Varnish does tend to change colour slightly or yellow with age, so re-sanding and re-varnishing is often necessary after a few years. To keep the wood looking good, the stairs should be washed either with a product specially designed for hardwood floors or simply with water (without vinegar or detergent). Installing hardwood on stairs can be done by any experienced do-it-yourselfer equipped with the right tools

First, use mats at every entrance to your home that opens up to your laminate floors. Dirt should be wiped off of shoes before walking through the home so that it is not ground into the laminate flooring to cause surface scratching. Although it is not necessary to remove shoes before walking on laminate flooring, it is ideal. Second, whenever it becomes necessary to move large items across the laminate flooring, use mats, tarps, or other forms of protection. A furniture dolly can be used to move large furniture from one room to the next and if you are simply rearranging furniture, be sure to use furniture gliders to prevent scratches on the laminate flooring.
