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.
Not all stairways have exactly the same stair parts take the stairs that have open risers for an example. There are basic rules and principles that need to be followed in building staircases in order to make them safe from danger.
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.
If you can, have your stairs carpeted as it makes slipping less likely. If its carpeted make sure the carpet is cleaned on a weekly basis. Vacuum each carpeted tread and dont forget the inside crease or the portion where one step meets the other. The side and the railings have to be vacuumed too preferable all of this with a hand vacuum and not the big vacuum which Im sure you do not want to drag up and down the stairs. Thats not safe in itself.
The staircase is one of the most important parts of a more than one story home so we really should look at it and improve them for they dont just gives style to your house but also because it has a great importance in ones home.
