Stairway Carpet – There are basically two ways to install the carpet on the stairs. One of them is the waterfall style where one piece of carpet covers each riser and its ways. The other is the ceiling and band installation. In this article you will show you how to install the carpet using the waterfall method. These instructions are about the basic stairs and not the spiral staircases that require additional procedures.
Equipment needed is tech tapes, upholstery, tape measure, knee pads, knee kicker (check rental store), household electrical appliances (check warehouse rent), knife, hammer and safety glasses. You obviously need to remove all old carpets. Get rid of the hole in the tape and do not try to use old padding. Be sure to remove any pins, pins and broom down for use as a carpet. Before you begin to install stairway carpet, you should know how much carpet you need. Calculate the entire tread width sufficiently. If your tray is open on one or both sides make sure to measure under the smudge to where the riser meets and add it to the total width.
