- Keep windows open to get a breeze running through the building to aide in the drying. If there is a humid air outside, close the windows and make sure that the air conditioner is running if possible.
- Have industrial air movers and dehumidifiers set up to remove the moisture that extraction won't. Careful monitoring of the drying environment is essential to make sure wet carpets are rapidly dried and not ruined.
