    Hello Mzdiane20,

    Your bathroom floor may feel "hot" to touch, because:

    1. There is a hot water pipe in the slab (floor), feeding one of your bathroom fixtures. Heat from that pipe transfers to the floor
    2. There is (or may be ) a hot water leak in water pipe running under your floor
    3. You have heated floors
    4. There is a wall heater in the bathroom, and the heat from the heater makes floor warm
    5. Sun hits your frosted glass bathroom window at certain time of the day in a way that it projects a beam of light onto part of your floor, making it warm ( a.k.a. magnifying glass effect )

    Hope that helps
