How to remove really narrow carpet staples from hardwood flooring? : HomeImprovement

Hey all, a new house owner here and I’m in the process of removing the carpet that the previous owner put on the original hardwood flooring. Getting rid of staples from the stairs has become the biggest challenge, especially the smaller staples. They are mostly of 20-Gauge 9/16 in specification, and in most of the cases they’re stapled flush with the surface. Standard staple removers don’t work well as these staples are really narrow. I have seen some staple removers recommended in other subreddits but I am not sure if they will work for staples with such narrow heads and flush with the floor. Any recommendations?
