Contact the landlord and tell them what happened. Explain them it was an accident and ask what is the best way to proceed. In any case, you pay the bill, to whoever comes to repair it. 

When you’ve caused substantial damage to the property, the best way to handle is it involve the landlord first. Otherwise, you may have extended costs as a dispute with the landlord may result in you paying for more work or redos.
