Pulldown attic stairs are used to make access to the attic space more convenient, but proper installation is crucial to the safety of anyone using the stairs. These types of ladders commonly have issues such as broken or missing spring arm assemblies, loose bolts, cracked threads, or damage to individual hinges.

Maintenance of attic ladders is an essential part of keeping your home safe. Examine all the components of the stairs carefully before climbing them. Repair any defects that are found as soon as possible. Missing hinges or parts might require the replacement of the entire stair assembly, but it is well worth protecting your family from a fall. So remember the following guidelines each time you lower the attic stairs:

  • Inspect the stairs carefully for damage or wear.
  • Be Aware of weight limits on the stair assembly.
  • Ascend and descend facing the steps.
  • Only one person at a time should be on the stairs while others stand back.
