Stair treads are one of the most aborted parts of your stairs. This comes as no surprise since the other name for them is the 'step', meaning that they are being stepped on boundlessly every day. This is also keeping them always safe to use is a must for every home or office. After all, you've already heard about many accidents that happen on the stair case. So here are some effective but simple ways to prevent mishaps with stair treads:

A good point to start with is ensuring that your stair treads are durable enough to withstand constant abuse and pressure since they take the bulk of the weight of whover is using the stairs. Investing in stair parts that are durable will also ensure the safety of your stairs.

Start off with your material. If you are using wooden stair treads and a fully wooden staircase, it's best to use hardwood made from a reliable supplier of stair parts / supplies. If you are using concrete or steel, it's also a good way to have a safe and durable staircase. Do not forget to keep it too. Always be on the lookout if it needs repair.

Do you have small kids in the house? Then installing some anti-slip treads should do the trick. This type of stair treads has a non-slip surface which offers great traction whenever you step on them. Trips and slips are drastically minimized when these are used. Also, never leave anything lying around near or on your stairs. Things like toys and rugs should be kept away from stairs. If it makes you feel safer, you can also install end gates for your stairs. You can put these at the topmost and the bottom end of your staircase. This is to prevent your small kid from using the staircase without your supervision.

Using high shine floor polish on your stair treads is a very bad idea, because this will be only increasing the chances of slips. Stair carpets should also be secured completely. When it comes to maintenance, it just basically involves wiping down the treads, stair railing, and balusters, just to keep dust at bay. Just keep the high shine effect on the hand railroads or on the balusters.

Preventing mishaps on your stair treads is easy if you will follow the tips previously mentioned. Making sure that safety of your stairs is not taken for granted should be every homeowner's priority.
