Carpet is bad for asthmatic people but it also traps mould too. I removed our carpets when my children were small as one of my children is  asthmatic, I am a mild asthmatic too. This year has been a meri go round with mould and I can’t wait for springtime. 

One important thing to remember when cleaning mould is wear a P95 mask. Read on the packet what the masks protect you from such as dust, mould etc. So make sure that you buy the correct type of mask. You don’t want to breathe in the mould spores.
