Dry the Carpet as Quickly as You Can
You need to do what you can to get your carpet dry before mold has a change to develop. If the amount of water is small (the same amount there would be if you dropped a glass of water or if a vase fell over), it might be enough to lay some towels down and step on them or apply pressure using your hands. However, if the amount of water is more than that, you’ll need to get help from a professional outside source. This can’t be avoided, especially if you want to avoid bigger issues.
Figure Out the Extent of the Water Damage
Does your carpet look like it’s soaked to the bone? Is the damage isolated to one spot or is the whole room affected? Determining the extent of the damage will help you choose a course of action. Don’t walk off and come back to it later; deal with it immediately, even if you have a full calendar.
