. It is also important to know its stair parts and the materials used for it as well, because you can never be so sure if your stair is good or not. Some believes that having good stairs means having good stair parts. Well they are definitely right.
Another good and useful rule of thumb is that the total of the length of the tread and the riser should not exceed 17 . This is the standard used to create comfortable stairs in most establishments. But keep in mind that the riser should not exceed the length of the tread, the vice versa is much more practical. For example, the length of the riser is 8 and the tread is 9 , when added makes 17 , making it pass the standards for comfortable stair climbing.
Now if carpets are not your thing then make sure that the steps are always clean. Dust the steps daily with a clean cloth by hand. Dont go for feather dusters as all they do is spread the dust somewhere else. Make sure you get in all the corners and around the panels.
