Blot, don’t rub:
You should first gently wipe the damp area using a dry cloth or a piece of paper. You should avoid rubbing the wet area, because it could push the water deeper into the carpet fibres and make it difficult to dry. You can dab as lightly as possible to remove as much moisture from the carpet.
Circulate in the air
The best thing you can do for your health is to get plenty of fresh air. Let fresh air in by opening the windows and door. Install fans in order to better circulate the room’s air. Air movement will speed the drying process, and help prevent any unpleasant odors.
The sun is shining!
Use the power of nature to dry your carpets on a sunny afternoon! Carpets can be dried by sunlight. Allow the sun to do the magic. You should be aware of any fading, particularly if the carpet you are using is colored and sensitive to sun.
You can use baking soda or towels.
You can give the area a small boost by laying down dry, clean towels and pressing them into place with your toes. Towels will soak up more water. Alternately, you can sprinkle baking soda onto the damp area. Let it rest for some time before vacuuming. Baking Soda helps to absorb moisture and remove odors.
Use a blow-dryer to remove hair:
Use a hairdryer set to the lowest temperature for small spots. Be sure to move the dryer over the area so as not to concentrate heat into one place, which can damage your carpet.
