    Sometimes cordial stain can be removed by using a bleach. Janola being the common one. Better if you can get a stroger solution than Janola.

    Caution is needed first.
    Do a Test by putting some on a piece of carpet scrap or in wardrobe. If the carpet doesn't change colour or lose colour then try a bigger piece.

    If that is OK then try it on the stain. Mostly works but some colours are just so stable that nothing shifts the.
    Using bleach is inadvisable as the carpet will whiten from the Hydrogen Peroxide in it. The fibre of the carpet is already quite ruined from the tenant having an extra go at it to remove stains. Any further attempt at stain removal will just make the situation worse. Both carpet stain specialists advised me the same and they have been in the game for over 30 years between them.

    so your child damaged carpet in one room and you think it is 'unfair' to replace the carpet in that room? I think it is unfair that you return a property to its owner with a patch in the carpet.

    Your kid, your responsibility

    Good case for carpet tiles for future floors!

    This is a great point. We recently installed tiles in a commercial refit we did for just this reason. Tiles are far better than they used to be and we were bought 10% extra tiles to ensure we had them when accidents occurred.

    Do they have the look? Also carpet tiles might not be as warm

    Handle these things every day. Some things work and some don't. Every fabric or carpet is different. Peroxide shouldn't whiten the carpet. Bleach may.
    Have cleaned up plenty in my near 20 years of rentals.

    Get a quote for the 2 rooms.
    If you don't have insurance then TT may allow you something (having subtracted the depreciation).
    If you have insurance but the excess is too high I suspect they will pull Osaki on you and say they are both accidents.

    Hi Mrsaneperson

    That is a touch position your in.....It must be very old carpet or did you import it?

    Its very unlikely you will ever be awarded full replacement as the tribunal take into account in addition with 'betterment'.

    The lounge, I wouldn't imagine the TT would award full costs as well but keys might be your best bet to inquire with.......morally its fair and reasonable for it to be fully replaced due to it no longer being in supply, however as you probably are aware the tribunal don't work like that :/

    It was the end of a run, i was told by the NZ manufacturer Godfrey Hirst that it was supplied only to the American market. I was surprized they would provide exclusive overseas markets. Its a very nice carpet though.
    What i am starting to realize with the carpet situations though is that its often not a straight forward matter of repairs, stain removal or claiming. There are so many variables that come in, unlike some other house issues that affect the tenancy the carpet ones can be more complex & variable and unfortunately much more costly to effect a solution.
