How to clean a wood staircase

With a wooden staircase, it is very likely you will be cleaning the steps as well as the wooden balustrades, so it is important to work from top to bottom, to avoid any slip hazards. Before cleaning your steps, you should sweep with a broom and collect and loose dirt at the bottom of the stairs or vacuum. This will then leave you with any dirt that has set into the wood and is a little harder to remove.

You should carefully consider the finish of your wood here and purchase a cleaner that is applicable to this finish. Once you have applied this with a mop, leave to set for a while before drying off any last areas to have your wood staircase looking in perfect condition once more.

How to clean a steel staircase

A steel staircase is also easy to clean, and can be achieved in a few simple steps that will allow your interior stairs to look contemporary for years to come. To clean your steel staircases, be sure to remove all debris with a brush or broom, much like you would on a wooden staircase.

Then use a sponge and some warm water with cleaning detergent included to wipe away any excess debris that is still visible. Then simply rinse and dry with clean water and a cloth, to have your stainless steel staircase back at its sparkling best.
