Sucked 15+ gallons of water out of my bedroom carpet with a shop vac. It is still pretty damp back there, but the shop vac isn't pulling much more out of it. I have a space heater in the room blowing across the floor to help dry the carpet, and I want to pick up a dehumidifier tomorrow to try to help out the drying process. Any other tips/tricks to getting the water out of the carpet and padding underneath? The landlord and I realize we might just have to rip it up and replace it all, but I thought I'd ask first. Thankfully nothing in the bedroom got ruined. I don't leave anything on the floor aside from shoes. My new "bedroom" for now is the living room until the place dries out completely.
