Carpet installed in the bathroom can lead to unwanted moisture problems. Carpeting installed adjacent to the bathtub and shower will absorb water from routine use. This can lead to water-related issues such as mold, mildew and potentially rot at the sub-flooring.

If you have carpet installed in these areas, including around the toilet area, it is highly recommended to replace the carpeting. You have quite a few options when choosing a flooring type for your bathroom.

Some of the ideal flooring materials for the bathroom include vinyl, porcelain or ceramic tile, hardwood, and natural stone. Whichever material you decide to go with, take into consideration the inevitable moisture and frequency of use of the bathroom. Whether you hire a contractor or do it yourself, replacing the carpet will reduce moisture problems and improve the aesthetics of your bathroom.
