If you’re considering getting a stair lift for your home, one of your main concerns is whether they will damage your carpet or stairs. The answer is both yes and no. In most cases, they’ll only leave a few small holes, which are easy to repair with steam cleaning. If your carpet isn’t in the best condition, you may have to replace it before you can install a stair lift. However, if you’re not sure if you want to spend a lot of money on a new carpet, a temporary stairlift will do just fine.

They leave small holes in the stair tread
Stairlifts leave small holes in the treads of your stairs. These holes can be repaired with wood filler and plugs that match the color of the wood. You can do this DIY project yourself or get a handyman to do it for you. You can also cover the holes with carpeting.
Stairs are made of three main components: the tread, riser, and baluster. The tread is the bottom half of the stairway; the riser is the top half of the stair. These are connected to the riser by a railing. Decorative elements are placed on the riser and bottom half of the tread
They can increase the value of your home
Having a stairlift installed in your home may increase the value of your home. Often, many people begin planning for their own aging in place long before they begin to experience physical challenges. Stairlifts have many advantages for your home and can be easily removed by a mobility professional if you no longer require them.
