We used to have problems with our front room carpet cos DH would hire a carpet cleaner, soak the carpet, then it would stink like mouldy cabbage for a few days. We used shake & vac and after about a week, the smell went.

But if it's really very soaked, could you claim on the house insurance? Does it seem dry?
