Cigarette burns on carpet
Probably depends how big they are, the person I bought my flat from must have been a stoner as there were huge (3-5 inch long) burn marks in the carpet that he’d conveniently covered with rugs etc. when I viewed it. They’re down to the backing though so would only be repairable with cutting out the section if that’s what you mean? I’d certainly be withholding some deposit if they’re more than barely-noticeable cosmetic marks.Posted 6 months agoseosamh77Subscriber

Also, if they cannot, any ideas what I can claim against their damage deposit.
New carpets, and probably re painting and cleaning the house properly. tbh if they’ve been smoking in the house and you specified no smoking, I’d imagine you could go to town on their deposit.Posted 6 months agoJunkyardMember
I want them done properly
you are just going to pay someone to either
1) make a patch
2) use fibres from spare carpet to glue in place
there is no expertise involved in the later
Then again they damaged it so I think I would be replacing them personally and charging them unless I really liked them [ which i would not after 4 fag burns on my new carpet].Posted 6 months agoJef WachowchowMember
Back in a past life, when we used to party in our parents houses when they were away, the odd small burn in the carpet was almost inevitable.
We would trim carpet fibres from various, more hidden areas and glue them to the burnt patch, with occasionally very good results.Posted 6 months ago
