How to Clean Stairways With Coarse Carpeting

Have you ever tried to really clean coarse carpeting? How about a stairway with coarse carpeting? It can be difficult to really get it clean. This is a guide to doing just that.

Start at the top of the staircase. Using your broom, sweep horizontally across the top stair. Make sure to get any visible debris all to one side of the stair. To get this done right, you may need to press down hard while sweeping across.

Sweep the debris you collected down to the next stair. The debris doesn’t have to land on the next stair, just make sure that you are sweeping it down toward the landing. Move down to the next stair. Make sure that you don’t lose any of your debris on the way down.

Gather your debris. Sweep the debris you have collected on the landing into the middle of the landing. Make sure to carefully scour the edges of the landing with your broom. Don’t leave the landing looking as bad as the staircase that you just swept!

Sweep the debris into a dustpan. Toss it into the nearest trash can. Try to get as much as you can with this process. Any left over pieces of small debris (such as sand , dirt, shavings, etc.) can be vacuumed later.
