Vinyl Stair Treads - Stairway Flooring Protection

Vinyl stair treads are usually used to protect the original stairway steps. You can purchase this type of stairway protection in a variety of different shapes, sizes and design patterns. Some of them come in one continuous roll, while others fit over the individual stair treads.


Vinyl Stair Tread Tips

1. When they become worn, make sure that they're replaced, before they become a safety hazard. This would include any holes, cuts or heavy traffic damage. When they become damaged, there's a good chance that they're not protecting the stairs or providing additional safety benefits.

2. One of the biggest problems with vinyl stair treads is the adhesive. Once the adhesive loosens up, these stair steps will become a safety hazard. Make sure that they're maintained regularly.

3. I just ran into this the other day. Literally, I just ran into it, the other day. I was walking through a store, when I came across two vinyl floor mats that I almost tripped over, because their corners were sticking up like a flag waving in the air. Trip over me, please trip over me and fall, because it's only a matter of time before someone actually does.

If you have any vinyl mats or stair treads that are sticking up and you don't have the time to fix them correctly, cut the the section off that sticking up, to prevent anyone from tripping over the mats that is supposedly providing additional traction, for safety.
