| || |Advice please,
We have two areas less than 1 foot across of parquet damaged by water. They are not buckled or warped but they have both gone very dark in places and very noticeable. We only just noticed as we had rugs over them. It was done by plants that obviously have leaked even with drip trays.
So do we claim on our 3rd party insurance haftpflicht or just pay up and get it fixed now with a professional or wait until we move out in any years to come (no plan on leaving flat). I would rather the landlord did not find out
Any advice appreciated or names of repair men / companies in Thalwil or Adliswil area.

In order to properly repair it, it is possible the entire floor will need sanding.
If you are not planning on moving anytime soon, check that the floors are dry, if not, leave them uncovered until they are. Otherwise I would just leave the carpets on them and deal with the problem when you move.
Your liability insurance should cover this. It is up to the landlord to choose the firm to repair it, but if you want to be sure you are not being taken for a ride, it is worthwhile to get quotes on your own.
