It is entirely possible that the steps will be messed up. At a minimum the steps will probably require sanding and refinishing (staining? and varnishing) . This is a very aggressive adhesive and is not intended to be removed EVER.
If the finish on the treads is old and/or worn then the adhesive may be sticking directly to wood and will lift wooden fibers and any loose varnish during the removal process.

It is entirely possible that the steps will be messed up. At a minimum the steps will probably require sanding and refinishing (staining? and varnishing) . This is a very aggressive adhesive and is not intended to be removed EVER.
If the finish on the treads is old and/or worn then the adhesive may be sticking directly to wood and will lift wooden fibers and any loose varnish during the removal process. Also any solvents will tend to stain the wood.
If the treads are well coated with a polyurethane based varnish prior to applying the carpet tape you may be able to remove the adhesive residue as follows.
1st - Apply a lot of elbow grease and your thumbs to "roll" the adhesive into little sticky balls. Very labor intensive and time consuming.
2nd - Try any of a number of natural oils (cooking oil, peanut oil or peanut butter, olive oil) applied with a paper towel. Again lots of elbow grease, labor intensive and time consuming. Wash away oil residue with a good detergent and water. Thoroughly dry before continuing.
3rd - While providing LOTS OF VENTILATION, apply isopropyl or rubbing alcohol with a paper towel. Once more lots of elbow grease, labor intensive and time consuming. The alcohol may tend to dull the finish, especially if left on for to long. Work in small areas and dry off the alcohol often moving to another area while giving the finish a chance to reharden.
4th - Remaining residue can sometimes be removed by repeatedly applying a very aggressive tape (such as Gorilla duct tape) using a dabbing technique similar to removal of lint from a woolen suit jacket.
5th - Repeat steps 2 through 4 as necessary.
Test solvents other than isopropyl alcohol on a hidden section or scrap piece of the the treads prior to use. As always PROVIDE LOTS OF VENTILATION when using any solvent.

Answer: 
The tape is very gummy and sticky. If you go to take it off, you'll need a solvent. If the chosen solvent is compatible with the finish you should be OK. Check solvent compatibility in an inconspicuous area or ask the finish manufacturer. Don't ever use a metal scraper as you will scratch and gouge the finish.

Do not use it on top of carpet (but under area rug) as it is meant for permanent placement. The box advises not to use in on wood floors because "Permanent damage may occur". I chose to do it anyway (because we were having such safety issues with my elderly mother and our pets) and didn't want to tack it down with nails or staples. I hope to use an adhesive remover if I ever someday need to pull it up.

Hi there LLMSH,
This tape is not designed to be used atop carpeting or hardwood flooring as like you suggested, it will indeed leave a residue.
Instead, it would seem you are more looking for a product like a rug pad/gripper. See the attached products below.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very sticky... This product was very easy to use and is very sticky. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great microwave, Weak exhaust fan. Nice appearance and microwave functions well. The exhaust fan is weak and doesn't draw vapors well from the stovetop. I know this is a common problem with over-the-stove microwave units, but this one is not as good as our last one. So, having said that, it is probably fine for the less than average cook but not a good fit for an active chef. June 28, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stickier than I thought We have an outside sunroom with an concrete painted floor but it was wearing out, so my wife got some carpet and of course after obtaining it, then asked if I could install. The tape seemed to be just right and sure enough, put the carpet down and don't even think of pulling it back up. Be careful when you grip the tape to lay it down because it sticks to your fingers as good as to the floor. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great. I used this double sided tape to secure carpet stair treads and a landing area rug, fully expecting that I might need to *also* use staples or tacks. It worked perfectly, and needed no additional help to secure the carpet. Perfect! May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by There has to be better carpet tape I brought this tape because I needed for two different purposes and in both cases the performance was poor. The tape does good for adhering non-slid material to the back of a carpet. It also works good to adhere to pieces of wood together. However, if you are not careful the cheap makeup of the tape can become very messy. The tape is not really a tape at all but a thin reinforcement with a gummy sticky component. If you don't have it correct the first time it is hard to re position your components without having a gummy mess. I would not recommend this product for woodworkers. The gummy mess that is left over will cause a bigger time waste cleaning it off. I would think the same would happen for carpeting laying. Once the carpet is lifted for cleaning the tape would fall apart. June 29, 2015
