The most the time if your basement doesn’t get wet on an every year basis, the carpet is still not a bad solution. Also check out any Cookie-Cutter Waterproofing Systems.

If we can do glue down carpet where we’re gonna glue the carpet directly to the concrete and that product if we go in and shop-vac it out really good, we can generally dry it within a 24 to 48 hour window and that carpet does not need to be removed from the floor we just clean it up dry it out and you’re good to go 🙂

Or we can do a stretch in carpet where we put it over the top of a pad which case well, the carpet will need to be pulled up.

Usually to get it dry fast enough and you can take that out into a garage or something and try to again get some evaporator some fans going and again get it dry in that 24 to 48-hour window if possible and the pad gets thrown away.
