Lads. Something happened to two of the carpet tiles in my current flat, and I'd like to replace them rather than lose my deposit. I carefully took one up and found no manufacturer identification, just the number '50718' printed on the back. Googling "50718" "carpet tile" gets me sweet fuck all.

I'd rather not alert the landlord of this, so before I go asking for new carpet tiles from them, can anyone help me ID this?

Thanks lads. Thads.

Could you swap the damaged tiles with ones under something that will hide your shame?
(because, in my experience, good luck matching carpet tiles. Your landlord may well use he same ones in multiple flats and have a stash of spares so coming clean may not be as painful as you fear. Although that relies on your LL not being a cunt.)

In the current state of lockdown, you're shit out of luck, but when carpet places open back up take it round one and ask for a like for like replacement. If they don't have it in stock, they'll be able to order it from their suppliers catalogue.

I've ordered some free samples from an online supplier, and B&Q remain open and this looks promisingly similar: https://www.diy.com/departments/colours-clove-carpet-tile-l-500mm/109033_BQ.prd

Swapping was my first thought, but if possible I'd like to not do that. As I understand, all the residential carpets in this building are the same, so I hope that's true. If none of the samples I've ordered match then I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and ask the estate agent.

Care to elaborate?

I don't know exactly, but my best guess is my office chair wheel got stuck and tore a chunk of the threading out. Either way, there's inch-wide black patch of missing carpet. Unfotunately that was right on the boundary of two tiles.

Fair enough. To be honest I think I was hoping for some sort of amusing and elaborate wanking/shitting/murder incident or something. I hope you get it sorted anyways ladm8.

My bad. I realise on second reading that my OP makes it sound quite intriguing when in reality it was just because I don't know what happened.

I was imagining he had set them on fire.
