Best Carpet for Stairs
Choosing carpet for your stairs can make the difference in having a slippery danger zone or a comfortable and secure stairway. Finding the safest type of carpet will help you avoid slips and falls accidents on the stairs.
When you walk on stairs, your feet put a different type of pressure on the carpet than normal walking. Climbing stairs include pulling yourself upward and adding more distress to the carpet with each step. Everyone walks in the same spot, which can cause uneven wear that becomes dangerous. The landings on the stairs receive even more impact.
Choosing the ideal carpet for this area of your home should be given extra care. According to carpet professionals, the best option for the stairs is a low and dense pile. The pile density adds firmness and support. The short pile height wears more evenly than its longer counterpart and is easier to keep clean.
A good option is wool carpet, usually very short and dense, and will look amazing for a long time. The downside is that it costs more than synthetic fiber. Polyester is a less expensive alternative. Even with carpet that wears well, stairs can still be slick. Adding No-slip Strips to the stairs will add traction to keep people and animals from slipping or falling on the stair treads.
