Is carpet a good choice for the bathroom?

Many homeowners want to experience comfort and softness in the bathroom. However, that doesn't mean carpet flooring is a good idea for this space.?

While it?s true that these floors offer comfort, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) recommends avoiding the installation of carpet in the bathroom, and here?s why.

Bathroom carpet placement

The most important thing to understand about carpeting in the bathroom is that it's a magnet for humidity, moisture, and dampness. And the bathroom is well-known for all of these and more.

You can choose a water-resistant material, but then you're trading in the softness you want. But the soft, fluffy floor soaks up moisture and dampness, allowing mold and mildew to grow beneath your carpet in Maple Ridge, BC.

These health-altering facts can aggravate your allergies and worsen conditions like asthma and COPD. Even if the mold doesn't affect your health, you can be sure it will eventually cause your subflooring to rot, requiring complete replacement later.

Instead of carpeting in the bathroom, why not choose a soft alternative like an area rug or mat? These pieces provide the comfort you want and are easy to move, clean, dry, and replace as necessary.
