Falling down a stair can be a scary experience for anyone, and it could even end up being lethal. There are many reports of accidents and deaths every year because of falls down stairs, so you should do what you can to make sure that your stairs are safe. While accidents do happen, there are many factors that can make one stair more dangerous than another. Take for example the surface you walk on. If your stairs are carpeted, the carpet needs to be firmly attached, or it will become a tripping hazard. The steps also need to be uniform in depth, height and angle. If either of those is off, your muscle memory will cause you to misstep.
While you might think that you are used to all the oddities of your stairs and you can walk safely up and down them, imagine what would happen if a friend or relative came to visit and they weren’t used to your uneven stairs. Fixing the problem is going to be your safest bet.
