Do We Really Have to Get Rid of Our Comfortable Carpet?
With proper maintenance, keeping soiling from filling the fibers, carpet becomes a filtration assist, keeping air currents from easily redistributing dust into the air. Hard surfaces must be cleaned very regularly to control air current redistribution of dust, as there is no way to stop the movement of dust across these flooring choices.
It is not uncommon, after cleaning hard surfaces, to see within hours of household use, a travel pattern of no dust where we walk, however, accumulated dust along the path on both sides. Bedrooms, bathrooms, entries and kitchens are quickest in developing these air/dust patterns as they are usually the busy rooms. Bedrooms speak volumes in this regard, as this is where all the dust and pollutants from our clothing from our daily activities end up, unless we disrobe in our entries and take this issue to the laundry room.
Add darker colors and texture free to the hard surface choices and everything including foot oil marks, show immediately, especially if the light is at such an angle as to make this more obvious.
Before making a quick decision to remove comfort and dust control from your indoor comfort equation, consider the improvements made in textile flooring products and informed cleaning services.
This brings up another issue, How do I find an informed and ethical cleaning service or any trade for that matter?

David Snell | When do I need a mold inspection
A good article explaining mold with a balanced viewpoint.
Unless we are off the planet or in a purposed clean room designed to be maintained mold and bacteria free, we are exposed to many varieties of mold everywhere. Remember, it is the concentration, usually over time that creates sensitivities with most airborne particulates that induce reactions that require above and beyond measures to rectify. Exposed, growing, active mold in confined spaces is the circumstance that needs to be addressed primarily, as easy distribution due to air currents, even from our own activity, let alone doors opening and closing, windows letting air through or the like is raising the parts per million we breath. Other unseen issues that directly affect a closed environment is beds up against walls that condensate and keep the bedding components damp.
Many times a bed is moved out and we see a black wall along with a black mattress and box spring. As you have already imagined, as you were sleeping, mold redistribution was at its peek. Not feeling rested and feeling a bit off your game may be indicators of such a problem. Keeping a space for active air to flow will stop this type of problem.
