In any attempt to dry carpet that has been damaged by an extensive amount of water, thorough extraction must be performed. It is common knowledge that extraction is at least 500 times faster than evaporation. However, because even the most rigorous extraction leaves behind enough water to permanently damage carpet and carpet cushion, evaporation must be used to finish the drying.
The keys to successful drying are proper extraction, appropriate dehumidification, and air movers to increase the flow of air across wet surfaces to enhance evaporation.
Combine all three appropriately, and you can dry out almost any wet situation and prevent the growth of mold or mildew.
