I need to calm myself down and kindly ask what would you do. We are renting a flat in London, during Xmas we have placed a pot with life Xmas tree on our light carpet but did not think it would stain. I tried to clean the stain but in the end made it worse and ended up with 50cmx30cm damage which us about three shades darker than the actual carper surrounding it. I stupidly used some chemical carpet cleaner on it. I had a carpet cleaner in yesterday announcing that i have practically chemically burned the carpet and it is impossible to take the stain out.
Now the carpet is 7-9 years old in a good condition. Question is, how to approach my landlord with this? I have contacted some carpet repair companies but before i do my next move I want to discuss this with the landlord. But what shall i suggest? Or how much could she potentially deduct out of our holding deposit when we move out?
Other than that the carpet has stains on it from the previous tenant but the one i made is just too big and the worst part is that it is my fault.
Thank you for your opinions!
