I am trying to find out what type of adhesive to use to glue my carpet to my metal spiral staircase that leads to my rec room. There was carpet glued previously, I just don't know what type to use. Regular carpet adhesive will not stick, and someone suggested liquid nails or contact cement. I know these two things are highly flammable, but are they safe for this type of project. Help please, Ineed to get these steps done, and without creating a fire hazard.

Elmers makes a nonflammable contact glue,liqued nail will work also, make sure ALL edges of carpet are glued very good
