Sooo... I got home to my parents house and my 125 gallon fish tank was running low. I threw the hose in there to fill it up and got distracted doing something else. About 30 gallons of water spilled on the carpet. I broke out the shop vac and sucked up as much water as I could. I put a fan on the wet carpet and cranked up the dehumidifier all the way. Also put a big jar of desiccant sitting in the spill.
Unfortunately mildew still set in and the room that it's in reeks. I sprayed down the carpet with lysol and poured isopropyl alcohol around the base of the aquarium stand and nearby cabinet, which hopefully helped dry things up and killed the mildew.
The cabinet near it is pretty much destroyed (cheap ass particle board). The carpet is also noticeably darker where the spill was. I'm guessing that the tank might have already flooded once before this while I was away at college.
Now I'm faced with the task of making the room not smell like shit. I'm thinking about cleaning the carpet with one of those carpet cleaners you rent. Think that will do the job, or am I fucked because it's under the carpet too? This room is in the basement so the floor under the carpet is concrete.
