We finished sucking up the water with the shop vac yesterday around 2 pm; it just wouldn't suck up any more. I sopped up some more out of the carpet with 8 bath towels, then washed & dried 'em. And I put out 2 containers of Damp Rid, which have yet to do anything. And now it's starting to stink downstairs. Our friends next door are going to loan us their dehumidifier for a day to see if that helps ... but aside from that, I'm kind of at a loss as to what else to do, other than call a carpet cleaning service & have them come clean right away, and suck up our nasty-damp smell along with cleaning the rest of the carpet! I'll see how well the humidifier does overnight ... and then decide tomorrow what the next step is!
