Wet Carpet Tip of the Day
When dealing with a large amount of water (we are talking 1,000 gallons here) on a carpet, vacuuming up the water is a feeble attempt to rectify the situation. The padding under carpet is a super sponge capable of soaking up TONS of water. My advice from personal experience...get professional help. Believe it or not people exist out there that actually deal with flooded carpet on a regular basis! Or, tear up that carpet and set it on the curb for the garbage man!
