Interior staircases

Wooden spiral staircases

The wood staircases are durable and elegant but at the same require a bit of more care than the metal staircase. Begin the cleaning process by vacuuming or sweeping the  staircase. This will remove any dust or debris present. Remember you should start from the top and go to the bottom. With sweeping over, wipe the wood with a damp (not wet) sponge or cotton cloth. Try and immediately dry it off with another cloth. Make sure that wood does not absorb any water. The last part of cleaning wooden stair case includes applying mild cleaning solution and wiping that with a damp and then a dry cloth. This will make your wooden staircase as good as new.

 

Metal staircases

The metal staircases are stylish, sleek and low maintenance. They can be easily cleaned with a dusting cloth or a microfiber dusting cloth. If you have fingerprints or stains, clean them with mild cleaning solution. You can use bucket or spray bottle to clean the stains. Do not use the harsh cleaners as they can damage the finishing of the metal staircase.

Exterior staircases

Wooden staircase

The outdoor wooden staircases are exposed to the harsh weather, moisture, and heat. This can lead to the growth of mildew and algae. The best way to clean the outdoor wooden staircase is to use the pressure washer and waterproof sealer. You need to scrub the staircases to ensure that there are no stains present. Give the area about 2 days or so to dry before you apply the waterproof sealant.

Metal staircase

The metal staircases are extremely low in maintenance, which means that all you need is a power washer and a damp cloth. Just make sure that you dry the stairs well.
