Stairs are often the cause of many different accidents; some of which are fatal. But there are some simple steps to take to insure home safety stairs. Everybody at any age can be at serious risk of accidents around stairs. But stairs are particularly dangerous for the elderly and for small children. Here are ten easy steps to insure home safety stairs.

The first step is to make sure there are lights to illuminate the way. Put a light switch at the top and bottom of each stairwell. The second step is to make sure that the stairs are all in good repair, and there aren't any uneven or raised surfaces. All steps should also be the same size. Uneven stairs can lead to bad home safety, and more accidents.

Other steps include installing a handrail, keeping the stairs free of clutter, and removing loose carpet or coverings from the stairs. Safety gates should be installed at the tops and bottoms of stairs as well, to keep children from crawling or falling down the stairs. Also, make sure you take your time to go up and down the stairs. Rushing can only increase your risk, especially if you are carrying children, pets, or heavy objects.
