Toddlers walking on the stairs can easily slip and fall down for the stairs, which in the worst case can lead to serious injury. As a parent, you should therefore – in addition to the obligatory stair gate -provide the carpet with a reliable slip protection. The stairway carpet is the most common and practical option, as it reduces the wear level of the stairs while it both warms your feet and reduces the slip risk.
A stair tread rugs usually consists of small often crescent shaped artificial fiber pieces. The carpets are self-adhesive and very easy to put. However, when assembling, consider the following advice: The slip guard must be placed along the walkway, which means at the middle of the stairs. In curved stairs, the carpets may need to be cut to fit in the middle of the stairs.

Therefore check the anti-slip ability of the mattress on a regular basis, preferably up to twice a year.

Anyone who does not want to change the aesthetic appearance of the staircase with stair tread rugs can instead install transparent slim shields of self-adhesive plastic. Prismally, these are fully comparable to stairs, but on the other hand, they are colder to go on.

However, keep in mind that the powder gives the stairs a coarse surface, which has an increased wear and tear effect on socks and stockings.
