Accidents happen all the time, no matter how careful you are. This means that at some point, your carpet will be in need of proper care after a water spill has soiled its fibers. If this has happened to you recently, you can follow the tips in this post to dry your carpet and deal with the situation appropriately.

React Fast

Waiting for the water to dry on its own can be really detrimental to your carpeted floors. If a spill has happened, be sure to act as fast as possible to limit the damage with the steps below.

Absorb Excess Moisture

The first step is to absorb the excess moisture. You can do this by pressing a clean towel over the damaged area to blot the liquid, or use a vacuum to suck up the moisture in the carpet.

Expose the Padding 

If possible, try lifting the exterior layer of the carpet to expose the padding underneath. This will allow the inner layers of the carpet to breathe, accelerating the drying process.

Increase Air Circulation

Following from the point above, make sure that enough air is getting to the carpet by opening up windows and doors. You can also increase air circulation by turning on the air-conditioning or a fan.

Let the Carpet Dry

You’re almost done with the drying process. All you have to do now is wait for the carpet to be as good as new. In the meantime, try to keep the damaged area off limits to let it dry properly.

Sprinkle Baking Soda

If you’ve let the carpet dry and the smell of something humid persists, sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the carpet. Let it sit for a while to absorb the smell, then vacuum the baking soda away.
