No damage has been done by me, it's just worn out...in fact, I've improved the appearance of the apartment...I painted all the walls and balcony, fixed all the cupboards, added shelves,... show more Glencair; I was informed by the Super that the landlord would raise my rent by $20/month if he replaced the carpet.
