For carpeted stairs, you can use the pet hair power brush. The pet attachment has strong bristles that dig deep into your carpets and upholstery to extract all dirt, dust, allergens, and even pet hair.


If you want an all-rounder machine that can take care of the big cleaning jobs like cleaning the floors and also handle the small jobs like cleaning the stairs, car mats, upholstery, etc. the Shark Lift-Away NV356E is the perfect machine for you. It has the advanced features you need in a big upright floor vacuum while the portable convenience you need for doing the small jobs around your house.

With powerful attachments that include both a pet hair turbo brush and a bare floor tool, it lets you clean both carpeted and non-carpeted stairs. This is one feature that is missing in many other upright vacuums.

The only problem you will face when cleaning your stairs is when you are moving from carpeted to non-carpeted stairs.
