Benefits of Carpet Stair Tread


Carpet stair treads also help keep your stairs safe and reduce the risk of slips and injury. If you have young children or elders in your home, their feet are less likely to slip on a carpeted stair tread. The additional padding underneath can help cushion any falls and provide your feet and joints with additional support and comfort.

Protection For Your Hardwood Stairs

Your stairs are not like any other part your home that requires a floor covering. They are a key weight-bearing structure in your home that can be expensive to repair or replace if you leave them open to heavy traffic. Carpet Stair Treads can protect newly polished oak or maple hardwood and prevent scratches and stains that might cause unsightly damage to your floor. Because hardwood can become worn and scratched over time, the addition of a stair runner will help reduce the frequency of refinishing your hardwood stairs. They are a great way to protect against wear caused by shoes, boots, or even your pets’ claws.

Added Style

Carpet Stair Treads also have the added benefit of adding style and texture to your stairs’ existing surface. While it’s difficult and costly to update the stain or finish on your hardwood stair treads, carpet stair treads can be switched out to maintain the desired design. Unify the look and feel of your home by continuing patterns and colors from the great room up the stairs and into your bedrooms. You can opt for something simple by using the same carpet up the stairs or choose something more elegant with a patterned runner for an elevated look.

No Nails or Carpet Tape

There are a number of ways that tape and nails can harm your floor. First, when the bond between the finish and floor are weakened because of age and wear, even a mild adhesive can peel up flakes or patches of the coating, requiring spot or complete refinishing. Nails or staples result in permanent holes which can only be fixed by a wood filler, sand and refinishing process. Our specially formulated adhesive is a safe damage-free solution that will protect the finish of your stairs indefinitley.

Stain Resistant & Easy to Clean

Stain-resistant carpeting is very popular especially in residential settings. Manufacturers protect the carpet from stains spraying a special coating over the top. This protective coating prevents liquids from absorbing into the fibers of the carpet, making them easier to remove after a spill (food, mud, pet urine, etc). In most cases, you can prevent spills from becoming stains simply by applying soapy water before the stain dries. Of course, you should always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to achieve the best results. For example, most manufacturers warn against using bleach, which can damage the protective coating (or even make stains worse).
