Stains on carpet
We've lived in a rental single dwelling for 3 years. The landlords lived here for 1 year before that. They also rent out one other house. The beige carpet is not of high quality (like a lot of other things in the house) but that isn't my problem. In several rooms, there are stains that will not come out and are very noticeable. I will be honest and say that in one room, the carpet is ruined.
We gave a $750.00 deposit as well as a $400.00 pet deposit. We are thinking of moving and don't know how to proceed. Normally, I clean the house perfectly and get professional carpet cleaners in when I leave an apartment. It doesn't seem to make sense to clean the carpet professionally if stains will still be there since I'm sure we won't be getting our deposit back.
How does one figure out how much a carpet is worth when it's four years old? With a formula, I will be able to figure out if the deposits will cover the damage. If it doesn't, should we replace the one room of carpet and try to patch where there is a bad stain?
