Did you know that
having carpet in the bathroom can lead to health problems?
Because a bathroom is so high humidity, it can promote mold
growth in the carpet that vacuuming won't prevent. And mold
can make you sick.
For the health
of your family, you are best to remove the carpet and install
something like tile or lino instead. Since both these floorings
are solid and do not retain excess moisture, you will not
have to worry about mold growth unless a lot of water seeps
underneath the flooring and into the sub-floor (plywood) underneath.
And if you love
the feel of carpet under your toes when you hop out of the
shower or bath, get some bathmats that are specially designed
to dry in the bathroom and can also be washed regularly before
mold growth ever starts.
