    Rent a carpet shampooer and use the upholstery attachment

    Resolve carpet cleaner works very well. Spray it on carpet, scrub in with scrub brush, let set, then vacuum.

    Hi A Jaffer,

    This is Linda. Kelli is right, but first vacuum the entire staircase with the upholstery and crevice attachments. Look for spots and pretreat them. I use an equal mix of vinegar & water with a few drops of Dawn. Spray it on then scrub if necessary. Now use the carpet shampooer. I do use the upholstery & crevice attachments with the shampooer to get into all of the corners and creases. You can use carpet shampoo or add about 1 cup of vinegar to the water in the shampooer. I hope this helps you. Wishing you the best.
