HELP!! Landlord Refuses to Recarpet!! Dangerous!!!

Posted by Barcklay on November 09, 1996 at 18:22:22:

I recently discovered that it is extremely dangerous to live with carpeting
that has been damaged by pet stains (i.e. urine and feces). THe landlord
refuses to recarpet and is essentially forcing us out. THe carpet can
not be cleaned--we already had it done professionally--and these are
the stains of previous tenants. The landlord knew of the pets prior to
our moving in one year ago. I don't know exactly what to do, except that
my family is not willing to go quietly. Another family should not be
put at a health risk either. While I know some of the dangers of the bacteria
that remains underneath the padding and carpet, I'm hoping someone can direct
me to more information about the dangers associated with the carpet so that
the landlord is required to do the ethical thing.
