    carpet burn on checkout

    Inventory clerk has just compiled check out and has noticed a small burn in one of the bedroom carpets. I am not sure how much to deduct for this. I assume i cant claim for a whole new carpet.

    No, if say the carpet was £100 and had a expected lifespan of ten years and the burn was after 5 years use, then its proportional ie 50%

      You can claim for the loss in the value of your property, which is likely not to be very much at all - depending on the severity of the burn and the age of the carpet.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        But only if the carpet needs replacing. A "small burn" does not justify replacement. It is as jpkeates says.

          This is such a difficult thing to quantify but should be charged for. When this has happened to me I have charged £25 or £50 as a contribution to the shortening of the life of the carpet.
