When considering about whether to install a carpet runner in your home you will have many aspects of the project to carefully think over. In fact, before deciding to install stair carpet runners both owners and occupants may wish to first consider: safety, style, method of installation, as well as, special tips. You may begin by asking yourself some relevant questions. As you think over some of these questions others may up. Consider everything that comes to mind carefully and thoroughly.
What safety benefits can stair carpet runners offer you and your family? What style carpet best supports user safety and aesthetic needs? What method of installation will be best for you? Do you have the necessary tools and time to install your rug?
After carefully considering all of these questions you should be ready to embark on your home improvement project! Let’s take a detailed look at the safety considerations. Always remember, safety first!
This is clearly the most important option to consider – Safety! There are many types of safety including (but not limited to) mechanical safety and environmental safety. So, when considering improving the safety of your staircase or stairway, please do take into consideration these two different but important types of safety issues.
The most obvious consideration is the slickness of the stairs – are they slippery? Has anyone ever slipped, fallen, or nearly fallen down the stairs? If so, adding stair carpet runners to your home maybe the right solution for you and your family members. You may also wish to rule out other options that augment the surface texture and thereby increase the safety of your staircase.
Environmental safety is also a very important factor to consider. Do you have chemical sensitivity or allergies? If the answer is yes, you will most likely want to research natural and low emitting carpets and carpet liners. In fact, a stair carpet runner that is eco-friendly is probably your best bet. You can also look into stair carpet runner pads that are made out of natural rubber or other alternatives to the synthetic options. Also, you may consider securing stair tread carpet pieces in contrast to the full stair rug.
Project/ Installation Safety:
You will want to ensure that whoever is installing is well protected. In fact, the person should have eye protection available to them while installing the stair carpet runner. And, during the preparation period, if solvents are used, a proper respirator should be available and used. This is also the case for paints and paint fumes. If there are any pregnant persons around you will want to consider having them in a different section of the house away from the project. Also, as mentioned earlier, persons with chemical sensitivities or allergies may wish to be located away from the project as well.
Now that you have taken into consideration all three important safety factors: mechanical, environmental, and project, it’s time to embark on an exciting and worthwhile addition to your interior – a stair carpet runner!
