If have squeaky stair treads and the treads are carpeted it's not that expensive to fix. Some screws will need to be put into through the treads into the stair stringers to keep the treads from moving/squeaking. This can be done through a small slit in the carpet without damaging the carpet.
You can also lift the carpet but then the carpet will need to be re-installed and that's a lot more work. No special screws needed. We use common 2 1/2" drywall screws. A pro is probably better suited to do this since a carpenter will have a better idea how the stairs were made but you could try it yourself if you like. You only need to slit the carpet slighty larger than the diameter of the screw head. Make sure the screw head gets behind the carpet before you send it home. You want to hit the stringers which are usally dead middle and at the far ends of the threads if the staircase is betwen 2 walls.
