Yes, it is really none of your business.  Your landlord must be the one to update/fix/repair the unit.  If you caused the problem, your landlord has a right to charge you for it/usually take it out of your security deposit. 

If you simply don't like the carpeting, you should ask your landlord permission to change it and then perhaps the information may be given to you.
