hi all. with the recent few months of bad snow and rain my drivers side carpet seems to be sodden wet

i took the mat out and dried it. i then dried as much up as possible. i even used a hairdryer

im aware when it gets warmer this will automatically dry

any tips to help out at all. its only in the middle of the drivers side. it feels like the protective bit under the carpet is sodden as well

Apart from removing it, there are a few options.

If it is proper sodden, get as much out by squeezing the area with a sponge, remove as much out as you can.

If it was me, I would then invest in a few big bags of silica gel and leave them tucked in a sensible place for a few weeks. You can buy reusable bags that you can dry out in an oven.

If it is so bad that the windows are covered in condensation from it, leave them open an inch are so if you are able until the worst is gone.

Drive with the windows cracked open, and the heater maxed out, directed at the floor.

Not a quick process, but will get you there in the end.
