New Westpak stairwand (prototype)

#26
The problem with the PMF swivel stair tool is that the 1 1/2 tube narrows down to 1 inch at the swivel.
Choking off airflow.
Actually only on the version made more for a portable.

The other is straight 1.5 inch (the one I use)

I didn't know there was a different version until recently seeing a couple as you describe... I didn't like them as well either

The nosing or rounded projected end of the stair tread is a challenge for most stair tools and these areas can be very soiled.

I have always cleaned these areas with an upholstery tool.

Does this tool clean the nosing perfectly?

If you want to scrub and rinse a bullnose, you'll need a 3 to 4 inch hand tool.

Are you doing that on every staircase?

I rarely see the need..

Yes everyone.

However I use the floor wand first during the extraction step then the parts missed with the upholstery tool.

It doesn't seem any longer in time plus an upholstery tool can get into tight places.
