The following terms are the most common stair components used in most homes, these vary according to the carpenter who mounted them.
To remedy to creaks in the stairs, which are generally caused by humidity and wear, one can usually mend the wooden elements that have moved from under the staircase. [Staircase Designs]
Make sure that there are no loose wedges between the end of the treads and risers, if so you may glue them or screw them back into place.
If there is no access to the bottom of the stair you will have to repair the stair from above. You may screw back the leading edge of the tread if it has come away from the riser.
If you need to change balusters you may do so by taking the bottom spacer away from the baluster behind the one you intend to remove, change it then re-insert it.
