Cleaning Tips: How to Clean Stairs with Carpet

Few spots in the home are more difficult to clean than staircases, and it can be quite a daunting task. Vacuuming is not enough to keep your carpet clean, especially if your stairs get a lot of traffic from kids and pets.

Luckily, Rug Doctor’s Upholstery Tool is perfect for cleaning tight spaces, such as stairs; and with its long hose (12 feet), you don’t have to maneuver a large carpet cleaning machine up and down your stairs.

Here are a few things to keep in mind during the process:

• When renting a Rug Doctor machine, be sure to also rent the Upholstery Tool. The rental fee is usually around $3 for 24 hours. Always check our website coupon locator first for savings in your area

• Don’t forget to purchase Upholstery Cleaner and Anti Foam

• Thoroughly vacuum your stairs first to remove larger debris and lose dirt

• Pre-treat existing stains with a product like Rug Doctor’s Hi-Traffic Pre-Treatment

• Visit our website for specific instructions on cleaning with the Upholstery Tool

• Attach the Upholstery Tool and set the machine to “ON” for Upholstery / Hand Tool cleaning and use the Rug Doctor cleaning formula of your choice

• Start at the top of the stairs and work your way down

• Work at a slow, steady pace

• Use extra caution anytime you’re cleaning stairs

In addition to being great for stairs, the Upholstery Tool is perfect for other difficult and hard-to-reach areas, such as couches and even inside your car.
