Stairs, the most heavily trafficked route in the house, really take a beating in the course of everyday life. Lugging a vacuum up and down a flight stairs so you can clean is not only a cumbersome task, it can also be dangerous! A better idea is to opt for a hand held vacuum. Better yet, when stairs are carpeted, opt for a hand held with a revolving brush, perfect for bringing up the dirt stuck in the fibers. If you opt for a canister vacuum, try to use one that has a hose with attachments. This allows you to leave the canister at the bottom of the stairs, while you vacuum each step with the hose.
