Many of us would probably agree that having carpet in the bathroom is a bad idea, but you will still find it in some homes. Let us take some time to discuss why it is a bad idea.
The few proponents of bathroom carpet might feel like it’s nice to have soft floors under their feet in the morning, and while that might be true, that is really the only positive to bathroom carpet.
The major problem with carpet is that it can hold water, making it a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Mold could even grow underneath the carpet unnoticed until it has reached critical mass.
When it comes to bacteria, there is no shortage of sources for that in the bathroom. Having carpet makes it almost impossible to clean up anything that spills on the floor. If you are stuck with carpet in the bathroom, having a steamer for deep cleaning is essential, but your best option is to have the carpet removed.
