Drying Out Carpet

choufleurSeptember 15, 2004

My carpet is soaked from a damaged water pipe in my home. After I take up the carpet, how can I dry it myself? Is there a machine available that can dry the carpet on the floor?

Thanks for your help.

I would use a dehumidifier, and all the fans I could borrow, turn the airconditioner to "freeze" and wait.
This of course after you have removed all the water you can with a wet dry vacuum.

There is some kind of a blower you can get to help. I see them being used at the local stores in the winter when the snow on boots coming in the door makes the floors and carpets wet. You could probably rent one. Check out your local rental place.
