Have you always wanted to change your carpet stairs to hardwood for a classier, more sophisticated look? Oftentimes, naturally beautiful wood staircases have been covered over the years with carpet, vinyl, and paint. Stripping those layers can reveal a staircase waiting to be turned into a wood masterpiece.

Step 1: Do Your Research. Staircase restoration is a specialized trade, requiring years of training and experience in woodworking and metalworking. Choose someone with proven experience, a portfolio of their work, and testimonials from satisfied customers. You want your investment to not just meet, but surpass your expectations.

Step 2: Assess. Every staircase is different and unique, much like every home, and your staircase needs to fit your existing aesthetics. Do you want something rustic, or modern and edgy? Do you want a dark mahogany wood, or would a lighter wood fit better with your interior design? Do you want full hardwood, or a carpet runner going up the steps? Talk extensively with your restorer to make sure you are both on the same page about the design.

Step 3: Schedule. Depending on how detailed the job is, plan to not have access to your stairs for some time. Take down any photos or artwork that may line your staircase so nothing gets damaged, and cover any furniture that sits below your stairs.

Step 4: Maintain. Now that you have your beautiful, restored wood staircase, you want to make sure you take good care of it. When cleaning, start out by sweeping. Then apply a suitable cleaner for the type of sealant that’s on your stairs. If you aren’t sure, call your staircase restoration expert & ask since using the wrong cleaner can cause serious damage. Don’t ever apply wax to hardwood, as it can make your stairs extremely slippery and cause injury.

Wood staircases are versatile, durable, and long-lasting. If you’re tired of your worn carpet and looking for a change, contact Don Yacovella for Montgomery County Stair Restorations at 215-262-0975.
