  • You can ask, but it doesn't mean they will. Unless there is NO carpet in the place they aren't legaly required.

  • Your apartment complex will more than likely NOT remove the carpets due to your allergies. If your allergies are that bad, either A- try carpet cleaning once a week with an allergen reducer and vacuuming at least once a day. or B- move.

    It's not the landlord's responsibility to remove carpeting due to your allergies, unless you want to offer to pay for the installation of flooring they seem to agree with.

  • I doubt they would remove it just for allergies. I would invest in a really good vacuum and use it daily. You may also want to see if you can have your duct work vacuumed out. Then plan for the next apt to have hardwoods and no carpet. No fun on that. You could approach them and ask if they would be willing to split the cost of putting in laminate wood floors, but there is a good chance they would say no.
