Well came home last night, washed my hands in the bathroom, and something must have shifted with the water pressure because the water supply tube connection to the toilet blew off and sprayed water EVERYWHERE. And of course this was a bad time to find out that the CUT OFF VALVE WAS STRIPPED (when it rains it pours literally) so i had to wait 10 minutes till the landlord came over to cut the main valve off (which was in the crawl space under the building. Wound up with a 2 inch flood, carpet in both the bedroom and living room soaked too. The landlord's son-in-law used a wetvac to suck up all the water. The landlord got the supply fixed today and a new cut off valve.
So my carpet is still damp, even after i extracted teh water with a shampooer, and i'm afraid it's going to stink like wet dog in here. It is very low pile with padding, and is a little over a year old. Any ideas on warding off a rotten carpet smell?
