Now when cleaning many people ignore the auxiliary step area which includes the side panels, railings, handrails and landings. Do not ignore these areas. If they are made of wood you should not only dust them but polish them as well with furniture wax. No waxing for the steps or landing places as we are avoiding slipping. nothing thats close to the feet.
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.
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.
